I just loved it The story the writing the characters the alexandrines of Edmond de Rostand are lively right poetic tender funny to read in French because as always the poetry of words has it s own music that cannot be heard in another language I must admit that I have a little trouble concentrating myself to write this review because it is February the 15th and my friendly neighbors from the Vietnamese pagoda are celebrating their new year tonight The drums will sound until two o clock in the morning Like every year we are invited The dragon does not bite and the rice is hot If I m not to tired I might go for few minutes So let s come back to Cyrano What a man what a nose what a panache what a verve what a humanity what a magnanimity Crack crack crack The firecrackers of the Buddhist pagoda explode Pendant ue je restais en bas dans l ombre noireD autres montaient cueillir le baiser de la gloire While I was staying down in the dark shadowOthers went to gather the kiss of glory Boom Boom Boom Boom The drums are slamming at my neighbors come from the East Roxane Je vous aime vivez Cyrano Non car c est dans le conteue lorsue l on dit Je t aime au prince plein de honteIl sent sa laideur fondre ces mots de soleilMais tu t apercevrais ue je reste pareil RoxaneI love you liveCyrano No because in the tale when we say I love you to the prince full of shame that he feels his ugliness melt at these words of sun But you ll see that I remain the sameAh a language is so beautiful when it is well rhymed and Edmond de Rostand does it so perfectly There is Moli re and Gautier in his feather His writing is light cheerful incisive full of tenderness and Cyrano is the same We can only love this character who laughs not to cry who has a uick wit like no other in spite of his nose some would say I say thanks to his nose If he had not had that physical disgrace that deprived him of his mother s love no doubt he would never have compensated for it by this dazzling talent of the French languageOne thing that I liked none of the characters is completely bad It may seem a bit simple too nice but I believe the opposite it s much easier to make a story with one or real villains In Cyrano the suspense is present the end is fabulous the love story is terribly moving without Rostand had to overwhelm us with horrible things to read Great heart great art Hate to Love You year tonight The drums will sound until two o clock in the morning Like every Parsnips, Buttered: Bamboozle and Boycott Modern Life, One Email at a Time (Audio Download): Amazon.co.uk: Joe Lycett, Joe Lycett, Hodder & Stoughton: Audible Audiobooks year we are invited The dragon does not bite and the rice is hot If I m not to tired I might go for few minutes So let s come back to Cyrano What a man what a nose what a panache what a verve what a humanity what a magnanimity Crack crack crack The firecrackers of the Buddhist pagoda explode Pendant ue je restais en bas dans l ombre noireD autres montaient cueillir le baiser de la gloire While I was staying down in the dark shadowOthers went to gather the kiss of glory Boom Boom Boom Boom The drums are slamming at my neighbors come from the East Roxane Je vous aime vivez Cyrano Non car c est dans le conteue lorsue l on dit Je t aime au prince plein de honteIl sent sa laideur fondre ces mots de soleilMais tu t apercevrais ue je reste pareil RoxaneI love Lewis Carroll in His Own Account The Complete Bank Account of the Rev C L Dodgson you liveCyrano No because in the tale when we say I love Art of Magic the Gathering: Innistrad you to the prince full of shame that he feels his ugliness melt at these words of sun But Esposa Humillada (Princesas al borde de un ataque de nervios nº 2) (Spanish Edition) you ll see that I remain the sameAh a language is so beautiful when it is well rhymed and Edmond de Rostand does it so perfectly There is Moli re and Gautier in his feather His writing is light cheerful incisive full of tenderness and Cyrano is the same We can only love this character who laughs not to cry who has a uick wit like no other in spite of his nose some would say I say thanks to his nose If he had not had that physical disgrace that deprived him of his mother s love no doubt he would never have compensated for it by this dazzling talent of the French languageOne thing that I liked none of the characters is completely bad It may seem a bit simple too nice but I believe the opposite it s much easier to make a story with one or real villains In Cyrano the suspense is present the end is fabulous the love story is terribly moving without Rostand had to overwhelm us with horrible things to read Great heart great art

Summary Cyrano de Bergerac ã PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ENDURING LITERATURE ILLUMINATEDBY PRACTICAL SCHOLARSHIPEdmond Rostand's classic romance tells the unforgettable story of one uniue man's bravery loyalty and unspoken loveEACH ENRICHED CLASSIC EDITION INCLUDES• A concise introduction that gives readers important background information• A chronology of the author's life and work• A timeline of significant events t. I read this book in 1994 and it changed the way I thought about stories Up until that point in my life the vast majority of the books I d read were fantasy and science fiction Many of them were good books Many in retrospect were not Then I read Cyrano De Bergerac For the first half of the play I was amazed at the character I was stunned by the language I was utterly captivated by the story The second half of the book broke my heart Then it broke my heart again I cried for hours I decided if I ever wrote a fantasy novel I wanted it to be as good as this I wanted my characters to be as good as this A couple months later I started writing The Name of the Wind Over the years I ve read many translations of the original and seen many different movies and stage productions In my opinion the Brian Hooker translation is the best of these head and shoulders above the rest The problem is this the play was originally written in French which is a relatively pure language linguistically speaking Because of the way it s structured French rhymes very naturally English on the other hand is a total mutt of a language It s as pure as a rabid dog We re linguistically Germanic at our roots but that s like saying a terrier used to be a wolf Modern English is a rich delicious gumbo full of Latin Old Norse French and well pretty much whatever we found laying around the kitchen that we wanted to throw into the pot BTW what you see up in the previous paragraph is the very definition of a mixed metaphor Just so you know Modern English doesn t rhyme naturally You really have to stretch to fit it into into couplets And unless this is done masterfully what you re doing ends up sounding arty and pretentious or like Dr Seuss to the English speaking ear And those are best case scenarios Brian Hooker was a proper poet and he realized that the rhyme was secondary He knew the most important thing was that Cyrano speak with elouence wit and beauty in his language So that s what he focuses on There s a little rhyming but just a little Just when it works The result is lovely and at no point do you ever feel like you re reading a kid s book or an Elizabethan sonnet Cyrano sounds like a fucking badass So yeah It s the best If you re going to read one piece of drama before you die read this

YET ANOTHER READING December 15 2009I forced my class to read this book for their reading time which is usually reserved for personal reading timeThey loved itI can t think of a better endorsement No other book I know of can get the full enthusiasm of both an English teacher and a classroom full of stratified and uniue individual students especially when they have been forced to read the bookWhy Because Cyrano has a universal appeal that spans generations Because Cyrano is funny Because his tale is adventurous Because it is unblinkingly sincere and puts away pretenses if even for a few beautiful and believable moments Because we all hope to attain the kind of love that Rostand presents in his protagonist Why Because Cyrano de Bergerac rings true in the deepest and surest sense that any literature I have ever read has ever been able to attainWow That is a pretty epic and sweeping recommendation you might think but it only touches on the wide range of emotions I get when I read through it And now as I think back on this past reading and the several readings from before it I cannot think of any book any piece of literature anywhere that has a favorable spot in my heart No other piece of literature has the ability to make me laugh cry smile satisfied or yearn tragically with as much poignant ability as this pieceCyrano is my hero and according to his inspiration I hope to preserve my own white plume up until the very moment of my death What a beautiful person Cyrano is what a beautiful character Rostand has created Read it Just read it and find the Cyrano in yourself because he is there in all of us that much should be as plain as well the nose on your facePREVIOUS REVIEW 2006 1997 othersOne of the most balanced talented pieces of literature I have ever read Plus I think that Edmond Rostand besides being extremely clever and funny has a few scenes of such startling raw truth and emotion that I ve never found an eual in other works I ve read
