Medee by Jean Anouilh

Spoiler alert: I will not let you in on the intrigue- on the contrary. I disliked the play so much that I will write about anything, but the work in question. So there will be nothing on this Medee and much talk about other things. A spoiler alert is here to warn you that I disclose an ending or something, but I felt one is in order just the same.
Since I did not enjoy all that much the original Medee, I am not sure what I was expecting from a modern version.

Anouilh was born in Cérisole, a small village on the outskirts of Bordeaux and had Basque ancestry. His father was a tailor and Anouilh maintained that he inherited from him a pride in conscientious craftmanship. He may owe his artistic bent to his mother, a violinist who supplemented the family's meager income by playing summer seasons in the casino orchestra in the nearby seaside resort of Arcac...more

“Amputée!… O soleil, si c’est vrai que je viens de toi, pourquoi m’as-tu faite amputée? Pourquoi m’as-tu faite une fille? Pourquoi ces seins, cette faiblesse, cette plaie ouverte au milieu de moi? N’aurait-il pas été beau le garçon Médée? N’aurait-il pas été fort? Le corps dur comme la pierre, fait pour prendre et partir après, ferme, intact, entier, lui! Ah! il aurait pu venir, alors, Jason, avec ses grandes mains redoutables, il aurait pu tenter de les poser sur moi! Un couteau, chacun dans la sienne -oui!- et le plus fort tue l’autre et s’en va délivré. Pas cette lutte où je ne voulais que toucher les épaules, cette blessure que j’implorais. Femme! Femme! Chienne! Chair faite d’un peu de boue de d’une côte d’homme! Morceau d’homme! Putain!” 0 likes
