One of the most well-known tragedies plays by Euripides, “Medea”, 431 BC; with the assert that both characters have powerfully different takes on the difference at hand between them and the driving force of the play (p.14-16). It begins with Medea heartsick and feels that Jason has “no trace of manhood”(14) as he betrayed her and their sons by marrying the King’s daughter; on the other hand, the experience feels as though he has done nothing wrong and is only doing what is best for his family’s well-being. Medea is full of anger and spite when this argument starts and Jason comes in, for the first time in the play, seeming, if anything at all, frustrated with Medea for getting her and his sons exiled from Helias; then, both of them proceed to go make a long presentation of their argument and standpoint of the situation to one another. Each of them appeals to the other, as well as the audience, in their way in an attempt to make the other concede, and this difference can be made evident through comparing and contrasting both tones of their arguments.
