Aspectes de la Medea de Sèneca

Joan Josep Mussarra Roca


Senecas Medea has been repeatedly discussed as a tragedy that shows through mythos a representation of ira based upon the moral discourse of Seneca himself.

The action of the Argonauts can be interpreted simultaneously as a dissolving gesture which brings about contemporary, non-Golden Age world, and as a manifestation of uirtus which also has a place in Senecan moral project.
