Cyrano de Bergerac
Publication Date: May 2000
Categories: Continental European
A quarrelsome, hot-tempered, and unattractive swordsman falls hopelessly in love with a beautiful woman and woos her for a handsome but slow-witted suitor. A witty, eloquent drama widely considered the most popular modern French play, it is presented here in a rich blank verse translation by poet Louis Untermeyer.
