Description

Rostand's famous play tells of the brilliant wit Cyrano, with a face marred by his huge nose, who composes love letters to help his friend Christian woo the beautiful Roxane, with whom Cyrano is secretly in love.

"From the virtuoso Anthony Burgess - a superbly inventive new translation of Edmond Rostand's great French paean to panache! As might be expected, this version catches not only the high pathos of the French text but the wit and humor as well, qualities for the most part lacking in the Brian Hooker translation, which has been the standard for almost fifty years. Mr. Burgess uses verse, of course. And prose too. And (being Burgess) he has also rearranged a scene here and there, cut a little, and even interpolated a moment or two of pure Burgess into the play - all to help make Cyrano totally plausible and playable for contemporary production (which it indeed proved to be when it was preformed at the Tyrone Guthrie Theatre in Minneapolis in 1971)." -- from book jacket.
