    1. Ph dre is hydrogen.Ph dre is helium.Ph dre is a star.I say this not only because she s the main character in this glorious play, and even less because she s been played by some of the greatest actresses in the world Sarah Bernhardt, Helen Mirren, Fernanda Montenegro yes, even Brazil adapted this famous play , but because she s constantly in a thermonuclear fusion between reason and emotion that ultimately leads to self destruction in such a powerful blast that affects all the other bodies that g [...]


    2. When is one guilty of something, when one commits the reprehensible deed, and only one knows it, or when it is made known to others Ph dre thinks that the latter case is a great deal worse, worse even than death je meurs pour ne point faire un aveu si funesteje n en mourrai plus, j en mourrai plus coupable And so probably did Racine, because in his Ph dre, the action is activated by Ph dre s avowal of her guilt which she makes three times These three long soliloquies are amongst the most famous [...]


    3. Let s see thwarted love, betrayal, implied incest, heinous lies, father son love triangle with wife stepmother, and a whole lot of death at the end Um, yeah, that s the recipe for a pretty awesome story Phaedra, married to Theseus, has always nurtured a secret love for his son, Hippolytus When she receives news that Theseus is dead, she finally confesses her love to Hippolytus, who is in love with Aricia and is disgusted by his step mother s advances But, hey, guess what Theseus isn t dead and r [...]

    5. 4.5 Uma das v rias vers es desta obra inspirada na mitologia Apesar de algumas discrep ncias entre os diversos autores no andamento do drama, todos eles comungam no fundamental um amor incestuoso, uma mulher rejeitada, vingan a e morte Dram tico e intenso Gostaria de ver isto no teatro.


    6. Tous les adolescents tombent d abord amoureux d Antigone, parce que c est la r volte adolescente C est quand tu tombes amoureux de Ph dre que tu sais que tu as grandi J avais quatorze ans, et je connaissais par c ur la tirade J aime Ne crois pas qu au moment que je t aime, Innocente mes yeux C tait le tout d but d un vrai amour de th tre.


    7. Greek families Histrionics, rash reaction instead of considered response, inability to control emotion Tragedy THIS REVIEW HAS BEEN CURTAILED IN PROTEST AT CENSORSHIP POLICYSee the complete review here arbieroooklikes post 33Bonus GR only bit So if was ever a family, it s now clear that it was one that escaped from a Greek Tragedy It s fairly obvious that all the things in the first sentence of this review can be applied to the GR family the only questions now is how many corpses are going to pi [...]


    8. There s an old Communist era joke, quoted in the movie The Lives of Others, about the Party Leader s conversation with the Sun The punchline is Fuck off, I m in the West now In Racine s play, Ph dre also has a conversation with the Sun When I looked at the footnote, I discovered that they were in fact close relatives.Well as everyone knows these days, being born into a rich, powerful family isn t exactly a guarantee that you re going to have a happy life Generally, you marry someone you don t mu [...]


    9. I was pleasantly surprised by this play, even though I think it lacks originality which I know is one of caracteristics of this genre at this time.


    10. A pretty brutal love triangle12 August 2013 This is apparently Racine s last play before he gave up the theatre scene to return to a religious life within the Jansenist sect For those who don t know what a Jansenist is and that would probably include most of us then picture a god who is mean, nasty, and smacks you over the head with a baseball bat when you step out of line, and you have the god that the Jansenists worship Why would anybody worship a god like that I don t know, but it probably ha [...]



    11. I am surprised at how easy this was to read After reading little bits on my commute, I sat down and finished it in a day Shame colors Phaedra s life and blinds her completely to any solution other than death She is not a reasonable person at any point until the very end when she has seen the consequence of her passion She had hoped in vain that Hippolyte would return her feelings and save her from the shroud of guilt that covered her Ultimately, he became so disgusted by her sentiments that it m [...]


    12. Cuando releo cl sicos entiendo la importancia, no s lo del cl sico sino de la relectura Siento que ahora, con mi experiencia lectora y mis otras experiencias de vida, entend mucho de la pasi n y el sufrimiento de Fedra As como el mont n de referencia de otros personajes que se van sumando a la obra teatral Puedo decir que lo padre de Racine es que su postura es clara nunca hay que tomar decisiones a partir de las pasiones, de otra forma todo se puede ir a la mierda muy f cilmente.


    13. Phaedra, a tragedy by RacineRacine 1639 1699 This play by Racine is based on Phedre by Euripides, not modified in its content, but provided with brilliant dialogs in the French language, in order to bring this classic tragedy alive on the stage of a theatre It had its first presentation on the 1st of January 1677 in Paris, Hotel de Bourgogne.And what an accumulation of tragically and dramatically human emotions to be seen and heard Love and hate, faithfulness and betrayal, hope and despair, frie [...]


