You could have stayed here, in this land, in this house Had you submitted quietly to your ruler’s plans. Instead you ranted like a lunatic…so now you are banished. To me your tirade means not a thing: Go on declaiming what a monster Jason is. But when it comes to royalty, the princess and the king, Count yourself lucky to only be banished. I have tried continuously to calm things down; For I should like you to remain. But you, madam, Obstinate in folly, have reviled our royalty, And so you are banished. Yet, in spite of everything, I come, Medea, Patient to the last with someone I am fond of, To do what I can to help. You and the children need not leave the country penniless And impoverished for…exile drags with it a chain of troubles. And hate me though you may, I cannot bring myself to wish you harm.
