27 editions published between 1945 and 1946 in French and held by 376 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tragedy by Pierre Corneille, first performed 1645, and remarkable for its powerful, if melodramatic, portrait of moral evil. The central character, Cléopâtre, queen of Syria, will sacrifice anything to retain power. Only she can decide between the rival claims of her twin sons, Antiochus and Séleucus, to inherit the throne; she promises her voice to whichever of the two will rid her of Rodogune, princess of Parthia, whose hand is destined to the new king. Both princes love Rodogune, but she confronts them with a terrible dilemma by promising love to whichever kills his mother. In desperation Cléopâtre kills Séleucus, the weaker of the twins, and prepares a poisoned cup for the wedding of Antiochus and Rodogune, but is forced into drinking it herself, and dies defiant. -- Answer.com

Bérénice by Jean Racine( Book )

18 editions published in 1974 in 3 languages and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The critical event in 'Berenice', the death of Titus' father, the Emperor Vespasian, happens a week before the play opens. Thereafter Titus knows that his separation from Berenice is inevitable. The breaking off of a great love affair involves too the hopes of Antiochus, himself long in love with Berenice. The play pushes all three of its principles to the brink, not of revenge but of self-murder, before in her sublime last speech Berenice redeems and directs them all in an act of collective abnegation. Many tears are shed, but not a drop of blood. The effect is unconventional, and profound: the pained acceptance of the irreconcilable in human affairs, and the surrender, by each of the main characters, of the person they most love. Alan Hollinghurst's translation of 'Berenice' premiered at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in October 2012
