About the Author

Euripides was born in Attica, Greece probably in 480 B.C. He was the youngest of the three principal fifth-century tragic poets. In his youth he cultivated gymnastic pursuits and studied philosophy and rhetoric. Soon after he received recognition for a play that he had written, Euripides left mostrar mais Athens for the court of Archelaus, king of Macedonia. Fragments of about fifty-five plays survive. Among his best-known plays are Alcestis, Medea and Philoctetes, Electra, Iphigenia in Tauris, The Trojan Women, and Iphigenia in Aulis Iphigenia. He died in Athens in 406 B.C.

Thoroughly Modern Medea
Review of the Oberon Classics paperback edition (April 16, 2016) adapted by Rachel Cusk from the Ancient Greek language original (432 BC).

Jason: Look, you should be trying to find someone yourself. You're still an attractive woman.
Medea: Still?
Jason: For your age, yes. You should look on the internet. That's how everyone does it these days.
[his phone pings and he reads it then texts a reply.]
How's the writing going?


Rachel Cusk's 2015 Medea is merged with the (currently) 990 editions of Euripides' play, but it is nothing at all like most of those translations and adaptations from the ancient Greek. Cusk's lead character is a modern day screenwriter, her Jason is an actor who had a breakthrough role thanks to a script by Medea, Jason is divorcing Medea in order to marry a younger woman from a rich family to further promote his career, the Aegeus is a film producer who will arrange a future production of a Medea script, Medea's new movie is a tell-all which will destroy Jason and bring about the downfall of his new family. Medea does not directly murder anyone.

It is all obviously inspired by Euripides original plot, but the text and situations are all modern day and the fates of the characters are not as in the original. 5 gossipy women are the chorus, they barely interact with Medea. There are 2 somewhat bratty boy children. Glauke (the younger woman) gets a rash from the jewellery which Medea passes on to Jason, the Nurse and the Tutor comment on the action as before. A house cleaner character is introduced to the plot as a completely new commentator on the action. The messenger character describes the off-stage action as before.

This was a thoroughly interesting interpretation of the play in which much of the suspense was the anticipation of how is Cusk going to modernize the situation without the horror of the original's ending. Really the most horrific aspect was the promotional material for the Almeida Theatre production. This was somewhat hidden in the poster above, but had a grotesque reveal in the cover of the 2nd print edition:

Theatre Reviews
Magic in its Modernism: Rachel Cusk's Marvellous New Medea for the Almeida Greeks season by Charlotte Valori at Operissima, October 1, 2015.

Trivia and Links
There is an excerpted scene from the Almeida Theatre production with Kate Fleetwood as Medea which you can see here. Starting with the talk of a bicycle, you'll realize that this version of the play is set in modern times.

Rachel Cusk wrote an opinion piece for The Telegraph at the time of her version's staging. It is behind a paywall but you can see the headline and the beginning at Rachel Cusk: 'Medea is not psychotic, she's a realist.', September 30, 2015.

Machemer & Collier's Medea
Review of the Oxford University Press (OUP) paperback (August 10, 2006) translated by Georgia Ann Machemer and set in verse by Michael Collier from the Ancient Greek original Μήδεια (431 BC).

I went down the Medea rabbit hole after reading Laura Alcoba's Through the Forest (2024), a recent translation of a French language non-fiction novel which also involves maternal filicide and in which an extended story of the Medea mythology is included. So I then picked up Liz Lochhead's 2023 updated Scots adaptation Medea and a basic version in Dover Thrift Editions' Medea (which uses Rex Warner's 1944 translation). I looked for a scholarly translation and Collier/Machemer's version in OUP's Greek Tragedy in New Translations series looked ideal.

The OUP edition provides a very extensive Introduction (29 pages), Text Notes (26 pages) & Glossary (6 pages) in addition to the play translation. All of these provide for excellent background and context for the play's original performance and reception in Ancient Athens. That included the Medea mythology providing a historical basis for the enmity between Corinth (past of the Spartan confederacy) and Athens in the then Peloponnesian War. The shock of various other elements in the play provides a basis for understanding why Euripides came in 3rd (i.e. last) in that year's theatre competition.

I also went down a further rabbit hole in the investigation of the Deus ex machina appearance of Medea at the conclusion of the play. Normally it would only be Gods lowered from the crane machine in order to provide a last-minute miraculous solution to what would otherwise be an insolvable plot. Medea's appearance in a chariot loaded with dead bodies and pulled by dragons makes it seem more likely that she was instead simply on the roof of the skene (the building at the back of the stage in Ancient Greek theatre).

I'm not done with Medea yet, as Rachel Cusk's adaptation Medea (2015) also looks intriguing, even based on the cover alone.

A Basic Medea
Review of the Dover Thrift Editions paperback (2022) of the Dover Publications original (1993) of the John Lane: The Bodley Head hardcover The Medea of Euripides (1944) translated by Rex Warner from the Ancient Greek language original Μήδεια (431 BC).

I read this 1944 translation in parallel with reading Liz Lochhead's adaptation Medea (2023) for the National Theatre of Scotland. I wanted to have a basic comparison in order to see how far Lochhead differed from the original. The Dover Thrift edition was ideal for that purpose, but it provided no background information and only a very few brief footnotes to explain some references in the text.

I'm also planning on reading a more recent translation in a more scholarly edition. The Oxford University Press's Medea (2006) with a translation by Michael Collier and Georgia Ann Machemer looks like an ideal candidate for that.

A Fierce Modern Medea (with a Scots inflection)
Review of the Nick Hern Books paperback (2023) adapted from the Ancient Greek original by Euripides (431 BCE).

Medea: flesh of my flesh revenge
Jason: I must have been mad was mad for you
I did not know you
I know you now!
Medea: tigress? fury? harpy? witch? she-wolf?
monster? yes I am
for I have torn out your heart and devoured it
Jason: your pain is just as bad as mine
Medea: wrong for I have your pain to comfort me


I'm quoting the above excerpt to give an example of why this is an adaptation rather than a translation of the Euripides original. A sample of the parallel dialogue in a standard translation (Rex Warner in 1944, reprinted in the Dover Thrift Editions series) reads as:

Jason: You feel the pain yourself. You share in my sorrow.
Medea: Yes, and my grief is gain when you cannot mock it.


Liz Lochhead makes other significant changes to the text, even though most of it still has parallels in the Euripides play. The King of Athens is dropped as a character (along with his scene) and instead Glauke, the princess of Corinth, is brought in to have her own confrontation with Medea. The most interesting change is to have some of the characters perform their dialogue in a Scots-inflected English, signifying that they are natives of Corinth. Medea and Jason speaking in regular English are outsiders who have taken refuge in Corinth after having escaped into exile.

This was a fierce and modern Medea which is still all the more horrifying for the revenge and maternal filicide murder plot at its heart. Lochhead's Medea is not portrayed as a supernatural sorceress though, but rather as a human being with advanced skills in poisoning. There is no deus ex machina chariot in the sky for her at the end.

I read Liz Lochhead's Medea after reading the retelling of the Medea mythology in Laura Alcoba's Through the Forest (2024). The Lochhead struck me as likely to be the most radical contemporary retelling. When I searched Goodreads, it seemed as if there is a Medea zeitgeist in the offing. There are two recent novelizations: Eilish Quin's Medea (February 13, 2024) and Rosie Hewlett's Medea (March 21, 2024). In Toronto, the Canadian Opera Company will perform Cherubini's opera in May 2024. Who am I to ignore the signs 🤔? Thus, a Medea deep-dive begins.
