MONTEIRO, Marli Piva. Truaer und Melancolie: Medea revisited. Cogito [online]. 2008, vol.9, pp. 60-63. ISSN 1519-9479.

Medea is one of the most intriguing plays ever known. The murder of her own children keeps being a controverse act despite many opinions and explanations. The work is an attempt to read the play through the eyes of a film director and the psychoanalitic theory and question which way is the nearest to come to a comprehension of the tragedy.

Keywords : Depression; Melancholy; Mourning; Loss; Obsessive neurosis; Literature; Tragedy.
