Medea is a play about society, and how it deals with people who do not fit into the dominant cultural code.

It is about power, marriage, betrayal, hate and revenge as well, but the most important aspect is the typical fate of a strong and intelligent woman, following her husband to his home country

Mήδεια = Medea (play), Euripides

Medea is an ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides, based upon the myth of Jason and Medea and first produced in 431 BC.

The plot centers on the actions of Medea, a former princess of the "barbarian" kingdom of Colchis, and the wife of Jason; she finds her positio

حواستون باشه به زنی که براتون اژدها میکشه ، بخاطرتون به کشورش خیانت میکنه و برادرش رو میکشه؛ خیانت نکنید . چون قطعا میتونه برای عذاب دادنتون به راحتی حتی بچه‌هاتونم بکشه و بره با رقیب ازدواج کنه.

I wish Shakespeare had written a play where the Macbeths got divorced. You'd love to see what Lady Macbeth would have to say about it, right? The thing with marrying an asshole is, divorcing them isn't going to be pretty.

Here's the ugliest breakup in history, the most famous play by the nastiest Gre

Me encanta leer a los griegos. Los precursores de toda la literatura moderna, del teatro, la épica y el drama. Las tragedias griegas siempre me atrajeron luego de mi paso de un año y medio en la carrera de Licenciatura en Letras.
Allí pude leer varias obras de los aedos más famosos como Esquilo y Sóf

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 marr

در اشتباه نخواهید بود اگر بگویید مردمان اعصار دیرین احمق بودند و نادان نیز هم. آنانی که آوازهای جشن ها و جشنواره ها و میهمانی های شبانه را ابداع کردند. آوازهای شاد سرشار از زندگی. اما هیچ کس بر تمامی تارهای چنگ راهی نیافته تا رنج نفرت بار انسان های دردمند را بزداید. مرگ ها و تقدیرات شوم، که خانمانان

Medea, with her suffering, her hatred, her cruelty, has been present this week in my life. Her myth living in various guises of representation. And all engaged me in various degrees and manner.

It all started on Monday when, touring the Thyssen Musem in the search of paintings which had to do with t

“I understand too well the dreadful act
I'm going to commit, but my judgement
can't check my anger, and that incites
the greatest evils human beings do.”

- Medea about to Kill her Children, Eugène Delacroix (1838.)

As terrible as Medea’s actions are at the end of the play, I can’t help but feel sorr

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

Although this was first written by William Congreve in 1697 (not the Bible) the distant origins of the sentiment is frozen in human memory; but its earliest dramatic expression may have originated with Euripides. I think he just gave it words; the instinct of s
