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

810 editions published between 1637 and 2020 in 16 languages and held by 6,104 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

185 editions published between 1643 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 3,916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Corneille's last great tragedy, and considered by many his finest work, Polyeucte tells the story of a born-again Christian seeking a martyr's death, and his wife who is in love with another man
Corneille's Horace by Pierre Corneille( )

355 editions published between 1656 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 2,894 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
Le Cid : tragi-comédie by Pierre Corneille( )

210 editions published between 1636 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 2,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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
L'Illusion comique by Pierre Corneille( Book )

118 editions published between 1635 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 981 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Un père à la recherche de son fils consulte un magicien qui lui offre la vision des aventures du jeune égaré, faites d'amour, de duels, mais aussi d'impostures et de trahisons ... Mêlant éloquence tragique, emprunts au répertoire de la comédie italienne et récit d'initiation, L'Illusion comique (1635), oeuvre de jeunesse, est un "étrange monstre", au dire de Corneille lui-même. Identité fuyante des personnages, invraisemblances de l'intrigue et subtilité du montage illusionniste font de cette pièce baroque et capricieuse une vibrante apologie du théâtre. -- 4ème de couverture
Cinna by Pierre Corneille( Book )

170 editions published between 1724 and 2019 in 9 languages and held by 938 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Corneille, on le sait maintenant, était un profond analyste de la vie et du pouvoir politiques. Il raconte ici l'échec d'une conjuration - seule forme d'opposition sous la dictature - et le pardon qui la suit. Sous l'intrigue apparente, et historique, il a voulu montrer le drame du pouvoir vieillissant, de l'opposition impuissante, des individus dépassés par des forces qui les écrasent. Cette tragédie n'a donc rien perdu de sa puissance, ni de son actualité. "--Résumé de l'éditeur
