    TV Land - Concordia Universitys Medea

    Euripedes' Medea brings to mind jealousy, passion, murder and infanticide, but not necessarily the 1950s. In the popular imagination, the 1950s was the peaceable decade, a time when no man ever dreamed of going behind his wife's back and no mother c...
