“Earth, Speak to Me, Grass, Speak to Me!” Trauma, Tragedy, and the Crash Between Cultures in Medea

Susanna Federici-Nebbiosi, Ph.D.

In the Euripides tragedy, Medea was the Princess of Colchis. After having helped Jason—who traveled from Greece—to acquire the Golden Fleece, she married him and followed him to Corinth in Greece. They had two children, but Jason soon turned his interest to the daughter of the king of Corinth and married her. Medea in revenge of Jason's betrayal murdered their children.

In this paper, I propose an interdisciplinary approach that can help to contextualize the Medea tragedy. I consider Medea as the mythical character that personifies narcissistic rage within the context of cultural crash. I suggest that this tragedy can be used metaphorically to formulate clinical hypotheses on trauma and dissociation in the context of the difference between cultures, a difference that becomes an insurmountable barrier of incomprehension.
