By Jean Racine

Finest chef-d uvre de Racine, qui lui valut, à vingt-sept ans, d être comparé au grand Corneille, Andromaque fut à sa création un véritable triomphe. En réinventant l histoire de l. a. veuve d Hector captive de Pyrrhus, roi d Épire, il inaugurait une nouvelle forme de tragédie, où l amour devenait resource de tous les périls et de tous les égarements. Dans cette pièce aux puissants effets pathétiques, marquée par le désordre extrême des sentiments, les personnages, emportés par leurs passions, se livrent aux pires excès sans jamais cesser d être d authentiques héros.

E. B. ”55 So, for example, while my writing here on Civil War reenactments does not always, or even primarily, focus on the significant roles race or gender played in the Civil War (whether acknowledged by reenactors or not), the very means I use to think through reenactment at all is fundamentally indebted to the work of others who focus on the reverberant problems of dominant history’s exclusions. Foreword 19 My attempt here is to piece a quilt using artworks and reenactment events that question temporal singularity in crosshatch with critical theories about time and performance.
