Medea by Euripides
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Yes, I'm giving this classic Greek play a 5 stars because it's classic, but DAMN. This is the classic trophy wife who's constantly misused by the men in her wife then laying down the LAW... all for the sake of revenge. Sweet, sweet revenge.
But to think that she would go so far as to kill her own children just for the sake of it... is chilling in the extreme.
The furies definitely rode this woman.
Simple, classic, and clear.
Oh, and you men, if you get that freaking fleece, use your head. Sheesh.
