"On the platform stage, bare but for a pair of immense gates, stalks the inevitable tiger of war. Hector returns from battle as a peacemaker and convinces Ulysses and the populace of the insanity of war. Together they agree that the Trojan War shall not take place. But the poets need a war for their elegies and dirges; the king, because it is custom; the lawyer, because of his honor; and others, for various mean reasons. And so, in spite of all logic, the war erupts."--Publisher's description

Ondine is a play written in 1938 by French dramatist Jean Giraudoux that tells the story of Hans and Ondine. Hans is a knight-errant who has been sent off on a quest by his betrothed. In the forest he meets and falls in love with Ondine, a water-sprite who is attracted to the world of mortal man. The subsequent marriage of people from different worlds is of course folly. By turns comic, enchanting, and tragic, Ondine is considered by some to be Giraudoux's finest work.

"Here is the quintessence of Giraudoux's extraordinary imagination and style. A shy girl applying for a job at the Office of Inventions learns from a nondescript man that she can have her way with any man if she declares that he is as handsome as the nonexistent statue of the Apollo of Bellac. The play is alive with wry and trenchant observations on the comical attitudes and truths that man assumes in life."--Publisher's description
