So the result of the spin is out. We all got #6, which for me is La Thébaïde by Racine. It’s a play, so it will be a quick read. I enjoyed reading Phèdre, so I look forward to reading this lesser-known play by Racine.
The play is evidently inspired by the story of Euripedes about the two sons of Oedipus: Eteocles and Polynices. I expect a lot of violence. The subtitle is Les Frères ennemis, or the Enemy Brothers! The play was performed by Molière’s troupe at the Palais-Royal Theatre on June 20, 1664. I didn’t know that Molière collaborated with Racine. How cool! I look forward to this read.
