Examples (SQL*Plus):

View the definition of myview:

set LONG 1000
select TEXT from DBA_VIEWS
where owner='myowner' and view_name='myview';

1000 should be more than large enough to read most view definitions, but if you want to set this exactly look at the TEXT_LENGTH column:

select TEXT_LENGTH from DBA_VIEWS
where view_name = 'myview';
