Beyond Revenge: Reading and Understanding Euripides’ MEDEA NEW

ID : 45308   
« back to classes page
CourseGraphic Euripides' version of the ancient Greek story of Medea, a woman who as a girl left behind her family and homeland on the Black Sea to follow Jason, the Greek adventurer, only to be faced with Greek suspicion and hatred, and to have Jason replace her with a Greek princess later. Medea took her revenge: but there's more to the story. We will read and explore the play for ancient and modern meanings for the lives of women, immigrants and foreigners within society, and what we and others are willing to tolerate in order to achieve dignity and respect within a hostile world. The final class will be a dramatic collaborative class reading of the play open to friends and the broader public.
