Berenice

Jean Racine (1639 - 1699)
Translated by Robert Bruce Boswell (1864 - 1933)

Titus, emperor of Rome, wants to marry Berenice, queen of Palestine, but decides that Rome will not be able to handle having him marry a foreign queen. Berenice refuses to stay in this case and leaves Rome. Unlike many of the other Racine plays, there actually are survivors (albeit, broken-hearted survivors) at the end of this one! - Summary by ToddHW
