Abstract

Euripides innovated by using a Medea of heroic mentality, filicidal, but with divine support, to discuss the paradoxes of Greek womanhood, dependent on a male nómos. Helia follows him, discussing female love in an oppressive setting, and exposes the divine ichor as the cause of Medea’s anti-physis madness.
