Pierre Corneille: Sophonisbe

In The Death of Pompey (1643), the action takes place in Cleopatra’s Egypt. In Sophonisbe (1663), it takes place in North Africa, where Carthage threatened Rome. The plays thus describe the relationships of domination and fascination that Rome maintained with its "allies". Each of them is a variation on the same theme.
