Cyrano de Bergerac is a cracking play. Though it's Moliere that's more often used as a French answer to Shakespeare, Edmond Rostand's Cyrano has to be about the only riposte to Hamlet available in human literature. Philosopher, poet, swordsman, soldier and wit, there is an underlying fatalism to Cyrano. He knows in his heart he is doomed, and his determination to stick to his principles, even in his final moments, elevates his character above just about any you can think of, with the possible exception of the Dane.

There are excellent translations of Cyrano by Anthony Burgess and Brian Hooker, but I'm afraid you do really need to read it in the original French, much as I generally loathe people who say that sort of thing.

Avec Cyrano, Edmond Rostand est au theatre ce que Mozart est a la musique, un pur genie. C'est la cinquieme fois au moins que je relis cette piece et a chaque fois, je suis emu et abasourdi devant tant de beaute et d'intelligence.
