Description
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.



About the Author
Poete et auteur dramatique francais, Edmond Rostand (1868-1918) connait, apres des essais infructueux en poesie et au theatre, un succes immense et international avec "Cyrano de Bergerac" puis avec "L'Aiglon". Il entre a l'Academie francaise en 1901, date a laquelle il se retire au pays basque, en raison de sa sante fragile.
