What Was Medea's Exile

165 Words1 Page
Not only was Medea exiled from inanimate things, but Jason also exiled her from himself. She was a misfit in Corinth. She associated with the wrong religion, wrong language, wrong relatives, and alas, not nearly as astounding or useful to the ambitious Jason as Glauce, daughter of King Creon of Corinth. Jason didn’t want to deal with the problems Medea held, so he did what he could to get rid of her as quick as possible. To do this, he married Glauce and banished Medea so that she was not present with the problems she had the potential to cause. In addition to this exile, Jason had more plans than Medea thought. What she didn’t know is that Jason also planned on keeping the children, exiling her once more, from her children, and her motherhood.
