Summary Jean Racine's dramatization of the Greek classic based on the Greek legend of Theseus, who returned from war with the Minoans to become king of Athens, and took Phedre, daughter of the vanquished King Minos, to be his wife. Phedre falls in love with Theseus' son Hippolyte, who does not return her love. In anger she prays to Neptune to destroy him, but when Hippolyte is in fact killed after fighting a sea monster, Phedre kills herself in remorse.
