, Jan 1, 2004
Based on the real life of the seventeenth century French dramatist of the same name, "Cyrano de Bergerac" is the classic romantic play by Edmond Rostand. Cyrano, a cadet in the French Army, is a talented duelist, poet, and musician, however he has extreme self-doubt in matters of love due to the large size of his nose. Cyrano is conflicted by his inability to summon the confidence to tell the woman that he adores, Roxane, how he truly feels. "Cyrano de Bergerac", one of the most popular plays in the French language, brilliantly dramatizes the idea that beauty is only skin deep and that true love is about more than just physical attractiveness. Presented in this volume is the English translation of Gladys Thomas and Mary F. Guillemard.
