Hi,

In Seneca's version of Medea, does Medea kill Creusa, Creon's daughter?

I know she does this in Euripides version but I'm just wondering about the Senecan version of the play.

Yes she does, both have the same basic plot line but vary in characterization

Response: Her playing the same basic plot line is conjecture. Debunked.

Well it's not is it? They are both based on the same myth with the same basic plot line. Medea is angry/upset with Jason, kills Creusa/Glauce and indirectly Creon for revenge and then murders her children.

OP this page might be of use to you - http://www.ancient-literature.com/ro...eca_medea.html

It had a good summary of Seneca's version and then some analysis of the differences between his and Euripides
