    One thought on “Medea”

    1. X post from Dreamwidth.Review copy provided by Netgalley The galley is copyrighted 2013, but says a version was published in 1997 Content note Some discussion of rape, murder, and mutilation.This is a hard book to review because my reaction to it is basically, Eh It s not a terrible book, it s not a great book, it s not off putting, it s not absorbing Typically, my rule for deciding if I want to watch a TV show is, Is this fun than reading a book For this book, I would much rather have been wat [...]

    2. Kylie Medea is a beautifully crafted, heart wrenching tale of adventure, love, heroes, gods and betrayal The woman who history has painted as a monster, comes to life in these pages with absolute clarity so that when the real truth is finally revealed, we ache for her An absolute must read for lovers of history and greek mythology in particular, but for anyone who enjoys a damn good story.

    3. We all know, or think we do, the story of Medea, Jason, and the Golden Fleece Ms Greenwood s MEDEA isn t the Medea we know from Euripides Narrated by Medea and Nauplios, Jason s friend and fellow Argonaut, we re given both the male and female POV making it a intimate and personal tale.Settle in and prepare to be swept away Ms Greenwood has managed something wondrous with MEDEA She s taken a falsely maligned figure and given her a voice that speaks clearly across the centuries Ms Greenwood s Med [...]

    4. Greenwood offers up a new theory to the popular yet unproven myth speculation that Medea killed her own children the speculation was helped along by Euripides written version of the events Given the remnants of hearsay and evidence read through the frame of reference handed down by Euripides, it is possible that the maternal filicide supposedly comitted by Medea never happened.I would also like to take a moment to say what an utter self loving and treacherous male Jason was His golden reputation [...]

    5. At first I was like It s the Mists of Avalon of the Greek pantheon Then I got to where, early on in the story actually, Greenwood just took the Cerridwen s Cauldron Birth of Merlin myth from Welsh mythology and cast the Witch goddess as Hekate under the name of Cerlithe which I ve never heard before This really irks me There was no universal paganism in ancient times You cannot just take a myth from one culture and swap the names with names of deities from the culture you re writing about It s i [...]

    6. Very creative retelling of the Medea Jason myth from the viewpoints of Medea and Nauplios, a fisherman s son, companion of Jason from childhood, an Argonaut and Medea s faithful friend through the years Medea, Princess of Colchis, priestess of the goddess Hekate, and sorceress healer helps Jason steal the Golden Fleece and the bones of Phrixos, who had ridden and flown on a golden ram As the author tells the story, Medea, when Jason wished to cast her aside for a younger woman, flees with Naupli [...]

    7. Gave up on this The pseudo ancient style it s written in is not worth slogging through Also much too long So many better ways to spend my timeFree digital ARC from Netgalley.

    8. It s been a awhile since I read a book that made me breathless Kerry Greenwood creates a intense world through the POVs of Medea and Nauplios As a sucker for strong independent female protagonists, I was in awe and a little bit terrified of Medea At first I was confused why we were getting the POV of Nauplios, a secondary character, but it all tied together beautifully in the end Before reading this, make sure you brush up on your ancient Greek history and be prepared to run into multiple compli [...]

    9. Medea was an immense adventure It has been a while since I picked up a lengthy book, and again this was an overdue novel to delve into Such is the story of my reading life lately.Really enjoyed Medea s character She was a great contradiction from page to page Strong but made weak by custom and her embittered teacher, and it was very clear that she had so much potential and strength than she allowed herself A consequence of the times she was born into Yet she has power in her own rights, which b [...]

    10. Medea has been known to us through Greek playwrights, most famously Euripides, for killing her children after her husband Jason of the Argonauts have abandoned her for another woman However, in Kerry Greenwood s version of Medea, Medea has given her voice to speak and narrates her version of what happened This Medea does not kill her own children Rather it was the city of Corinth who killed them, and thus bestowed a great curse over the city Medea is a princess of Colchis and a priestess of Heka [...]

