Oedipus specifically states, “no special favors and no personal ties will tear the guilty party from my grasp,” (Seneca 210). In both plays, dramatic irony is found in Oedipus’ proclamation for finding out who the killer of Laius is. This is shown when Creon brings the news from Delphi that the city's plague is due to the murder of the last king Laius.

Oedipus at once takes the steps to find out who the killer is and announces that if the killer makes a confession he will receive only banishment instead of capital punishment.
Recently I realized that the staircase going to my supervisor’s office was rotting away and I decided not to do anything about, but make sure I was careful on them.
