Racine Three Plays, Paperback / softback Book

Racine Three Plays Paperback / softback


This work contains three masterpieces by one of the most important French dramatists of the 17th century. "Berenice" is a tale of love and personal happiness in conflict with public duty. "Phedre" concerns a princess with an overwhelming infatuation with her stepson. "Britannicus" lays bare the relationships at the heart of power as a world slips into moral chaos.

These new versions by two of the country's most distinguished director-translators prove that Racine is far from untranslatable; they offer blisteringly effective poetry, urgent plotting and powerhouse roles for both actors and actresses.
