This paper discusses two almost monosyllabic iambic trimeters (OT 370 and OC 787) which appear to have the same word shape; it is highly probable that in his last play Sophocles was consciously quoting an earlier passage of his production, since the two verses are pronounced by the same character (Oedipus) in similar dramatic circumstances.

Abstract

This paper discusses two almost monosyllabic iambic trimeters (OT 370 and OC 787) which appear to have the same word shape; it is highly probable that in his last play Sophocles was consciously quoting an earlier passage of his production, since the two verses are pronounced by the same character (Oedipus) in similar dramatic circumstances.
Sophocles, Average Words in Iambic Trimeters, Self-quotation, Oedipus’ Character.
