Inhaltsangabe: The French dramatist Jean Racine (1639-1699) had a lifelong, productive relationship with Ancient Greek literature: two of his best-known plays, Phèdre and Iphigénie, were inspired by the tragedies of Euripides. The annotated Greek texts Racine left in his library provide evidence of his private reading of the literature that lay behind the inspiration. In this scholarly study of Racines annotations of Euripides tragedies, Phillippo examines the creative processes linking these two writers. She concentrates on the extensive and largely unexplored evidence supplied by non-verbal aspects of the annotations, such as the marking of lines and passages by underlining and the use of brackets, which are published here for the first time. Although more enigmatic than Racines limited verbal comments, they provide a fascinating insight into Racines understanding and appreciation of Greek originals whose influence on French theatre was profound.
