    So listen! King Creonalso fearing what Medea might do, banishes her, declaring that she and her children must leave Corinth immediately. As the chorus laments her decision, the children are heard screaming. Medea appears above the palace, in a chariot drawn by dragons. Jason's voyage with the Argonauts predates the Trojan War, and represents the first naval assault by the Greeks against an Eastern people.

    An anger most implacable! However, he then left her, seeking to advance his political ambitions by marrying Glaucethe daughter of King Creon of Corinth. Tell me then, Jason. Throughout the centuries it has been regarded as one of the most powerful of the Greek tragedies. Grow up a bit and, rest assured, that your father and the gods who love us will take good care of us.

    Say on. No one would know about you. Medea and the Chorus of Corinthian women do not believe him. Stay, if you need to but just one more day. Yes, you, Medea!

Medea and Electra book

We, on the other hand, we, women, can only let our eyes fall upon one person and one person only, our husband. Creon not to be confused with the Creon of Sophocles' Theban cycleking of Corinth and Jason's new father-in-law, enters and tells Medea that she is banished.

Long life to you! Why look at me like this? My concern is only about the children. She is the one blessed with luck now.

Medea and Other Plays

Euripides' plays invert, subvert, and pervert traditional assertions of order; they challenge their audience's most basic tenets and assumptions about the moral, social, and civic fabric of mankind and replace them with a new vision based on clearly articulated values of his own.

Medea Lust. As the Chorus of women laments her decision, the children are heard screaming. Chorus And you, you, ill-fated Jason, your marriage will be your dire fortune. No, my dear old man.

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. Now, mind, I trust you to be discreet.

Swear by the Earth thou treadest, by the Sun, Sire of my sires, and all the gods as one. The Chorus begs Medea to reconsider these plans, but Medea insists that her revenge must be complete. Chorus Gifts from Hades! Medea Creon! Yet… come now, Jason!

No, my heart, no! Aigeas I swear by the Earth and by the bright light of Helios that I shall do all those things you just said. They know that I am ready to provide you and the children with anything you need.
