Kelly H. (Maybedog) (maybedog) I read a book many years ago that was a retelling of the story of Medea from her perspective. It started when she was a teenager and followed her through her life. It depicted the death of her children as being a set up. Any idea what it was called?

Terence (spocksbro) I don't know if either of these are what you're thinking of but I've read two reinterpretations of the Medea story:

Christa Wolf's Medea and
John Gardner's Jason & Medeia

Kelly H. (Maybedog) (maybedog) They're not but the Christa Wolf one in particular sounds really interesting. Thank you!

Kelly H. (Maybedog) (maybedog) THAT'S IT!!! Thank you Delanie, thank you!!!
