Oh foolish people, who killed my Nag!” She loved Nag as much as a cobra could love anyone.

In the play, Oedipus the King, there are many different examples of situational, dramatic, and verbal irony. Irony is very prevalent during this play, mostly because of the backstory of Oedipus. Oedipus’s parents were presented with an oracle that stated their son, Oedipus, would eventually destroy the city of Thebes, kill his father, and lie with his own mother (Oedipus Rex 1205-1206). As the story goes on, Thebes is hit with a plague and the only way to get rid of it is to exile or kill the murderer of King Laius, the king of Thebes (99-108). Although Oedipus was determined to find the murderer of Laius, it ended up being himself (1118-1123).
The “Inferno” is a story written by Dante Alighieri, about his spiritual journey through the circles of hell, with the help of his companion Virgil as his guide. Through the journey, they visit a total of nine circles; where they encounter many monsters. The characteristics Dante attribute to those monsters are drawn from classical Greek and Roman mythological creatures. They meet such mythical monsters like Minos in the second circle, Cerberus in the third circle and Minotaur in the seventh circle. Dante uses allegories or extended metaphors (“Topic: Allegory”), to illustrate those monsters he encounters throughout the journey as an instrument of punishment and symbol for sins based on their mythological history, in a way that Minos symbolize justice, Minotaur a symbol of violence in a form of self-punishment and Cerberus as an allegory of gluttony sin.

Throughout the play, one can see that Oedipus’s fate was determined by forces outside his control, as seen by his lack of agency over the events leading to his eventual fate. The intractable gods’ manipulation in Oedipus’s fate is clearly shown by the various prophecies delivered by various oracles and prophets in the play. The first word of god in Oedipus the King commands the citizens of the plague-infested city to “drive out, and not to leave uncured within this country, a pollution we have nourished in our land” (96-98).
