Chapter Summary

This chapter looks at details of two scenes from the marriage of Jason and Medea, to see how their lives, though soon to be separated, are still entangled not only by their past, but in the very structures of the language Jason uses to prove his superiority and in the means Medea uses to manipulate the expectations Jason has of her as a woman like all the rest of her sex in order to gain his participation in his own destruction and that of his family. At the end of the fourth episode we might remember the words of Medea's Nurse and think again of what it meant to Medea to agree with Jason in all things.

Keywords: Jason; Medea; Medea's Nurse
