She was the wife of Laius and, by him, mother (and wife) of Oedipus, Antigone, Eteocles, Polynices and Ismene.
The articles on Antigone & Eteocles etc say that they are the children of Oedipus. The text on this article seems to say that they are the children of Laius. -- Tarquin
the above is now fixed -- thank you Brion! -- Tarquin
This entire article is poorly written and has no sources. Not to mention that most of it is about Oedipus and not Jocasta. Can someone fix this? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 18:17, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
agree, very poorly written needs to be fixed 188.8.131.52 (talk) 11:20, 9 December 2008 (UTC)
And the article claims that Polyneices kills Creon, which is going to make the plot of Antigone just plain impossible. Italtrav (talk) 23:37, 28 January 2009 (UTC)
In some versions of the myth Oedipus is left by the servant on the moutaintop to die of exposure but the sheperd finds him by chance instead of the version where the servant finds the sheperd and gives him the baby. Perhaps it would be smart to put that version of the story in parentheses in this article. You could be like- "Oedipus was given to some sheperds (although some versions of the story say he was discovered by some sheperds after being left to die of exposure). Do I have a point or I'm just being an annoying Wikipedia critic? Please comment.-James Pandora Adams —Preceding unsigned comment added by 184.108.40.206 (talk) 18:13, 9 March 2011 (UTC)
