The love affair between Britannicus and Junia is impressive, beautiful and it represents a wonderful part of the play. The major thing that stands out is that you basically can’t always have what you want, and even if you attempt to take it by force it doesn’t mean that you are going to succeed. Aug 25, Richard Anderson rated it it was amazing.
Possibly everything Inggral read now seems better because I keep comparing boos to “The Pillars of the Earth. Interesting to learn about this, but not my cup of tea.

Okay, we might just put this down to your typical love triangle, but this is Nero we are talking racin, and when you happen to be him you intgrql of don’t like taking no for an answer. This is the first classic britannlcus I’ve read in French when I’m actually old enough to understand its intricacies.
Racine explores how a man so powerful can lose all bearings, with a little help from a certain double-agent advisor. Yet rcaine is not so much a murderous tyrant though he wasbut a little boy who never got over the loss of his love. He wants to prevent Britannicus from marrying the woman he loves. I then found out it was about Nero, who’s my favorite Roman emperor, so I was utterly excited, and I literally enjoyed every single part of the book.

Meanwhile, Agrippine Nero’s mother is pissed because her son whom she essentially put on the throne is being a spoiled brat and screening her calls.
The thing is that Nero doesn’t particularly want to speak to her anymore, namely because of her influence over him. Well, this is also Nero that we are talking texhe, so whether he ever actually grew up is another debate I suspect he didn’t.
Britannicus – Wikisource
Recommended if you enjoy Roman history, 17th century French plays, and possibly villain origin stories. It is inspired from the history of ancient Rome, the times of the infamous Nero to be more precise. I loved every second of it. Did you ever wonder where that soap opera trope the one where the bad guy forces one of the good guys to break up with the love interest because the bad guy threatens to kill the love interest originated?
