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

791 editions published between 1637 and 2017 in 16 languages and held by 3,726 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
Corneille's Horace by Pierre Corneille( Book )

339 editions published between 1656 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 1,702 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

Drame du conflit entre les sentiments passionnés et les dures contraintes du devoir moral et politique, la pièce offre une liberté de ton et une audace formelle que Corneille, pour se conformer aux codes d'une dramaturgie classique en train de se mettre en place, s'attachera par la suite à atténuer conserve l'éclat

"Newly arrived in Paris, Dorante meets two women in the Tuileries, Clarice and Lucrece. He falsely boasts about his brave military exploits, falling in love with Clarice in the process. But the joke is on Dorante; he believes Clarice to be named Lucrece, and so he sets about courting the wrong woman. Can Dorante disentangle himself from his many lies and confusions?" --P. [4] of cover
Polyeucte by Pierre Corneille( Book )

169 editions published between 1648 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 751 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
