Allow the following questions to guide your responses: Why is this important? What does this reveal? Why does the author say it this way? What is the tone/mood of this passage? Theme: - “Teiresias Well, it will come what will, though I be mute. Oedipus Since come it must, thy duty is to tell me. Teiresias I have no more to say; storm as thou whilst, and give the rein to all thy pent-up rage.” This quote for the theme is significant because it shows the theme of fate and free will. This quote reveals that no matter what Oedipus does, fate -or destiny - will play out no matter what he wants to happen. The author chose to say this so readers could get an idea of what Teiresias was telling Oedipus; that fate is inevitable. The tone of these quotes is determination - an idea upheld fiercely.
