Synopsis

Phedra

Phedra $6.99

Jean Racine trans Julie Rose

Published by Nick Hern Books

4 Male 4 Female

Racine's drama is one of passion overpowering reason. Phedre lusts for her stepson Hippolytus, misogynist Hippolytus yearns for the royal captive Aricia, Oenone will do anything to protect her mistress Phedre's reputation, nd Theseus will believe Oenone and exile his son Hippolytus rather than question Phedre

These are all errors of judgment that the gods will punish, regardless of the culprits' good intentions or previous good works
