This paper compares the Goddess Medea to the tri-figured Mother/Goddess. The virgin, mother, and icon images of the Mother Goddess all relate to Medea in different ways throughout the play. The paper includes in-text citations with bibliography.

From the Paper:

"The Mother/Goddess is a manifestation of the overwhelming feminine attributes of the world in the first religions. The religions portray the power of the Mother/ Goddess to be both the creator and the destroyer of life. She also represents time, the creator of fate and provider of all destinies. The Mother/ Goddess is all knowing and spiritually represents wholeness and one complete cycle. The Mother/ Goddess represents the irrational aspects of life and nature with intuitive wisdom. Medea exemplifies all of these points as she learns of Jason's deception. She then shows each aspect of the Mother/ Goddess as she sets her plan to murder the princess, the king and her children to destroy the life Jason has made for himself with his new bride.
