Heiner Müller i Medea

Montserrat Camps Gaset


The character of Medea, a woman and a barbarian, symbolizes the cry for the
empowerment of women, but also the desolation of death and of wars devastation.
In Müllers work there is an inversion of the male and female roles;
death is everywhere, both in Medeas acts and in the whole scene of death
and destruction caused by human beings on the planet. The recourse to the
Greek myth underlines the universal dimension of this conflict, as well as its
tragic, hopeless nature. In an annex to the paper, the German text and the
Catalan translation of Müllers work is published.
