In Oedipus, what are Jocasta's views on oracles and prophecy, and how do they differ from those of the chorus?
In Oedipus, Jocasta states that she does not believe in oracles or prophecies. This is because she wrongly thinks she has beaten the prophecy that said her son would kill his father and marry his mother. The chorus violently disagrees with her view. They believe that if prophecies are not true, the gods have no power and there is no order in the universe.
