Do we let ourselves go back to the ancients or do they catch up with us No matter A great deal of fan fiction is written to the tune of reacting to earlier material bloated with populist credibility with What the fuck is this shit Sometimes it ll be the politer shade of Shakespeare smoothing out and filling in the gaps of his stolen histories with nary a trace of his authorial human self Other times an I Tituba Black Witch of Salem will rise out of the words of a Maryse Cond and run roughshod over evidence and genre and reality in eual measure Milton preferred shitting on everything and trusting that his prose would save him which it and his pasty skin and cisnormative dick did in the long run canonically speaking but that doesn t make his Paradise Lost any fundamentally original The most emphatic however would have to be Wolf not Woolf although I adore her works as well and her kind Ancient Greeks were chosen by Europeans as heralded ancestors for reasons than the vainglorious and nonsensical theory that is race and to an Anglocentric reader such as I this is easily explained by when at a particular point in history Englanders could sing The ueen is dead Long live the King Do you know what they re looking for Medea she asked me They re looking for a woman who ll tell them that they re not guilty of anything that the gods whom they worship by chance compel them in their undertakings That the track of blood they leave behind is proper to their male nature as the gods have determined it There are a lot of people who believe the world is only five hundred years old They wave away the rampant normalization of the white male as the norm as a biological destiny throw tantrums when you point out how said biology breaks down the white and the male and then some then nod solemnly to themselves when you decide you re better off talking to people whose nightmares are of oppression and fear rather than immigrants and increased taxes Very few of that sort would pick up a book like this but you can rest assured they were too busy being threatened by what it had to say to do the customary thing of clinging tightly to objectivity in the fact of castration and the other breeds of damage the maenads can wreak Look the woman who tore men to pieces were just a facet of the times and the way in which the narrative uncritically portrays this is just the author embodying the mindset of the character as all authors rightfully should If you re threatened by this past fiction mirroring certain aspects of your modern day reality sucks for you For the first time I found solace in the fact that I don t have to live forever It s not as triumphant as that of course The point of tragedies isn t to solve them The only way that happens is when the tragedy no longer strikes a common chord and what with the word common becoming ever increasingly complicated by the fact that common once meant top dog tragedy is accordingly becoming increasingly complicated by a lack of both the refrigerators and the bodies of Others with which to fill them Medea has her share but in Wolf s take the boy may have been disemboweled in an incestuous way but not in the way you think you know The daughter may have disappeared but not for the power of any who end the narrative in exile The wife may have been driven to her doom but there is a vast different between accursed and escape The children are gone long live the children but there is than one species in the animal kingdom wherein the father eats their youngI didn t like this nearly as much as The uest for Christa T but when one is comparing absolute favorites to mortal works one has to cut a bit of slack It was mainly due to the fact that when it comes to historical fictioning however mythological fellow favorite Memoirs of Hadrian is the yardstick Multiple points of view made for a multifarious trip but if a tragedy doesn t wrench the heart out of me it means that the delivery showed its narratological seams too often to make for a truly effective downfall The value of this ultimately lies in my observations of how others react to it for race as well as gender is a concern codified as they are now the traits of woolly hair and brown skin I am grateful for Wolf for making this so explicit that even translation cannot be hid behind as last resort for it will make dealing with the audience of a future miniseries adaptation that much easier No I say You are not being faithful to the author s intent by following the customary route of blonde blue and white white white You just hate Incidentally she then asked me I don t know why whether human sacrifice existed among us in the lands of the setting sun Of course not I said indignantly she tilted her head to one side and looked at me searchingly No she said Not even when the going is toughest I still answered no and she said thoughtfully Well Maybe that s really true

Summary Á PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Christa Wolf Christa Wolf ✓ 6 Free download Free download Medea Stimmen ñ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Medea is among the most notorious women in Greek tragedy a woman who sacrifices her. I am Medea the sorceress if you all will have it so The wild woman the foreigner You shall not belittle me I ve always declared to the dismay of many that if I ever had a daughter I would name her Medea My fascination with this larger than life woman has been undiminished ever since I started learning about the ancient endless eternal myths of my country from a relatively young age Call me weird but dark controversial figures have accompanied me for the most part of my reading life It also helped that my mother had the knowledge and the patience to explain to me how myths were made in a society of men by men and for men World Culture is loaded with mythical women who have been vilified as an excuse for the stupidity disloyalty and absolute lack of courage on men s part Eve Medea Helen of Troy Pandora Circe Phaedra JocastaThe list goes on and onA woman can either be a whore or a saint Too bad for the willing ones because the first team makes for the best of stories In this extraordinary moment in European Literature Christa Wolf reimagines Medea s story focusing on her last days in Corinth and culminating with the death of her sons The result is a haunting raw elegy of broken promises and thwarted dreams They ve made what they need out of each of us Out of you the Hero and out of me the Wicked Witch They ve driven us apart like that People create myths to explain passions hopes wishes and inclinations They need the heroes the ones who battle against gods and men as they need the scapegoats responsible when the hero goes astray What happens when the Hero succeeds only after the Scapegoat has provided the necessary help Well noone cares about this tiny detail all that matters is that the job is done However when everything crumbles because of disloyalty and ambition it s time for the Scapegoat to be driven out Medea is either a healer or a bringer of curse This is what the mob the ever changing witless crowd believes She is the Other the Foreigner the one who threatens the established order with her powers and invocations Jason is blaming his obsession and lust to Medea always unwilling to admit what a phony hero he is He doesn t care any the glory is his and it s time to find a younger docile wife who would worship him without uestions and thoughts of her own Is it a comfort to think that people everywhere fall short of the agreements they have made I feel that this uote expresses the essence of our times extremely accurately In the outstanding introduction Margaret Atwood refers to the political and social background and the status uo that shaped Wolf s work Coming from the troubled land of former East Germany it is clear that her political and social views influenced her writing How could it have been otherwise Medea was written in 1996 six years after the reunification of Germany and while reading one can feel a deep sense of bitterness and intense distrust towards the institution of the state and the authorities Knowing the political context Medea becomes much than a retelling of an ancient legend The writing and the characterization are uniue The portrait of Medea is moving sad hauntingThere are uite a few exceptional descriptions of the city of Corinth and the nightly scenes are eerie foreboding Don t expect any infanticides gore violence or sex and the end will surprise you I will not compare Wolf s work to Euripides or Seneca Each one is a different beast all masterpieces in their own right However I know which one I prefer Wolf s esoteric haunting solemn cry for the truth and for a world that turned out uite different than promised For the innocent victims of the frustrations of the mighty the demonization of the weakest links Up there in the dark night blue sky like a slightly tilted silver of peel the crescent moon was still swimming though on the wane reminding me of my waning years my Colchian moon endowed with the power to pull the sun up over the edge of the earth every morning My reviews can also be found on
