Disgusted to learn that he is her own son, Jocasta commits suicide. This confuses Oedipus Coloneus book a bit since in other plays by Euripides he is king of Athens during Heracles' reign in Thebes. When Oedipus reluctantly identifies himself, the Chorus cries out in horror, begging Oedipus to leave Colonus at once. After he relates his sorrowful story to them, Theseus enters, and in contrast to the prying chorus states, "I know all about you, son of Laius. However for some reason Creon arrives at Colonus to take them back, and forcefully that that. This suggests that willful action is in some part of guilt; the fact that Oedipus is "rationally innocent" — that he sinned unknowingly — decreases his guilt, allowing his earthly sufferings to serve as sufficient expiation for his sins.

In a parent's cause Toil, if there be toil, is of no account. Who could possibly take me against the will of my friends here? And thou, my child, whilom thou wentest forth, Eluding the Cadmeians' vigilance, To bring thy father all the oracles Concerning Oedipus, and didst make thyself My faithful lieger, when they banished me. Oedipus Have you really taken my daughter? Theseus An odd request, Oedipus.

Oedipus angrily curses Polynices, prophesying that he and his brother Eteocles will die at one another's hand. Oedipus rewards the Athenian citizens for their kindness by making his grave near their city, swearing that Athens will be protected as long as his grave remains a secret. Theseus Is this because of your sons or something to do with me? Oedipus O, I am lost! Chorus How can you say that?

Analysis Oedipus at Colonus is set many years after Oedipus the King, and the long-wandering Oedipus has changed his perspective on his exile.

The play is set in Colonus, which was a small village outside of Athens though I did a Google Maps search and found that it is now a suburb of Athens that lies to the Northwest of the Acropolis, just slightly to the west of the main Athens Railway station, though I doubt you will find any ancient ruins there.

Athens is protected by Athene, and the city is named in her honor. Okay, Creon and Theseus come to blows, and it is ordained there that Thebes and Athens were to become enemies, but this is what they call rewriting the past.

Throughout the story, the Chorus constantly offers advice and opinions about events that are occurring; these range from praising the gods to reprimanding Oedipus for his past crimes. I guess this is about Oedipus' coming to terms with his fate, and in a way allowing him to be cleansed.
