Additional Info

Edmond Rostand's immortal play in which chivalry and wit, bravery and love, are forever captured in the timeless spirit of romance. Set in Louis XIII's reign, it is the moving and exciting drama of one of the finest swordsmen in France, a gallant soldier, brilliant wit, tragic poet-lover with the face of a clown. Rostand's extraordinary lyric powers gave birth to a universal hero - Cyrano de Bergerac - and ensured his own reputation as author of one of the best-loved plays in the literature of the stage.

This translation, by the American poet Brian Hooker is nearly as famous as the orginal play itself, and is generally considered to be one of the finest verse translations ever written.
