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 She is treated as an intruder and danger to society mainly because she is different and knows things other people do not want to see She is the witch that narrowminded provincial men like to hunt the threat to traditional family structures that scares the community to the point of becoming evil She is the wronged women who has to bear the shame and the conseuences of her husband s weakness and treachery I have thought of teaching the play with a global citizenship focus after seeing recent developments in the world as being foreign once again has a great impact on your life your perception in mainstream society and your outlook on the futureMedea is the archetype of a person who won t accept injustice without fighting back The way she chooses to do this according to Euripides causes acute nausea of course which might explain why her social suffering and fight against an oppressive mainstream community has not become well known and symbolicChrista Wolf came up with an interpretation of Medea that took away the guilt of infanticide and left the failure of the strong vocal woman as the main focus I liked that idea as it is acceptable to modern readers However nothing beats Euripides complex Medea in my eyes The brutality of her fate matches the brutality of human beings and their response to change and diversity
