Read & Download Æ E-book, or Kindle E-pub à Christa Wolf Christa Wolf à 9 Free read Read Medea Stimmen Own children to her jealous rage In this novel Wolf explodes the myth offering moder. About a year ago I read and loved David Vann s take on the Medea myth Bright Air Black It follows the original story very closely and offers few surprises in terms of plot for those already familiar with the tale but it endeavors and succeeds in giving Medea a narrative voice allowing her to tell her own story Christa Wolf s Medea published 20 years earlier than Bright Air Black is another feminist victory for this narrative but interestingly Wolf s and Vann s interpretations of Medea s character couldn t be different I love them bothVann s is very straightforward Though he at times renders her character sympathetic in a way that s deeply unsettling his Medea is every bit as violent and vindictive as you d expect Wolf approaches the narrative from a different vantage point altogether What if Corinth stood something to gain from Medea being painted as a monster This is the uestion Wolf explores in this politically driven retelling narrated in a series of monologues by Medea Jason Glauce and other individuals in the royal court at CorinthThe first thing that struck me as soon as I finished Medea s first chapter and started reading Jason s was how startlingly different their narrative voices were which I think is such an incredible and impressive feat to accomplish in a book like this which hinges on different characters perspectives telling the same story The other thing that struck me was the mastery and lyricism of Wolf s prose translated beautifully from the German by John Cullen It s possible they sense my unbelief my lack of faith in anything It s possible they can t bear that When I ran over the field where the frenzied women had strewn your dismembered limbs when I ran over that field wailing in the deepening darkness and gathered you up poor broken brother piece by piece bone by bone that s when I stopped believing How could we be meant to come back to this earth in a new form Why should a dead man s limbs scattered over a field make that field fertile Why should the gods who demand from us continual proofs of gratitude and submission let us die in order to send us back to earth again Your death opened my eyes wide Apsyrtus For the first time I found solace in the fact that I don t have to live forever And then I was able to let go of that belief born out of fear to be exact it repelled me I mean that s stunningWhat I love so much about mythological retellings the reason I read the same stories over and over again written by different authors is that each retelling offers something new each author interacts with the original story in a different way That s clear in the stark contrast between Medea and Bright Air Black how one can render Medea as a victim and the other as a villain while both staying in their own way true to the original myth Wolf s retelling is also concerned with the greater political context of Corinth at the time of Medea and Jason s arrival it reflects on how a community is willing to turn a blind eye to its leaders faults which is relevant not only in our current political climate but also to Wolf s own life when you consider that she grew up in the GDR This is what I mean when I talk about the universality of myth and how it belongs to everyone and how individuals from different cultures and different backgrounds can all draw different conclusions from the same story and why Euripides and Seneca s versions of Medea remain so important thousands of years after they were written Wolf s Medea beautifully written thoughtful and resonant is the perfect reminder of this story s relevance

I really don t feel like I have the words to do this justice but it s undoubtedly one of the best books I ever read It s like a huge portrayal of the dynamics of human nature and society the clash of different cultures intrigues oppression and power and in the middle of it this headstrong independent woman with her modern views and the way she uestions everything and by that threatens to bring the entire corrupt system down which is the cause of her downfall in the end She s the stranger the one who doesn t fit in the one who doesn t bow the ideal scapegoat for people to blame for problems actually caused by the higher authorities It goes without saying that all of this is especially fascinating contrasted with the original myth of Medea and how it s completely turned on its head hereI can t get into detail because I would have to write an entire book myself The story is told through multiple perspectives and every character even the ones with no POVs hell if you think about it even the anonymous masses is so intricate and psychologically complex that I feel I could read this book 10 times and still discover new thoughts new implications new perspectives I definitely want to read of Christa Wolf s books now
