Medea is comprised mostly of dialogue with a very small amount of exposition. This distribution is used because "Medea" is a play, meant to be acted out on the stage. The description of scenery and actions are the only instances of exposition, maintaining a focus on the characters and their dialogue which is how the plot progresses. The viewpoint of this play is mostly that of Medea, the nurse and the chorus, but there are occasional insights into the viewpoints of Creon, Aegeus and Jason during their conversations with Medea.
