REVIEW Mήδεια õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Cambridge Translations from Greek Drama aims to eliminate the boundary between classics students and drama students Outstanding features of the books include full comment. Stronger than lover s love is lover s hate Incurable in each the wounds they make Euripides writes a masterpiece of love betrayal and revenge The theme of Medea is the extravagant hatred for the once bewildering love of the heroine for Jason was transformed when he repudiates her to marry another Medea had given up everything for the man she was led by the Gods to love above even herself She saved him from certain death she left the safety of her kingdom she even killed her own brother All in the name of her love for Jason To be abandoned for another womanMedea does not passively sit back and accept the injustice of Jason s actions she is definitely not silent in the face of injustice When she feels persecuted by man or men she asserts her own power assuming she has just as much right to act in this way as any man does Of all creatures that can feel and thinkwe women are the worst treated things alive The play evolves from a heartbroken melancholic Medea betrayed wife who languished in bed and incapable of even raising her eyelids apparently resigned to her fate to an effervescent and sanguine woman with a terrible desire for revenge that will not stop at infanticide for the utter destruction of her once once loved husband It is interesting to note that compared to the majority of Greek tragedies in Medea the sins and errors committed by Jason and Medea are due to their own actions and not blame it on their destiny or on some avenging GodMedea is certainly a terrible play infanticide is not an easy theme to read about a mother who kills her children is no easy theme They are the sun that lights his worldSo I will plunge him into darkness But revenge here has assumes life on its own and should prevail I understand too well the dreadful actI m going to commit but my judgementcan t check my anger and that incitesthe greatest evils human beings do It is intimate powerful and visceral In the play Medea s designation as a wife or mother is secondary to her own feelings as a woman A woman like me What am I like that s different from you or any man She appropriates an identity as an individual subject eual to the men who surround her eually powerful and eually wrong If she despises Jason for his ill use of her does she not commit eual crime with so many innocents to obtain her revengeHowever that is the essence of the play Hard as the theme may be this is the ultimate revenge drama Once again I couldn t help but be enthralled by the searing intensity of Euripedes tragedy Our tragedy however is that today we still witness crimes that remind us of this Greek play

SUMMARY Mήδεια

REVIEW Mήδεια õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB This authoritative and long established edition of the play Page guides the reader both student and scholar through this difficult text by means of a detailed commentary. Gracious hell hath no fury While tunneling through Ovid s Metamorphoses I ve been coming across a lot of familiar stories from childhood the ones that have stuck with me over the years and from which I find freuent references in popular culture and life in general such as this tale of a famous warrior who scorns his sorceress wife for another woman you dumbass the story of Medusa and Perseus the rape and imprisonment of Persephone etc I have also with wholly unchecked excitement discovered many myths which I was either previously unaware of or not yet old enough upon my first readings to feel the reverberations from them One such story is that of Philomela which during my reading started playing a familiar tune in my head which I finally managed to place it is Titus Andronicus minus the character Titus Andronicus More specifically it is the story of Titus s daughter Lavinia s tragic fate with all the rape tongue cutting and cannibalism included in the box Shakespeare you pomo re appropriating son of a gun Naturally wanting to read I investigated a bit and found that with the exception of Ovid and Shakespeare there really isn t much as far as plays or re tellings of the Philomela and Procne myth are concerned so I moved on to the next most fascinating story This is my long winded way of saying I think I will invest some time and read a bunch of these old Greek tragedies and Medea is the one I opted to start with Just because I can t sit through a musical doesn t mean I can t enjoy reading plays rightThis story is such a severe caricature of revenge that it makes Beatrix Kiddo look like a woman of marked restraint I won t spill it all here like so much baby blood and oozing princess flesh and ruin it all for you but I will attempt to analyze the moral encoded in this thing First is there one You read a lot about the vengeful nature of the gods almost no matter what ancient scripture or interpretation of scripture you are analyzing and blind though the rage and excessive though the punishments may often seem there is consistently at least an attempt at bigger picture lesson teaching This is not really the case with the mortals however The tales on Earth are about the wicked ways of mankind the bruised egos and battered hearts and the violent rage such insults can cause This is not a map of how to live this is human brutality exhibited I suppose if I were to draw any conclusions from stories such as that of Medea it would be that control over one s emotions is hard won if it s even remotely embraced at all the line between righteous vindication and moral depravity in fact between emotion fueled yet justifiable behavior and sheer insanity is hazy on the best of days I m still working through this in my head Basically there is no light here there isn t a shred of an upstanding character in this romantic turmoil everyone s some new mutation of a self centered asshole and lifehumankind are straight up fickle and mean so just deal with it already because all you can really do is try your best to break the bucking mare that is your brutal heartSome of the lines in this play are gorgeous but the final dialogue between Medea and Jason is so Jerry Springer that it drags the whole stage down on their heads I m not saying the crowd would ve egged the former couple but some of them would ve definitely gotten on the mic and screamed at these people to just shut up already inter splicing their advice with any number of obnoxiously censored curse words The last few pages were basically No I didn t Yes you did No you are No YOU ARE which was a disappointing finale to an otherwise great show All the same I would recommend it if you are interested in morally ambiguous revenge tales mythology scorned love poison discussions of the role of a good sex life in sustaining emotions how fleeting our hearts and minds are how cruel and self serving people can be violence as a human instinct the role of money and status in human interactions how women have been viewed throughout history physical and emotional pain family friends country sacrifice Oh it s harsh to think of what the future hidesSho nuff man
