De Thèbes à Colone : l’identité d’Œdipe comme savoir dangereux

Abstract : In the Oedipus Coloneus, Sophocles has chosen to give a new identity to the character of Oedipus by articulating it, as in Oedipus Rex, to self-knowledge and its dangers. He was soiled ; he becomes a savior, a hero-to-be, but remains dangerous because of the ambivalent powers which are now his and make its body the most wanted weapon. The play consists in fact in the progressive revelation about these two aspects of Oedipus’ identity that are in tension with one another.,
