    Excerpt from Britannicus: Tragédie

    Racine, it will be seen, did not consider it his duty to adhere scrupulously to all the details given by historians, or to follow closely the chronological order. In his two prefaces he has pointed out some of the alterations he had taken the liberty of making, and endeavoured to justify them. Let us then enumerate these alterations, together with one or two, more important in their bearing on the drama, which he did not mention, examine the motives which induced him thus to modify the data of history, and finally see whether he was justified in so modifying them.

    The death of Britannicus took place in 55, in the calends of January, when Nero had been on the throne for fifteen months only. Racine adds about two years to his life.

    The life of Narcissus is likewise prolonged, and the circumstances of his death are altogether altered instead of being massacred by the mob in 55, he perished by his own hand in 54.

    J unia Calvina, having been expelled from Italy after the death of her brother Silanus, could not have been at Rome at the moment of the action. The love of Britannicus for her is an invention of the poet.

    Racine gives her a purity of character which, ao cording to Tacitus and Seneca, she was far from possessing.

    Supposing that, on account of her birth, virtue, and misfortune, the Roman people have taken her under their protection and relieved her from the conditions imposed by law, he makes her a Vestal at the death of Britannicus.
