Jocasta of Oedipus

Jocasta of Oedipus

As we have obviously not covered Oedipus in depth, this writing assignment will be geared toward having you do some further examination on your own.

Examine the character of Jocasta. In particular, look at her in the light of the Aristotelian concepts of necessary and probable, cause and effect, pity and fear, and recognition and reversal. In addition, consider her relative to hamartia and hubris. Some scholars consider her as a female counterpart to Oedipus. Is this true?
