Medea by Euripides
One of the most tragic figures from classical antiquity, Euripides’ Medea has been venerated and denigrated over centuries. It remains one of the most celebrated, and controversial plays from the ancient world.
The play follows the tragic figure Medea, wife to the ancient hero Jason, who finds her place in Greek society threatened when Jason prepares to leave her for the princess of Corinth. Medea takes her vengeance by killing Jason’s new wife as well as her own children.
Considered almost sacrilegious during its date of creation, Medea has become one of the most celebrated plays to ever come from the classical world.
