    " This isn't the translation I read, but I did not like this play/poem. The translation I read was awful, alternating between forced diction and awkward colloquialisms. Plus Medea is just a huge asshat, and even though you're supposed to sympathize with her I just couldn't bring myself to do it. "

    " My favorite of the classics. I love it, deus-ex-machina and all. It's important to celebrate Euripides, who gave us psychological depth of character well before his time, and was summarily shunned for it. "

    " I let Medea be the angel of revenge while I live my grief quietly. Beware of scorned women. "

    " I just didn't enjoy it, not my cup of tea at all, not a fan of Greek tragedies. "

    " I love how you can relate to Medea's pain...she's depicted as such an evil woman, but almost rightfully so. Good story. "

    " Interesting one of the only greek plays that did not have incest "

    " "Oedipus" is the standard by which I compare all other greek plays. This one was but okay for me. The ending really was trippy: she murdered her kids...for their own good! That's some logic, for ya. "

    " Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

    The amazing Greek tragedy about Medea. Scorned by her husband she uses the powers of witchcraft to exact her revenge. "
