First falling in love with a man from a dream, who she later learns to be Liu Mengmei, Du Li-niang awakes with a broken heart and a crippling longing for her lover. Feeling oppressed and with few options to resolve the situation and bring her and Liu Mengmei together, Du Li-niang consciously allows her depression and broken heart to consume and kill her.

She plans on killing her children because she believes that she is rescuing them from a hand more hostile to murder them. Although this may convince some readers that she does have a heart with a sense of protecting her children, there is also a darker reason for this sinful act. In one particular scene, the Corinthian women begged her not to do this, but Medea replied with, “this will cause my husband to feel the most pain.” Reading this piece, readers will surely realize that having Jason suffer in anguish was her way of regaining peace, viewing her as the antagonist of this play.
