Are Creon's motivations for exiling Medea in Medea justified, and does his love for his child lead to his death?
Creon's motivations for exiling Medea can be justified on the grounds that she is a barbarian woman. Originally from Colchis, she doesn't belong in Corinth and so must leave at once. At that time, it was not thought acceptable for a single woman in society to be without a family support network. Creon's love for his daughter Glauce leads to his death after he holds her while she's wearing the poisoned dress and coronet given to her by Medea.
