Eurpies play’s central future plot. Medea is “utterly

Eurpies portrays medea as an individual with an extreme eagerness for revenge which is reflected through her endeavour of being betrayed by her love “jason”. Her dominant and ruthless nature cause her to take her own form of justice in which her actions are highly contriversial .This results in Medea taking relentless action, murdering jason’s new lover, her father and even sacrificing medeas own children for the satisfaction seeing jason in misery. For these reasons medeas own choices to partake in such intense revenge cannot be ¬†reasonably accounted for.Jason’s rejection and betrayal of Medea is the main catalyst in her desire to seek revenge and take justice into her own hands. Euripides begins the play with the Nurse informing the audience of the current dispute between Medea and Jason, whilst foreshadowing most of the play’s central future plot. Medea is “utterly destroyed” and has nothing to live for. Jason’s “cruel betrayal” has left Medea worthless and her “heart unhinged in her love for jason”. This downplay of jason the chorus and Nurse continuously undertake encourages the audience to feel sympathetic towards Medea and understand her need for justice and the actions she takes due to being obligated to take “exact revenge from jason”. Medea ultimately has the right to seek some form of justice due to being “betrayed” by jason and “wrongly unprovoked”.Although it is true Medea may be entitled to some form of justice, majority of the characters in the play such as the nurse,jason and the chorus repeatedly condemn her perception of justice. The horrific intentions medea has (such as planning to kill Glauce, Creon and her two children) against seemingly innocent characters would most likely evoke a sense of outrage in the audience, this reaction potentially being heighted by the fearful responses of the Nurse and Chorus’s. Euripides initially creates a sense of sympathy for medea but this quickly fades into a perception of a maniacal savage who shouldn’t be one to create her own form of justice. The Chorus and Nurse initially acknowledge Medea’s ‘seas of woes’ but then later when hearing Medeas true intentions, they criticise her ‘selfish’ morality greatly mentioning that Creon, Glauce and her two children have ‘no involvement in jason’s wrongdoing’ and shouldn’t have to pay the price of Medea’s violent natureAstonighly, though, Medea seems to be completely content and satisfied with her involvement of the “unholiest of deeds”, despite her actions being heavily criticized. Medea’s intense manipulation allows her to fulfill her satisfaction through murdering the Princess, Creon and even her two children. Medea even acknowledges that her doings will haunt her for the rest of her life but is quickly to dismiss this through the pure thought of “stinging” Jason’s heart ¬†due to all her ” sorrows being well repaid if you cannot laugh at me” ( talking to jason). Medea has proven herself to be a tragic hero and an individual who shouldn’t take justice into her own hands yet she feels justified with her crimes saying that her “fury against Jason is stronger than her counsels of softness” shortly before ditching jason to deeply regret his abdondment while she flees on a chariot
