Did the great ancient myth about the Golden Fleece and the Argonauts have to have such a cruel crime as its consequence?
Did Medea have to kill her children as an act of revenge against her husband, Jason?
Who is to blame for all that?
Medea, hurt and overwhelmed by vanity, or the insanely ambitious Jason?
Why do the two of them want to go on living?
Are they just monsters, or do we feel compassion for them in their pain?
Why did no one prevent this crime?
Why are we dealing with this crime today?
Why are many people inspired by Medea?
Is Medea a woman?
