Meet the Author

Jean Racine, né a la Ferté-Milon le 22 de décembre 1639 et mort à Paris le 21 avril 1699, est considéré l’un des deux plus grands dramaturges classiques du théâtre français. L’autre est Pierre Corneille. Orphelin dès l’âge de trois ans (sa mère est morte en 1639 et son père décède en 1643). Il reste chez ses grands-parents jusqu’à 1649. Il reçoit une excellente éducation janseniste aux Petites écoles de Port-Royal. Le succès de sa tragédie Andromaque (1667) assure sa réputation. Attaqué sur ses moeurs, il épouse Catherine de Romanet, qui lui donnera sept enfants et de nombreuses maîtresses il aurait dix-sept enfants illégitimes.
