Book Club Jean Racine, “Britannicus”


This fall the Coucou Book club is back in person with Adrien at our Nolita location! For the first time, students will be exploring a classic French play rather than a novel!


Jean Racine, “Britannicus”

Primarily known for his tragedies, Jean Racine is one of the three great playwrights of 17th-century France, along with Molière and Corneille.

Unfolding at the outset of emperor Nero’s reign in Rome, Britannicus is a masterpiece of French classical tragedy. Structured in five acts entirely written in French alexandrines, the play represents the culmination of beauty and precision of the French language.


The book is available at Albertine here or on Amazon here.

The book club will take place in person at Coucou over the course of four Sunday sessions from 4 to 6pm EST.
