  • Medea isn t just about pre feminist ideals, mental illness, revenge, or betrayal It is a commentary on society, ostensibly Ancient Greek society, but also our global society today Euripides does something so revolutionary and foreign that the Greek audiences used to tales of heroes or tragedies driven by men must have been flabbergasted and appalled Medea is the first all powerful female character She makes Electra look like a whiny, helpless, pitiable woman Medea shows that in ancient Greece, t [...]
