Example text

We should not, however, ignore the visual arts of the ancient world. In a society where literacy was limited, visual storytelling could be as important as the verbal. While at times we can see how visual art, such as vase painting, could be a response to a literary form, the traditions are often closer to the fluid material of oral narrative which we noted at the start of this chapter, and can indicate different ways of telling the story. Interpreting visual images requires different skills and approaches to those we use when handling literary texts.

By the time Medea makes an appearance in art or literature she already has a well-formed body of material around her, linked to the story of Jason and the Argonauts. As noted in the previous chapter, our first references to her come in the seventh-century epic Nostoi, and in Hesiod’s Theogony, referring to her marriage to Jason, and vases from the same period indicate the story of the death of Pelias. Given the wide range of episodes, and the geographical distance which these stories encompass, some critics, such as Lesky (1931, 48–50), have argued that there were originally two figures called Medea, whose stories became conflated.

In a society where literacy was limited, visual storytelling could be as important as the verbal. While at times we can see how visual art, such as vase painting, could be a response to a literary form, the traditions are often closer to the fluid material of oral narrative which we noted at the start of this chapter, and can indicate different ways of telling the story. Interpreting visual images requires different skills and approaches to those we use when handling literary texts. The illustrations in this volume, therefore, are limited to allow discussion of each image rather than providing lots of pictures which appear to reinforce the written narrative.
