In sum, Medea was a figure rich in mythology before BC, frequently treated in a range of almost entirely lost sources, offering a wide choice of narrative and dramatic options — goddess, witch, wife, lover, mother, a helper and a harmer of those she encounters. Specific innovations are hard to identify, but Euripides makes sure that all of the options have a role to play.

Much depends on dating Neophron see above , though e. Johnston suggests other reasons for pre-Euripidean filicide. Oxy and its suggestion that Euripides reworked a scene in which Medea kills her children on stage, see Luppe and Colomo 48—9. On staging, see Mastronarde 37—44; Mossman 48—53; Wyles ; more generally Halleran The choral anapaests —63, —63, — , then introduce a scene focused upon revenge: The first four stasima comprise two strophic pairs, the first pair dominated by dactylo-epitrite and the second by aeolic rhythms except in the fourth stasimon, whose second pair is more varied: The most obvious considerations are grounded in her sex and gender.

Her marriage to Jason illustrates the point: See esp. Swift —1 on the Medea and —72 on the genre ; also Swift — Gellie ; Moreau —5; Boedeker ; Sourvinou-Inwood ; Zerba ; also Luschnig 7—36, — Zeitlin esp.

By contrast, Medea contracts her own marriage, betraying her father and stealing her dowry the golden fleece , and sealing the deal by killing her own brother. A relationship begun in such a manner with such a figure could hardly be expected to end well. The play avers her prior devotion to Jason and her children 10— Interestingly, maternal filicide is much more common than one might assume: Yet Medea herself utters extremely negative comments about her sex e.

She is no feminist revolutionary, and we should note that the absence of compensations held by fifth-century Athenians to balance out her criticisms mark Medea as particularly isolated, as she recognises —8: She is truly alone, in ways and extents that few fifth-century Athenian women or men could have countenanced.

Partially this reflects her appropiation of masculine attitudes. Indeed, this above all defeats her maternal feelings, since she wishes to harm her deadliest enemy so as to cause him the greatest grief —, , See also —9, —5; also —3 with Mastronarde ad loc. Other compensations include the range of social and ritual functions provided for women in Athenian life. Hopman —6 suggests that, in the princess, Medea kills a younger version of herself.

On the cult for her sons, see Johnson , Scullion with reply in Seaford —30 ; Pache 9—48; Mossman ad —88, —5; also Moreau —3 on supposed divine origins; Boedeker —2 approximates her to Aphrodite, Hopman to Scylla. Page xviii—xxi , though it would be wrong also to ignore it: Sourvinou-Inwood —4 suggests Greek costume throughout the play until the final scene, where she becomes or returns to the barbarian, Wyles 53—4 barbarian costume throughout.

More nuance in Mills —3; Pucci 91—; Gellie 17—18; Moreau ; Mossman Medea is many things abhorrent to a fifth-century Athenian, and many things sympathetic and understandable as well. She triumphs deservedly over an oath- breaker, a weakling and a fool, and her revenge also stains her character and disassociates her from the human world.

The Men around Medea Masculinity is central to explorations of heroic myth on the Athenian stage,64 and it is a reflection of their failings that Medea defeats every male figure she faces, before and after the play, except importantly Theseus. She does this in a variety of ways — 58 See McClure —9: On the horror of the speech and its embedded witnesses, see Barrett 93—6. Postponement reflects little more than a shift away from mythologically connected trilogies, and delayed resolutions are common in later tragedy: The main victim in this play, Jason, is deeply unimpressive.

The list of her benefits is both long and dangerous — ; he has to reflect not only on the considerable justice of her claim, but also the ruthless, fearless and supernatural aspects of her aid. One may question the wisdom of association with such a figure, but it is doubly unwise to betray that figure as he realises when faced with the corpses of his children — Even this is not the extent of it: Nor is Aegeus untouched by paternal weakness, in his case the desire to have children.

Though wrongly criticised, his coincidental arrival is crucial in two ways. This is not just a matter of refuge, for he presents the resolutionary example of the parent-child theme. Holland adduces also the difficulties which the Aeolids had in their progeny. McDemott 98—9; Luschnig —30 see Creon as a tyrant justly punished, but he is hardly arbitrary or cruel, especially after her threats —5, —85, , etc.

Pucci 91—2; McDermott 84—9; Gibert 66—7; Seidensticker —6. The marching anapaests of their first entrance —8 establish sympathy immediately: See also Grethlein —9 for the contrast between Jason and Aegeus. Hose —1 esp.

I 11—39; Foley ; Mastronarde 88—; on the Med. See also Beck and Luschnig —56 for differently, and unconvincing political-historical readings. Beck relates this to Athenian-Corinthian relations in —1 BC n. Mastronarde ad loc.

