Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of passages of Medea cited in this book. Medea settles down in Corinth as the perfect wife to Jason, building his house and family. Jason sets himself up as the opposite of his wife. Though he tries to separate himself from her and to deny the interconnectedness of their lives, he finds himself caught in her story and her words. Their hierarchical relationship is defined and redefined in two scenes from their marriage. Medea's farewell to her children with all its contradiction and rapid shifts is central to the drama and to our understanding of her character. Political aspects, from the terms of power that surround Creon and his daughter to the staging of Medea's speeches and the radicalization of the chorus, are examined in the book.
