"Upon reading Berenice by Jean Racine, I was immediately drawn into the captivating world of political intrigue, passion, and betrayal. The story of Berenice, Titus, and Antiochus is filled with complex characters whose emotions drive the plot forward. Racine's skillful use of language and his ability to craft tension and suspense kept me turning the pages eagerly, wanting to know what would happen next. The tragic ending left me feeling a mix of sadness and admiration for the characters' depth and complexity. Overall, Berenice is a masterpiece of French classical literature that will stay with me long after I have finished reading it."
