Possibly Nero has a sadistic streak but that’s not the point. Homine imperito nunquam quidquam injustius. As Racine puts it, Britannicus’s death is not significant in and of itself; it matters more because it marks the moment in which Agrippine realizes Nero will one day kill HER, too.

Follett but I am also still waiting on his apologies for inflicting all those weird rape scenes and meticulous boob descriptions on the world. Britannicus devient un homme et prend conscience que la place d’empereur devrait lui revenir.

From where we stand we can look forward to see the man who murdered his mother, and intgfal wander the streets of Rome mugging people because, well, because he was Nero. He wants to prevent Britannicus from marrying the woman he loves. Jan 26, Hgrxanger rated it really liked it.

It is inspired from the history of ancient Rome, the times of the infamous Nero to be more precise. Racine skillfully weaves a textee of how good can not survive in a world where corruption has poisoned a society from the roots up, showing us how even the most powerful people become victim to their own machinations when they have allowed for too long whimsey and lust to be their standard.


MacbethOthelloand the others we read for school. My new favorite drama play! The usual Racine archetypes- the virtuous maiden, the doomed nobleman, the monarchs blinded by their passion- are joined by two deft characterizations- domineering and compelling but woefully short-sighted Aggripina, and two-faced, selfish Narcissus, whose death at the hands of the people as they protect Junia’s walk to salvation would end the play on a triumphant note, were it not that we all know Nero’s worst crimes were yet to come.

C’est plusieurs tentatives de meurtres, aussi. The play begins with Nero’s mother, and power behind the throne, seeking a private audience with her son.

How joyfully do people break their word! I realized that I like the subject and the play and went back to the beginning. Sep 25, Nastasia Rnd added it Shelves: Aug 16, CC rated it really liked it.

This is a very soapy play. I had an idea about the complicated and villainous deeds of the emperors from history and, more recently from I, Claudius. Racine explores how a man so powerful can lose all bearings, with a little help from a certain double-agent advisor.

Even though I had to look up half the words in the dictionary, it was well worth it! Full of intrigue and politics, this glance into the assasination of a Roman racins by his adopted brother is another masterpiece of the theater.

Dec 21, jujensen6 rated it liked it. It is appalling to read about the acts of some of the most powerful men in history- especially the likes of Nero and Caligula. I was reading today that companies in Silicon Valley are working on new foods that will taste and smell like meat, eggs, but they will be made only of plants, proteins and enzymes carefully studied and used in amazing products.


But Britannicus and a number of other works that have been up my alley may alleviate those anxieties. This play isn’t about the tinny romance between Britannicus and Junie. The alexandrins flow beautifully and the arguments are elegantly built in the ancient rhetorical style. Racine’s interactions with the Jansenists in his years at this academy would have great influence over him for the rest of his life. I was thinking that I am unable to enjoy a play by Jean Racine.

Yet, he does make intgrao good point at the end of the play — Aggripina did have Claudius killed to put him on the throne, so what is so different about him killing Britannicus. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. Want to Read saving….
