But the whole society overlooked Jason’s actions of betraying his own family and blood in secrecy. According to the society, revenge was more sinful especially when a woman committed it, but there is no sin of breaking one’s love especially when men are permitted to do whatever they wish. In the end, Medea’s action will always be unforgivable since she committed murders of the innocent in the eyes of Greek society, but what about Jason’s deeds? No one has clearly defined his errors because he is a man who will always be
Also she did not want to leave any possibility of revenge that the children could take on killing of their father’s wife. Medea’s actions are justified by her emotions as they are difficult thing to control at times. She is also raised in a different culture so she did not conform to the values of Corinth and did not easily accept that Jason married another woman. For the male audience, the evil deeds of Medea confirm their belief that women should be uneducated and kept at home. Medea was a divine character.
These elements insist the nurse to connect with another person at a deep psycho-social and spiritual level. This approach requires the tools of holistic communication which engages the nurses to empathize, sympathize and provide therapeutic care across their cultural, spiritual and social backgrounds. The literature review documents that much patient dissatisfaction and many complaints are due to breakdown in communication. The potential communication can well be established by regulating patient’s emotions, feelings, ideas, perceptions and expectations. This study explored the psychosocial care and the potential barriers that come across during the nursing care.
The Three Round Arguments In the first argument between Medea and Jason show how loyalty she is to Jason. She was capatable to betray her family to save the love of her life, Jason. She would do innumerable things to have what she want or need to be happy without care who got hurt in the way. I also can see that she is angry at Jason because he left her to marry pricess Glauce the daugther of Creon king of Corinth. When Jason told her that he married the princess for her and their children to give them a better life ¨ I shall show you that my action was wise, not swayed by passion, and directed towards your interest and my children¨( Medea lines 549-551).
While still having exiled her from Corinth, the royal family shows many kindnesses to Medea that are not required, and in return Medea has them fatally poisoned. Her actions benefit no one but herself and go against everything not only motherhood stands for, but that humanity stands for. Because of these reasons, Jason should not be considered the villain of this play, but instead the murderous witch Medea should
And as a foreigner in Corinth abandoned by her husband, she faces even more challenges than the native women of Corinth did. She is not blameless, in what she did, but she deserves some sympathy because of how she was immobilized by all the duties thrown on her by her society. Medea voices how she has been suppressed in her society. She notes, “We women are the most unfortunate creatures” (L 231). Medea’s tone throughout her speech is proper, confident, and angry.
Medea, The True Wrongdoer in Euripides’ “Medea” The tragic drama titled “Medea”; written by Euripides is a Greek play about a female sorcerer, Medea, banished by her hometown to be with her love, Jason. Although, this did not work in her favor since she discovered that her lover is with another woman. This does trigger some tension and emotional breakdown within Medea, enough to plan another malicious act that 's very disturbing and would change the reader’s perspective of who’s the victim and the criminal. The truth is, Medea is the real wrongdoer in this story, not her husband, for she became aggrieved, obstinate, and conniving. Once the beginning of the story took effect, the nurse shares her perspective on Medea to herself, giving valuable evidence to further strengthen the thesis.
But as discussed before, hatred was only a consequence of betrayal. Even if it did blind her to a certain extent, the hatred did not completely erase the motherly affection Medea has for her children. At many points in the play, Medea speaks of her children as a real caring mother would. This proves how there were contradicting emotions boiling inside of her through the story. “Oh my children Why are you looking at me in that way?
'She is no ordinary woman', her pride was her strength and her fuel of dedication which drove her to achieve her ambitious goal. The play starts off by showing Medea suffering and crying upon her husband's betrayal and it presents an ordinary woman of the time. 'Oh I am wretched pity me for my sufferings! Oh, if only I could die'. Her anguish and anger was relatable by the audience because her sorrow and grief symbolises an average woman of her time who would have reacted in a similar way after a loss of her husband.
It works pretty well, too. Medea manages to convince these Corinthian women to stand idly by while she assassinates their royal family. The chorus of Corinthian wives accepts this argument and promise to help Medea achieve vengeance, swayed by the idea that they too could have been in her place. Despite the monstrosity of Medea’s plans, her foreignness succeeds in evoking sympathy for her. After the killing when Jason confronts Medea he says, "No woman from Greece would dare to do this ... You're not a woman.
