Overview

One of the greatest plays of all time.

Racine's Phedre, which is printed here in the original French facing Rawling's translation, is the supreme achievement of French neoclassic tragedy. In her amusing Foreword, Rawlings explains how this particular translation, made specifically from the actor's point of view, evolved from the 1957 Campbell Allen production.

Containing both the French and English texts plus Racine's own Preface and notes on his contemporary and classical references, this edition of Phedre is a favorite among modern readers and is of special value to students, amateur companies, and repertory theaters alike.