    11. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC through NetGalley, so my read may be slightly different than yoursME SPOILERS BELOW, SO USE CAUTION, especially since I can t figure out how to hide that part which IS a spoiler.The book is told from the view point of two characters, a practice I generally don t care for, but I thought it worked well this time Medea, of course is one of the viewpoints, and Nauplios is the other.I found the parts with Medea, for the most part, very dark and depressing I m not [...]

    12. Medea is the first of three Delphic Women novels to be published in the US by Australian author Kerry Greenwood It tells the story of Medea from the legend of Jason and the Argonauts The version that everyone knows involves Medea, as a witch, helping Jason to steal the Golden Fleece in return for marrying her The story goes that some years later, when he attempts to put her aside, she not only kills his potential bride, but also the children that she d borne him.Medea tells a different story She [...]

    13. This might just be the most impressed I ve ever been with Kerry Greenwood s writing Her stuff, I find, is usually pretty fun and easy to read but the prose behind isn t something I d write a paragraph in a letter about Medea, though Actually awesome.Being mostly unaware of Medea in history and mythology I read Euripides play two years ago, but remember it only a little , I can t comment on how authentic Greenwood s treatment of the myth is, or whether her depiction of places and people is close [...]

    14. Kerry Greenwood is an interesting writer I discovered her mysteries when I picked up the first Phryne Fisher book several years ago this series set in Australia in 1928 is wonderful, with great characters, plots and wonderful attention to historical details and atmosphere Medea is not a mystery but a wonderful retelling of a fascinating story from a different point of view, the Medea in this novel is a strong, complex, woman who is living in a time when intelligent woman where not appreciated, t [...]

    15. One things that s always hard with these old stories is that the author and the reader sees it through modern eyes By modern interpretation, Jason was a selfish and petulant man child and Medea was a much wronged heroine Of course, Jason does get punished in the original story It s nice to know that the original telling, an angry mob from the city of Carthage killed their children, for which they were punished Euripides was paid to absolve Carthage and place the blame on the sorceress Medea Even [...]

    16. I absolutely loved this one I have since read the other two in the series because I liked this one so much I went out and ordered the whole trilogy the Delphic Women series from This is far and away my favorite A completely different look at a personage we think we know all about, as well as a very clear picture of the position of women in these different cultures positions which varied widely even within the same time frame, as they still do today Highly recommend this series.

    17. Medea got a very slow start from me, somemhow I just couldn t get into the story And then one day I started again, and could hardly put it down.The character Medea is, of course, a very well known name in history I didn t know much about her or Jason and the others Now I m glad I didn t give up the story is fascinating, well researched and beautifully written.Now I want to read the other two Delphic Woman Novels too

    18. Two strikes in the first chapter we are told that the little girl was carried naked into the goddess s cave, then a page later, that she wipes her tears on the edge of her tunic I hate stuff like that Then we are told that Herakles is helped by Hera, who dotes on him Huh Hera is the implacable enemy of Herakles, not his doting stepmother I think I m going to pass on this one, though I really wanted to like it Those kinds of sloppy mistakes make me mistrustful of the rest of the book.

    19. A version of the Medea story that involves her NOT killing her children Really Apparently actually based in the historical records Well done retellings of the classics are always interestingunfortunately, this isn t well done, though it got a bit better as it progressed It was uneven and the alternating narrative between Medea and Jason s companion Nauplios who falls in love with her from first sight didn t work at all.

    20. Incredible book I had no idea what a treasure it was this author took ancient greek legends and myths and wove them into an incredible life story It had drama, mystery, love, sadness great journeys and a great heroine

    21. I ve always been fascinated by Medea, and Greenwood offers a fresh retelling I was afraid that Greenwood would be too one sidedly feminist men bad, women good , and it seems to start off that way, but she does manage to focus on the story than the polemics.

    22. I liked this a lot It was sympathetic retelling of Medea that really brought the characters to life for me If you re interested in Medea s story, I recommend this.

    23. Interesting retelling although the writing seemed somewhat stilted trying for an ancient Greek rhythm perhaps

    24. A sympathetic re telling of Medea, wife of Jason, who supposed killed their 3 children It takes place in ancient Greece and is well worth reading.

    25. I really enjoyed this tale of Medea While heartbreaking, I enjoyed Kerry s twist and interpretation of the source material.
