Read teiresias’s lines from scene 1 of oedipus the king and answer the question. you are a king. but where argument’s concerned i am your man, as much a king as you. i am not your servant, but apollo’s. i have no need of creon to speak for me. listen to me. you mock my blindness, do you? but i say that you, with both your eyes, are blind: you cannot see the wretchedness of your life, what is the significance of the above statement in relation to the play’s conclusion? oedipus treats his inferiors poorly but ultimately grants them the same respect he grants to nobility. while teiresias appears to be mocking oedipus, the real message is one of warning about the forces working against the king. oedipus earns great fame for answering the riddle of the sphinx but ultimately loses his crown to a common man just as oedipus is unable to conceive that he has done wrong in the past, he is unable to imagine that his enviable position is impermanent.
