This ‘pint-sized’ 17th century Racine volume was purchased locally, from retired French and Art History lecturer, Dr Roger Collins. Pierre Corneille (1606-84) and Jean Racine (1639-1699) were two of the most popular and successful authors of their time and both writers drew heavily on ancient Greek and Roman history and literature for their works of tragedy and comedy. Special Collections has almost one hundred works by or concerning Corneille and Racine.
