Medea Vrs Beloved
Mothers always try to make the correct decisions for their children. Whether it is with their children?s friends, their behavior, or any other aspect of their life. The Mother in Beloved by Toni Morrison, as well as the mother in Media by Euripides, makes decisions concerning the survival of their children, but were these mothers looking out for the best interest of their child or themselves.
In Beloved by Toni Morrison, the mother makes a very crucial decision in the lives of her children. The mother in this story, Sethe, concludes that it would be better for her children to be dead then for her children to have to suffer because of slavery, like she is. Sethe, as well as all the other women slaves, was raped multiple times and was forced into arduous labor. She would not be able to witness her own daughter, Beloved; go through what she had to go through and therefore murdered her. She also tried to murder her two sons and other daughter, but they were all saved. This was for the best because her two sons eventually escaped and did not have to be slaves for much
