Cyrano de Bargerac is Edmond Rostand's immortal play in which chivalry and wit, bravery and love are forever captured in the timeless spirit of romance. It is the moving and exciting drama of one of the finest swordsmen of France, a gallant soldier, brilliant wit, and tragic lover with the face of a clown. Captivating, bittersweet sadness and exquisitely polished language have made Cyrano de Bergerac one of the best-loved plays in the literature of the stage. This is the complete unabridged 1923 English verse translation by poet and librettist William Brian Hooker of French dramatis Edmon Rostand's play, also written in verse. Hooker prepared this translation for actor Walter Hamden who played Cyrano in a long running Broadway production with 232 performances in 1923; in 1946 Hamden passed the torch to José Ferrer who won awards for his performance on stage, in film and on television.

Synopsis

The legendary romance about a quick-witted swashbuckler whose nose is as big as his heart Set during the reign of Louis XIII, Cyrano de Bergerac is a play about one of the most estimable characters in literature. Desperately in love with the beautiful Roxane but convinced she will never look past his titanic proboscis, Cyrano helps the tongue-tied Christian pen exquisite verse with which to woo her. Presented in an elegant new translation, this comic adventure continues to be popular for its dramatic power and, above all, its magnetic hero. * Includes an introduction, chronology, explanatory notes, and historical note
