    One thought on “Medea”

    1. I hear the translation you read is key to your enjoyment. And it's still difficult to enjoy! I mean, infanticide??? Really? I guess it's the ultimate in Greek tragedies Still and yet, a great story about people and the suffering they perpetrate.

    2. A beautifully poetic translation of Medea. When comparing this to other translations in my literature group, I realized how fortunate I was to have stumbled upon this one. Robinson Jeffers transforms the typically dry text of this classic play into a chilling and heart-stirring read.

    3. well one of the big lessons in this book is hell has no fury like a woman scorn. had to read this for AP lit next school year not a bad read at all
