Oedipus and Jocasta: Let Sleeping Ills Lie
In Oedipus Rex, Jocasta tells Oedipus, “Don’t seek it! I am sick, and that’s enough!” (Sophocles 38). To what extent do you think that Oedipus and Jocasta should let sleeping ills lie? Are there things that are not worth knowing for them? Why or why not? In a post of approximately 200 words, examine the following question using specific detail from the play, including quotations.
