Medea's Portrayal Of Madea

102 Words1 Page
Madea is quite often called Euripides 's magnum opus for a multitude of reasons, and one. His portrayal of Medea as both a victim of society but also a cold, cunning and manipulative killer brought light to the issues of slavery, women’s rights and equality in ancient Greece. His greatest work shows how Medea’s manipulation and scheming allowed her to reach her goals, the danger that she posed to others because of her intelligence, how she was ostracized by commoners and scholars alike due to that intelligence, and how she used her cleverness and cunning in order to exact her revenge on Jason.
