Iphigenia

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

Racine's version of the time-honored story of Iphigenia was acted for the first time in 1674. The model upon which it is shaped is the "Iphigenia in Aulis" of his favorite Euripides, but the French poet has heightened the romantic interest and complicated the plot by the important part which Eriphyle is made to play. - Summary by Introduction
