About the Book

Cyrano de Bergerac is an immersive play formulated by Edmond Rostand. It was primarily produced in 1897 and printed in 1898. The play tells the story of a French chevalier of the 17th century who was known for his adventurous life and immense nose. The following Cyrano de Bergerac summary outlines the five acts of the play. The curtain rises to indicate the inside scenes of a theater. The diverse viewer is present, expecting the play to begin, and their discussion informs us (wrongly) that this is the renowned theatre in which Corneille's Le Cid was established. The play tonight is Baro's Clorise, and its leading actor is Mont Fleury. The classical tradition of French drama was formalized in the seventeenth century. Victor Hugo broke the restrictive chains of French classicism with his "Preface" to Cromwell. Cyrano de Bergerac is considered a complete romantic drama, but it did not truly revive this school nor continue it. Cyrano seems to be an outcome of medieval French literature - the songs of the troubadours. Cyrano de Bergerac combines these two genres in their fundamental kind and story. This can also be examined as a virtuoso play, written to tap the talents of one actor.

About Author

Edmond Rostand

Edmond Rostand was born on April 1, 1868, and died on December 2, 1918, in France. He was a French storyteller of the period just during the First World War, whose plays provide a final, very overdue example of loving drama in France. His name is intricately connected with that of his most popular and persistent play, Cyrano de Bergerac. The act was first performed in Paris in 1897, with the popular actor continual Coquelin playing the lead, Cyrano de Bergerac made a brilliant impression in France and all over the United States and Europe. The plot revolves around the emotional issue of Cyrano, who, despite his many gifts, feels that no woman can ever adore him because he has a tremendous nose. The relationship between the Cyrano of the play and the seventeenth-century nobleman and writer of the same name is solely nominal. But Rostand's stirring and colorful historical play, with its bright poetry, a deft blend of pathos and comedy, and fast-paced plot, provides welcome relief from the bleak dramas that emerged from the Symbolist and Naturalist movements. Edmond Rostand was linked with neo-romanticism and is well-known for his play "Cyrano de Bergerac." His novel provides a different take on the natural scenes popular during the late 19th century.
