Jean Baptiste Racine (1639-1699) was a French dramatist, one of the "big three" of 17th century France (along with Moliere and Corneille). Racine was primarily a tragedian, though he did write one comedy. His first tragedy, La Thebaide (1664) and its successor, Alexandre (1665), both had classical themes, but he was already entering into controversy, taking offence at the accusation that he was polluting the minds of his audiences. He broke all ties with Port-Royal, and proceeded with Andromaque (1667), which told the story of Andromache, widow of Hector, and her fate following the Trojan War. In Phaedra (1677), Racine again chose a subject already treated by Greek and Roman tragic poets, this time, Euripides' play Hippolytus.
