Read full description of the books:



The myth of Phaedra, or Phedre, is one of the most powerful in all of classical mythology. As interpreted by the French playwright Jean Racine (1639-99), the story of the dying queen's obsessive love for her stepson, Hippolytus, has come to be known as one of the great dramas of tragic infatuation, a tale of love strong enough to bring down a kingdom. For this translation Ted Hughes replaced Racine's alexandrines, with a lean, high-tension English verse that serves eloquently to convey the passions of his protagonists.
