Medea plays a main role in the myth of Jason and the Argonauts ('Argonautica' by Apollonios of Rhodes). She is a sorceress and priestess of the goddess Hecate. She is known as a jealous and ruthless person. Personally I prefer the Christa Wolf retelling ('Medea. Voices') in which Medea is a fiercely independent woman and a victim of a patriarchal political structure and xenophobia.

Roberto De Mitri Medea's eyes are the full expression of disbelief and terror. perhaps she has realized what destiny her hands are going to accomplish and remains herself petrified by this terrible fate?

Jos Letschert Tatiana, thanks for your reading. Yes, in the classical version of Medea she is a 'killer-woman'. That is why I appreciate the 'Wolf-interpretation' so much in which becomes clear how much she has been a victim of her time.

Jos Letschert avatar
Jos Letschert Roberto, yes indeed. In the classical version you are right. The passionated woman is victim of het fate. Personnaly I am very convinced of the contemporary retelling or interpretation by the German author Christa Wolf who turns the whole story into a quite different perspective. Medea isn't any longer that fatla woman. She is a victim of a patriarchale political structure in which she is condamned. In het new situation she also becomes a victim of xenofobia. It brings the Medea-myth very close to our times.

Joelle Chmiel avatar
Joelle Chmiel What an expressive work... I personally agree with Paolo. Within all the multiple disturbing feelings expressed by her face and through her eyes (with once again an amazing deep, dark and at the same time bright shining blue) I guess that for me sadness in the end ist the most preeminent emotion. Maybe as the inevitable result or remain of the conglomerated feelings and past emotions...
