While most Greek tragedies would involve the victim directly murdering the violator, Ino, Procne, and Medea defy this convention and instead use their children as pawns for revenge. Instead of murdering the enemy in cold blood, the loss of one’s children incites enough rage, sadness, and defeat to destroy anyone. The next point that Mills addresses is the debate over whether Medea is a supernatural figure or a human being driven to extremes by passion.

But despite her mystical past, her powers do not have a history of being used viciously.

More specifically, after finally fighting back and killing Bob, he says to Ponyboy “‘I killed him’ he said slowly. ‘I killed that boy”’(Hinton 56). Here the author is explaining how shocked Johnny was once he killed the Soc.

Cronos killed his father, Uranus, and when Uranus almost dead, he foretold Cronos future by saying the following to him, “You murder me now and steal my throne---but one of your own sons will dethrone you, for crime begets crime,” said Uranus in the book by Bernard Evslin.
