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

1,607 editions published between 1636 and 2017 in 17 languages and held by 6,216 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 )

792 editions published between 1639 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 3,006 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 )

643 editions published between 1640 and 2015 in 9 languages and held by 2,185 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
