The paper is focused on the communicative strategies that Seneca’s Medea adopts, especially during the interactions with Creo and Iason, in order to overcome the condition of asymmetry and inferiority in which she "nds herself at the play’s beginning, and to overturn the structure of the relationship. In particular, the study aims at highlighting the role played in this communicative process by supplication, which signals its fundamental articulations by means of a series of signi"cative recurrences, as well as at analyzing the peculiar way in which the protagonist employs this form of communication, making it estranged and paradoxical. The manifestations of anger in their relationship with supplication are also taken into consideration, as well as other kinds of gestures, such as embraces and kisses to the sons, which all contribute to the construction of the analogic universe of furor.

Abstract

The paper is focused on the communicative strategies that Seneca’s Medea adopts, especially during the interactions with Creo and Iason, in order to overcome the condition of asymmetry and inferiority in which she "nds herself at the play’s beginning, and to overturn the structure of the relationship. In particular, the study aims at highlighting the role played in this communicative process by supplication, which signals its fundamental articulations by means of a series of signi"cative recurrences, as well as at analyzing the peculiar way in which the protagonist employs this form of communication, making it estranged and paradoxical. The manifestations of anger in their relationship with supplication are also taken into consideration, as well as other kinds of gestures, such as embraces and kisses to the sons, which all contribute to the construction of the analogic universe of furor.
