In Edmond Rostand’s beloved 1897 stage play “Cyrano De Bergerac”, the titular soldier-poet is hopelessly in love with Roxane, the most beautiful woman in all of Paris. Believing he has no chance with her because of his extremely large nose, he agrees to write love letters on behalf of the slow-witted Christian, who also pines for Roxane. Rostand’s work is a fictionalization of the real life novelist Cyrano De Bergerac, who in addition to being a novelist and playwright, was a famous duellist and cadet in the French army. Translated from the French by Charles Renauld.
