"Poet and soldier, brawler and charmer, Cyrano de Bergerac is desperately in love with Roxane, the most beautiful girl in Paris. But there is one very large problem - he has a nose of stupendous size and believes she will never see past it to return his feelings. So when he discovers that the handsome but tongue-tied and dim-witted Christian is also pining for Roxane, generous Cyrano offers to help by writing exquisite declarations of love for the young man to woo her with. Will she ever recognize who she is really falling in love with? Set during the reign of Louis XIII, Edmond Rostand's "Cyrano de Bergerac" (1897) was one of the great theatrical successes of its time and remains as popular today for its dramatic power and, above all, for its good-natured, passionate and swashbuckling hero."--Jacket

In his play "The Romancers" Edmond Rostand satirizes the sentimentalism and escapism of Romantic literature of his times. Percinet is the only son of Bergamin and Sylvette is the only daughter of Pasquinot. Their fathers who are widowers and neighbors make a plan to marry their children with each other. In order to accomplish this, the fathers separate their children so that they may love each other the more, and desire to be re-united. As a part of their plan, Bergamin warns his son to stay away from Pasquinot and his daughter. Similarly, Pasquinot also warns his daughter that she should not be near to his mortal enemy Bergamin and his son. Inspite of their fathers' warnings, Percinet and Sylvette fall in love. They think themselves as the counterparts of Romeo and Juliet. They are worried that their love will also end in tragedy like that of Romeo and Juliet. They are emotional, daydreaming teenagers who have recently finished their school studies. They are deeply influenced by romantic literature of their times, especially by the romantic play "Romeo and Juliet" of William Shakespeare. They are so in love with each other that they desire to die rather than separate with each other. Bergamin then hires Straforel and his company for a fake kidnapping. At midnight hours, when Percinet and Sylvette are about to meet, Straforel with his company kidnap Sylvette and put her into the sedan chair. Percinet hears the cry of Sylvette, jumps over the wall and fights with his sword. At the same time, as planned, Pasquinot enters and calls Percinet a hero. He suggests Bergamin to put an end to their enmity and arrange the marriage of their children. Thus in the end the two children seem like puppets in the hands of their fathers. - MeroSpark Cloud Reference, http://www.merospark.com

Le nez de Cyrano s'est mis en travers de son cœur. La belle Roxane aime ailleurs, en l'espèce un cadet sans esprit mais de belle apparence, Christian de Neuvillette. La pièce de Rostand met en scène la tragique complicité entre deux moitiés d'homme, et s'achève sur une évidence en forme d'espérance : sous les traits de Christian, ce n'était pas moins que l'âme de Cyrano qu'aimait Roxane. Avec ce drame en cinq actes, au travers des reprises ou des adaptations cinématographiques, Rostand a connu et connaît un triomphe ininterrompu et planétaire. Pourquoi? À cause des qualités d'écriture, des vertus dramatiques ou de la réussite du personnage principal de la pièce? Sans doute, pour une part. Mais la raison profonde tient à son art de caresser l'un de nos plus anciens mythes : il n'est pas de justice ici-bas, ni d'amour heureux. Presque pas. Et tout est dans cette manière de nous camper sur cette frontière, entre rêve et réalité, entre lune et terre. -- From https://www.babelio.com/livres/Rostand-Cyrano-de-Bergerac/5480 (Oct. 31, 2017)
