Based on Euripides’ Hippolytus, this play by one of France’s greatest playwrights is a magnificent example of character exposition. When the title character, Hippolytus’ stepmother, receives false information that her husband, Theseus, is dead, Phèdra reveals a passionate love for her stepson — an act that eventually spells doom for both characters.

Reprint of a standard edition.
