Andromaque by Jean Racine

By Jean Racine

Most desirable chef-d uvre de Racine, qui lui valut, à vingt-sept ans, d être comparé au grand Corneille, Andromaque fut à sa création un véritable triomphe. En réinventant l histoire de l. a. veuve d Hector captive de Pyrrhus, roi d Épire, il inaugurait une nouvelle forme de tragédie, où l amour devenait resource de tous les périls et de tous les égarements. Dans cette pièce aux puissants effets pathétiques, marquée par le désordre extrême des sentiments, les personnages, emportés par leurs passions, se livrent aux pires excès sans jamais cesser d être d authentiques héros.
