MEDEA! This week, on another special October episode... We delve into the character most famous for being downright insane. The story of Medea, and the play by Euripides, is one of the most bloody and violent of all of Greek mythology. It's also one of the few that treat women as humans. What a coincidence. Thanks to the Penguin Classics edition of Medea, by Euripides and translated by John Davie. A general mythology warning: far too many Greek myths involve assaulting women. I'm sorry, that's just the way it is. Given it's fiction, and typically involves gods and/or monsters, I'm not as deferential as I would be were I referencing the real thing.
