Madea is in the process of poisoning Creon and Glauce. She is talking to the Chorus and says “The Children born from me, he will never again see them alive, for the rest of his life, and he will not father a child from the newly-wedded bride, since she, the wretch must die wretchedly through my poison” (802-805).

Initially I didn’t think that she could kill her children but as I drew closer to the end I knew they were done for. I am led to this conclusion by the fact that Medea was versed in the black arts and had killed her brother years before, her blind rage towards Jason, and the grotesque manner in which she killed the princess and her father. After she does finally kill everyone her husband cares for she flies off into the sunset on a chariot and lives her life unhappily ever after. After reading the play I still didn’t fully understand Medea’s motivator for killing her children. Before she put her plot into motion she had skillfully manipulated Aegeus into granting her asylum.
