Medea, an ancient Greek tragedy written by Euripides, is based upon the myth of Jason and Medea. The plot centers on the actions of Medea, a former princess of the “barbarian” kingdom of Colchis, and the wife of Jason; she finds her position in the Greek world threat-ened as Jason leaves her for a Greek princess of Corinth. Medea seeks vengeance on Jasonby taking away everything and everyone close to him.
