It's one of the most famous stories in all of literature and psychiatry! Oedipus kills his father and marries his mother, Jocasta. Jocasta is actually a very important character. She is strong and wise, and she tries to counsel Oedipus to concentrate on the important things like running the kingdom and not putting too much stock in oracles. Jocasta commits suicide. http://www.enotes.com/oedipus-rex http://www.enotes.com/oedipus-rex/jocasta