    14. La pasi n me llev a querer expulsar al enemigo aquel al que yo idolatraba la envidia fing de una injusta madrastra I.3 Con estas l neas dichas por Fedra se puede resumir el hilo conductor de la obra Gira alrededor de pasiones inmanejables, malentendidos y acusaciones falsas que no anuncian un final feliz Fedra es la esposa de Teseo, el rey de Atenas, y en su ausencia tiene que lidiar con el amor que siente por Hip lito hijo de Teseo y una a , un hombre con el que ya hab a tenido un conflicto pre [...]


    15. I love mythology, especially Greek mythology And Phaedra s story is a particularly juicy myth Married to heroic Theseus, who features in many stories himself, Phaedra has fallen in love with her stepson, Hippolytus Remind anyone else of A Little Night Music Not for long Now word has come that Theseus is dead, and Phaedra confesses her love to Hippolytus Problem Hippolytus is already in love, with Aricia, a captive of his father Further problem Theseus isn t dead at all.Like all the really good G [...]


    16. 4 5 Probably my favourite book from my university reading list so far Thoughts 1 17th century French theatre has always interested me and this didn t disappoint Despite being written in the 1600s, to this day it is still an enjoyable, gripping story that s relatively easy to follow 2 Ph dre was such an intriguing, multifaceted character I never knew what was going to happen with her and what she was going to do next She originates from Greek mythology and although I don t know loads about that, [...]



    17. Que excesso , s podia ser este o livro favorito do pequeno Marcel Fedra, a mulher do rei Teseu, acalorada por desejos incestuosos leva perdi o de todos sua volta Estava de tal forma dominada de culpa que produz algumas das tiradas mais exageradas que li DR MA aten o, nada se chega a consumar , mas o aborrecido que na antiguidade os deuses puniam igualmente o pecado em pensamento Enfim Racine, you re da bomb


    18. What a powerful tragedy about forbidden love And what a difference reading this Richard Wilbur translation made in my enjoyment And Phaedra makes such a contrast to whiny Gwenevere in The Mists of Avalon which I recently finished like Gwenevere she knows her love to be impossible but she doesn t blame either the man Hippolytes or her husband Theseus And even in her jealous rage, she doesn t really blame Aricia either.


    19. Read listened to the LibriVox recording 4 December 2016My rating reflects the translation by Robert Bruce Boswell than Racine s tragedy The play I liked enough that I have requested the Richard Wilbur version from the library.


    20. Read this play translated by Robert Henderson as it appeared in an old Modern Library book called Six Plays by Corneille and Racine Will I have time to read it again


    21. On my second trip through Marcel Proust s la recherche du temps perdu I ve been trying to slow down and check out some of the works mentioned by Proust throughout, focusing mainly on the paintings referenced in the work, but also on a few of the texts, for instance, this one, Jean Racine s Ph dre Ph dre is based on a Greek myth and has been explored by many ancient Greeks, including Euripides, who wrote the play Hippolytus the name of Phaedra s stepson and love interest , Virgil, who included hi [...]


    22. I was a bit nervous after reading Rawling s Translator s Introduction because 1 she is not a professional translator but an actor who translated this as a kind of hobby project, and 2 her introduction suggests a kind of slavish devotion to the genius of Racine Both of these throw up red flags for me.But this is a really beautifully translated play Although the French is printed on the facing page I don t know any French, so I am not evaluating how accurate a translation it is I mean that the poe [...]


    23. I loved this Racine makes one big change from Euripides he blames Phedre s false accusation mostly though not wholly on her nurse, instead of on her Coincidentally, that s the one thing that really stuck out for me in the original I found Phedre s final accusation jarring, unearned and unexplained Soce job, Racine He also throws a love interest for Hippolytus in, though, in order to make him a little lessy know, above it all This was less successful I think he d have achieved the effect cleanly [...]


    24. It s Yukio Mishima s favourite play A mad old queen, a macho young man, plotting and confusion and then death comes to them both But enough about Mishima boom, boom , Racine s play is a spin on the classic s I saw a very cool Croatian production of Hippolytus quite soon after the Yugoslav war Artemis was fully bandaged and moved about in a very curious manner Hippolytus and chums spent the whole time worshipping her, in tiny loincloths Phaedra Thanks be to Heav n, my hands are free from stain.Wo [...]




    25. Pocas obras deben existir como la Fedra de Racine que sean una defensa tan radical de la virtud afortunadamente , pero tambi n pocas obras deben existir como la Fedra de Racine que hablen con tanta intensidad del dolor por un amor que se sabe que nunca ser correspondido desgraciadamente Fedra est enamorada de Hip lito, el hijo de su marido, que encima resulta que no es nada m s que un bravuc n mis gino y arrogante Ella agoniza literalmente de amor como pasa en toda tragedia que se precie , pero, [...]


    26. Maybe it was the translator Robert Lowell Jean Racine s Phedre was originally in French and his style and language or my particular version that have contributed to my adoration of this play However, although these factors do contribute substantially, it was Racine himself who showed his stature and dignity as a prominent French playwright.I chose the words stature and dignity for a reason by the way For Racine, although his basis is essentially Greek mythology and tragedy, had baptized a new fo [...]
