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

858 editions published between 1637 and 2020 in 19 languages and held by 6,153 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories of the Cid are based on the life of the Spanish warrior Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, who lived approximately from 1043 until 1099. The real "Cid" seems to have fought for both Muslims and Christians at different times and appears to have been a sellsword figure. In the play, however, he is lauded solely as a Christian soldier. The name "El Cid" was derived from the Arabic word for lord ("sayyid") and made Spanish, and further given a French article for Corneille's version. To this day, the Cid remains a popular Spanish folklore character, who has inspired many stories and works of art
Polyeucte by Pierre Corneille( )

270 editions published between 1643 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 4,966 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
Corneille's Horace by Pierre Corneille( )

384 editions published between 1656 and 2020 in 8 languages and held by 3,066 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

Cinna by Pierre Corneille( Book )

145 editions published between 1705 and 2019 in 8 languages and held by 728 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
