Set in the Paris of Louis XIII, Edmond Rostand's immortal play is a swashbuckling tale of a master swordsman, gallant soldier, peerless wit, and poet who is cursed with an enormous nose. Despite his gifts, Cyrano despairs of winning the beautiful Roxane and agrees to help his less talented rival, Christian, woo her with eloquent words. First performed in 1897, the play is one of the most frequently produced in the world and has been adapted for film more than ten times.

From the Back Cover:

Widely considered the most popular modern French play, Cyrano de Bergerac has dazzled audiences with its wit and eloquence since it premiered in 1897.
Cyrano, a quarrelsome, hot-tempered swordsman, as famous for his dueling skills and pugnacity as for his inordinately long nose, is hopelessly enamored of the beautiful Roxane. She, in turn, is in love with Christian, a handsome but inarticulate and slow-witted suitor. Asked for help by Christian in wooing Roxane, Cyrano pours out his heart in romantic dialogues—delivered under cover of night and dense foliage—and through ardent love letters written in the name of Christian.
Presented here in a rich blank verse translation by poet Louis Untermeyer, this beloved romantic comedy will be warmly received by theater buffs as well as students and teachers of drama and literature.

From the Inside Flap:

Translated by Anthony Burgess.
