Le parricide dans le mythe d'Œdipe : enjeux de la connaissance dans la présentation des faits.

Abstract : In this paper the author deals with the way one pattern of the Oedipus' myth is represented, namely the parricide. Her study, based on hermeneutic and comparatist analyses, focuses on what is said about this murder in the Oedipus rex (Oedipus' central speech), in the Phoenician women (Jocasta's speech in the prolog, Oedipus' laments in the exodus) and in the Oedipus Coloneus (Oedipus' answers to the chor, his defense speech). She examines what Oedipus knew when he met Laius according to these speeches (Did he have doubts about who his parents were? Had he already heard Apollo's oracle in Delphi?) and how these details are told in these different speeches (Is Oedipus' lack of knowledge highlighted? Does it have any consequences on the way Oedipus' deed is presented? ). The author's aim is to study the different manners used by playrights when integrating knowledge into the depiction of a tragic fate
