Jean Racine (1639-1699), one of the leading French dramatists, balances precariously between the Court conspiracies and the academic conservatism of the 17th century, lodges behind artful expression dark and sick passions, announcing in a unique way the internals of contemporary playwriting dilemmas.

Berenice, Titus and Antiochus are existing persons. The love of the Roman Emperor Titus with Judea Queen Berenice (70-80 AD) is mentioned in historical texts. Racine, however, handled the incidents with great freedom and wrote a unique play that presents these three tragic figures.
