The article aims to examine how the motif of killing a child by one of his parents, regardless of the age of victim (abortion is however excluded from this analysis), functions in dramatic works (practicurally in tragedies) and why it can by treated as a special challenge to present this deed in mentioned type of literature. The analysis bases on the selected dramas — especially the Medea by Euripides. Many other characters noted derive also from the ancient Greek-Roman literature, that often refers to the mythology. At the end is also investigated, why Medea, though the motif of the killing own children is repellent and often not easy be presented, appears continuously in literature (not only in dramatic works).
