ALMEIDA, Milton José de. Euripedes and Pasolini: the mythical rural world and the objective urban world: education and passages. Pro-Posições [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.1, pp. 99-112. ISSN 0103-7307. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-73072012000100007.
This article discusses the transition from the ancient peasant and mythical world to the objective and practical world of the city in its dimensions of violence and social disruption, as found in Euripides' tragedy Medea and in the movie of the same name by Pier Paolo Pasolini. This passage is represented by the social alliance of the characters Medea and Jason and the breaking of this alliance. The education of the characters, the economic power, the expectancy of poverty and family breakdown drive the interests and the violence of affective and social relationships.
