Le Cid : a translation in rhymed couplets by Pierre Corneille( Book )

1,491 editions published between 1636 and 2016 in 17 languages and held by 5,975 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Published in 1636, Le Cid was held as an ideal work of drama for years by subsequent playwrights. In this tragic coming-of-age story, a young knight is asked to defend his father's honor by challenging his future father-in-law to a duel. Caught between filial devotion and romantic love, Le Cid is in an impossible situation, and he solves this dilemma through true heroic action
Horace by Pierre Corneille( Book )

761 editions published between 1639 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,783 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corneille's Horace (1640), together with its author's Le Cid, launched French classical tragedy. It is a darkly gripping play which speaks directly to our own time. Corneille takes his plot from pre-Republican Roman history - the legendary episode of the triple combat between two sets of brothers to decide a war between Rome and Alba. Horatius's sister, Camilla, is betrothed to his opponent Curiatius, and his wife Sabina is Curiatius's sister. The scene is set for a clash between heroic male commitment to state interests and female values which give prime place to individual feeling. Horace, containing pointed allusion to contemporary French military ambitions, has the power to challenge and disturb modern audiences with its unflinching reckoning of the personal cost of national glory
Polyeucte by Pierre Corneille( Book )

465 editions published between 1648 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,998 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This seventeenth-century drama in five acts was inspired by the tale of Saint Polyeuctus (rendered as 'Polyeucte' in French), a Roman convert to the faith who was martyred in 259 A.D. However, although an imaginatively retold version of the story of St. Polyeuctus comprises some of the plot of the play, Polyeucte also relates metaphorically to the religious debates of the seventeenth century. A must-read for fans of classic drama

The theatre of illusion by Pierre Corneille( Book )

279 editions published between 1635 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,450 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Theatre of Illusion you'll find buffoonery, chicanery, adultery, murder, flights of fancy, and flights of love. A picaresque hero, Clindor, secretly woos the lovely Isabelle away from his master, Matamore. Isabelle suspects that Clindor seeks the charms of another. And Lyse, the indispensable maid, helps to make it all somehow come right. Pierre Corneille described this dazzling play as an "extravagant trifle" and it is, indeed, filled with an abundance of twists and turns and surprises." "Now this baroque masterpiece has been translated by one of America's finest poets and translators of French, Richard Wilbur."--Jacket

Extrait : ""LAODICE - Après tant de hauts faits, il m'est bien doux, Seigneur, De voir encore mes yeux régner sur votre cœur ; De voir, sous les lauriers qui vous couvrent la tête, Un si grand conquérant être encore ma conquête, Et de toute la gloire acquise à ses travaux Faire un illustre hommage à ce peu que je vaux.""