The fourth stasimon confirms their certainty in the deaths to come, first briefly of the children and more fully the new bride —88 , before turning to Jason —5 and then Medea herself — , but they still side with Medea despite her intentions: Now the clear metrical divisions between the first and second strophic pair evident in the first three stasima begins to break down, and dactylo- epitrite along with other, non-epinician rhythms intrudes into the second pair.

An astounding erasure of human life and community, their utterance reflects the effect of the plot and its characters upon them, and the difficulties they face in reconciling their roles within the drama. Many scholars e. The second strophic pair begins with the offstage children calling out for aid and the chorus vacillating over aiding them —81 , before comparing Medea poorly with Ino,94 who fell into the sea bearing her child or children on her back. This stumble into silence is fitting in several ways, since, by the end of the play, the chorus have nothing meaningful left to say: The tragic chorus has long been imbued with particular authority in these terms,96 but this chorus compromises itself on every ground.

It contributes powerfully to the emotional and structural curve of the narrative, to which it always remains closely bound,97 but it is as distanced from the audience, and as tainted by its participation in the drama, as are the characters themselves. Influence and Reception The Medea established itself as a classic very soon after its first performance, with the first effects apparent in the visual arts.

Snakes are associated with Medea earlier in the artistic tradition Schmidt nos. Taplin —23 suggests that the late fifth-century iconography reflects a later production of the play, and Wyles connects them with Athenian autochthony.

If Neophron is later, then the Medea was being closely copied soon after its first production. Bibliography Aichele, K. Allan, W. Medea, London. Arcellaschi, A. Barrett, J. Poetics and the Messenger in Greek Tragedy, Berkeley. Bartel, H. Battezzato, L. Beck, J. Boedeker, D. Boyle, A. Boyle, A, J.

The play is also the only Greek tragedy in which a kin-killer makes it unpunished to the end of the play, and the only one about child-killing in which the deed is performed in cold blood as opposed to in a state of temporary madness.

The character of Medea has variously been interpreted as either fulfilling her role of "mother and wife" and as acting as a "proto-feminist".

Medea of Euripides by Euripides

The play begins with Medea in a blind rage towards Jason for arranging to marry Glauce , the daughter of Creon king of Corinth. The nurse, overhearing Medea's grief, fears what she might do to herself or her children. Creon, in anticipation of Medea's wrath, arrives and reveals his plans to send her into exile. Medea pleads for one day's delay and eventually Creon acquiesces.

In the next scene Jason arrives to explain his rationale for his apparent betrayal. He explains that he couldn't pass up the opportunity to marry a royal princess, as Medea is only a barbarian woman, but hopes to someday join the two families and keep Medea as his mistress.

Medea, and the chorus of Corinthian women, do not believe him. She reminds him that she left her own people for him "I rescued you [ Jason promises to support her after his new marriage "If you wish me to give you or the children extra money for your trip into exile, tell me; I'm ready to give it with a lavish hand" [14] , but Medea spurns him: "Go on, play the bridegroom!

Perhaps [ He reveals to her that despite his marriage he is still without children. Aegeus, unaware of Medea's plans for revenge, agrees. Medea then returns to plotting the murders of Glauce and Creon.

She decides to poison some golden robes a family heirloom and gift from the sun god Helios and a coronet, in hopes that the bride will not be able to resist wearing them, and consequently be poisoned. Medea resolves to kill her own children as well, not because the children have done anything wrong, but because she feels it is the best way to hurt Jason. She calls for Jason once more and, in an elaborate ruse, apologizes to him for overreacting to his decision to marry Glauce.

When Jason appears fully convinced that she regrets her actions, Medea begins to cry in mourning of her exile. She convinces Jason to allow her to give the robes to Glauce in hopes that Glauce might get Creon to lift the exile. Eventually Jason agrees and allows their children to deliver the poisoned robes as the gift-bearers.

Forgive what I said in anger! I will yield to the decree, and only beg one favor, that my children may stay. They shall take to the princess a costly robe and a golden crown, and pray for her protection.

Medea kills her son, Campanian red-figure amphora , c. In the next scene a messenger recounts Glauce and Creon's deaths. When the children arrived with the robes and coronet, Glauce gleefully put them on and went to find her father.

Soon the poisons overtook Glauce and she fell to the floor, dying horribly and painfully. Creon clutched her tightly as he tried to save her and, by coming in contact with the robes and coronet, got poisoned and died as well.

The bride had died in horrible agony; for no sooner had she put on Medea's gifts than a devouring poison consumed her limbs as with fire, and in his endeavor to save his daughter the old father died too.
