Any emotion can become dangerous or volatile. All we have to do is watch the evening new for that point to be proven. None-the-less, in Phaedra, Racine portrays life as if there are no choices, and that would be incorrect. We all have choices. We choose what we're going to do, and we choose how we're going to handle the things we can't control.
