The Wikipedia page about the theatre play : here

Jean Racine wrote this play in 1667 based on “Andromache” by Euripides written in 426 BC. A play also based on the first preface to “The Aeneid” by Virgil composed between 29 and 19 BC.

Cons :

Nothing to declare.

Pros :

_Here, “we don’t mess around with love” (as said Musset) that’s for sure.

_Loyalty. Women and men of honour.

_Premium lines. The vocabulary is rich but remains simple. This is the mark of great authors.

_Grace, elegance, strength… Grandiose.

Conclusion :

Titanium love. Military honour. It’s beautiful.

It is obvious that it is this type of work which must provide the basis for the education of young women and men.
