Medea es una tragedia basada en el mito de Jasón y Medea que se representó por primera vez en el año 431 d.C y que se considera como una de las grandes obras del canon occidental. La estructura de la obra es muy diferente de otras tragedias griegas por su simplicidad, ya que en todas las escenas participan solo dos actores: Medea, de quien destaca su gran habilidad para manipular a poderosas figuras masculinas para lograr sus propios fines, y otro personaje. Se trata además de la única tragedia griega en la que un asesino de parientes queda impune hasta el final de la obra y en la que un asesinato de niños se lleva a cabo a sangre fría en lugar de en estado de locura temporal. Los temas centrales de la obra son la pasión, el amor y la venganza.

Los mejores libros jamás escritos La más importante de las obras de Eurípides y uno de los trabajos que mejor representan su concepción de lo trágico, muy distinta a la de Sófocles y Esquilo Jasón no solo regresó de la Cólquide con el vellocino de oro, sino que también sedujo a la hija del rey Eetes, Medea. A su vuelta a Yolco, hallan un escenario de traición familiar del que huyen dejando un rastro carmesí. Cuando recalen en Corinto, Medea desplegará una pavorosa venganza contra Jasón al descubrir que pretende a la hija del rey Creonte. Este imperecedero personaje femenino recoge las leyendas que veían a la hechicera como una mujer exótica y salvaje que, por amor, despierta el lado atroz de lo humano. Sus coetáneos decían que Eurípides prefería representar «las cosas como son y no como debieran», y ello quizá sea lo que nos sigue atrayendo de esta princesa extranjera: su cruda realidad, su repulsión natural hacia el perjurio, su asimilación negada, su temible ira, su compromiso con la sangre. La presente edición de Medea cuenta con la versión y la introducción del helenista, escritor y traductor Ramón Irigoyen. Asimismo, los profesores de comunicación audiovisual de la Universidad Pompeu Fabra Jordi Balló y Xavier Pérez han escrito a cuatro manos el epílogo «La venganza triunfal». «Venga, pues, ármate de valor, corazón mío. ¿Por qué aplazar el perpetrar el terrible y necesario mal?»

Euripides' Medea is one of the most often read, studied and performed of all Greek tragedies. A searingly cruel story of a woman's brutal revenge on a husband who has rejected her for a younger and richer bride, it is unusual among Greek dramas for its acute portrayal of female psychology. Medea can appear at once timeless and strikingly modern. Yet, the play is very much a product of the political and social world of fifth century Athens and an understanding of its original context, as well as a consideration of the responses of later ages, is crucial to appreciating this work and its legacy. This collection of essays by leading academics addresses these issues, exploring key themes such as revenge, character, mythology, the end of the play, the chorus and Medea's role as a witch. Other essays look at the play's context, religious connotations, stagecraft and reception. The essays are accompanied by David Stuttard's English translation of the play, which is performer-friendly, accessible yet accurate and closely faithful to the original.

Euripides' Medea, produced in the year that the Peloponnesian War began, presents the first in a parade of vivid female tragic protagonists across the Euripidean stage. Throughout the centuries it has been regarded as one of the most powerful of the Greek tragedies. McDermott's starting point is an assessment of the character of Medea herself. She confronts the question: What does an audience do with a tragic protagonist who is at once heroic, sympathetic, and morally repugnant? We see that the play portrays a world from which all order has been deliberately and pointedly removed and in which the very reality or even potentiality of order is implicitly denied. 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. One who seeks for &"meaning&" in this tragedy will come closest to finding it by examining everything in the play (characters, their actions, choruses, mythic plots and allusions to myth, place within literary traditions and use of conventions) in close conjunction with a feasible reconstruction of the audience's expectations in each regard, for we see that it is a keynote of Euripides' dramaturgy to fail to fulfill these expectations. This study proceeds from the premise that Medea's murder of her children is the key to the play. We see that the introduction of this murder into the Medea-saga was Euripides' own innovation. We see that the play's themes include the classic opposition of Man and Woman. Finally, we see that in Greek culture the social order is maintained by strict adherence within the family to the rule that parents and children reciprocally nurture one another in their respective ages of helplessness. Through the heroine's repeated assaults on this fundamental and sacred value, the playwright most persuasively portrays her as an incarnation of disorder. This book is for all students and scholars of Greek literature, whether in departments of Classics or English or Comparative Literature, as well as those concerned with the role of women in literature.

To make Medea more accessible for the modern reader, our Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition includes a glossary of the more difficult words, as well as convenient sidebar notes to enlighten the reader on aspects that may be confusing or overlooked. In doing this, it is our intention that the reader may more fully enjoy the beauty of the verse, the wisdom of the insights, and the impact of the drama.Witch, barbarian, foreigner, or a woman wronged and committed to the most horrific kind of justice, Medea is a heroine who makes her audience shudder. Euripides shows us an astonishingly strong female protagonist, whom some readers have identified as the first feminist in Western literature. Seeing where her strength leads her, though, we must wonder if she was intended to be portrayed a model or as a warning.Because the three other plays that were traditionally performed with Medea have been lost, it is difficult to say whether Euripides? Athenian audience was as upset by the play as modern readers are. It won only third place at the biggest festival in the city, indicating that ancient audiences also found it controversial. With its still-relevant examination of marriage, love, and revenge, and its explicit scenes of mental and emotional agony, Medea continues to demand our attention.
