One of the prophesies about the Dragon Reborn is that Aes Sedai will swear loyalty to the Dragon Reborn, which happens in an earlier book, "Lord of Chaos". Rand hates being told what he needs to do by Aes Sedai who cite prophecy.

Discuss the following: Trace and analyze the occurrences of prophesy in "Winter's Heart". Many fantasy novels include some "prophesy" in their storyline. Why do you think this is? Do you think Rand knowing about the prophesies about him will help him? How could it hinder him? How does knowing prophesy in any book (or real life) perhaps make it become "self-fulfilling"?
