Jason has abandoned Medea; she and her children are threatened with banishment. By marrying Kreon’s daughter, Jason will receive a definitive right of residence and a socially and economically secure position. Deeply hurt by this betrayal and distraught by Jason’s shameless defiance of their bond of marriage and vows of fidelity, Medea plots a cruel revenge. Boundless love turns into boundless hatred: Medea decides to kill their children. What can human beings relinquish, what can be taken away from them, before they lash out with no mercy?
