Cyrano de Bergerac Book Excerpt:

Poet and soldier, brawler and charmer, Cyrano de Bergerac is desperately in love with Roxane, the most beautiful woman in Paris. But there is one very large problem - he has a nose of stupendous size and believes she will never see past it to return his feelings. So when he discovers that the handsome but tongue-tied Christian is also pining for Roxane, generous Cyrano offers to help by writing exquisite declarations of love for the young man to woo her with. Will she ever recognize who she is really falling in love with? Set during the reign of Louis XIII, Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac (1897) was one of the great theatrical successes of its time and remains as popular today for its dramatic power and, above all, for its good-natured, passionate and swashbuckling hero.

Cyrano de Bergerac Book Excerpt:

Cyrano de Bergerac is a man with the gift of language, but a strong temper and unusually large nose. Cyrano finds himself deep in love with Lady Roxane, but due to his unfortunate appearance refrains from expressing his feelings. When Cyrano learns that Roxane is in love with the handsome suitor Christian, he eagerly assists Christian in wooing Roxane. Cyrano is able to express his own affection for Roxane in eloquent verse and impassioned letters, all under the ruse of Christian's name. In a tale blending comedy, romance, wit, and deception, Cyrano illustrates the beauty and ultimate tragedy of hidden love. This is an unabridged version of French playwright Edmond Rostand's satirical play, translated by Gladys Thomas and Mary F. Guillemard, which premiered in 1897 and was first published in 1898.

Cyrano de Bergerac Classic Reprint Book Excerpt:

Excerpt from Cyrano De Bergerac While translating Cyrano de Bergerac, I have had moments of fearing lest certain one of his qualities should dispose against him, at the start, anglo-saxon audiences, reared in a different ideal. I mean his boastfulness. I have hoped heartily that it would not, making them less sensitive to all there is of him beside. Indeed, boast ing has a sort of picturesque good reason for being. When the boaster is better than all his boasts. Does one quarrel with. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Cyrano de Bergerac Translated by Gladys Thomas and Mary F Guillemard with an Introduction by W P Trent Book Excerpt:

Based on the real life of the seventeenth century French dramatist of the same name, "Cyrano de Bergerac" is Edmond Rostand's classic romantic play. Cyrano, a cadet in the French Army, is a talented duelist, poet, and musician, however, he has extreme self-doubt in matters of love due to the large size of his nose. Cyrano is conflicted by his inability to summon the confidence to tell the woman that he adores, Roxane, how he truly feels. He writes her a letter expressing his love with the intent of giving it to her during a rendezvous, however, when he learns that Roxane is in love with another, a handsome new cadet, Christian de Neuvillette, he withholds his admission. Christian lacks the intellect and wit to woo Roxane and enlists the help of Cyrano who, despite being against his own self-interest, agrees. First performed in 1897, "Cyrano de Bergerac," is one of the most popular plays in the French language, which brilliantly dramatizes the idea that beauty is only skin deep and that true love is about more than just physical attractiveness. This edition is printed on premium acid-free paper, follows the translation of Gladys Thomas and Mary F. Guillemard, and includes an introduction by W. P. Trent.

Cyrano De Bergerac Book Excerpt:

The classic tragicomic play about a hero whose insecurity about his oversized nose keeps him from the woman he loves. From the time it was written at the end of the nineteenth century by French playwright Edmond Rostand, Cyrano de Bergerac has remained one of the most enduring works of our era—through countless stage and film adaptations as well as homages in popular culture. Our hero is a nobleman, a brave duelist, a talented poet—but one thing holds him back: his nose. Convinced the beautiful Roxane could never love him, Cyrano agrees to help a friend woo her instead. The story that follows has kept readers and audiences laughing and crying for over a century. This is the original play, introducing the incomparable character whom actors yearn to play, and generations of readers have fallen in love with.

Objectively Speaking Book Excerpt:

Readers and students of Ayn Rand will value seeing in this collection of interviews how Ayn Rand applied her philosophy and moral principles to the issues of the day. Objectively Speaking includes half a century of print and broadcast interviews drawn from the Ayn Rand Archives. The thirty-two interviews in this collection, edited by Marlene Podritske and Peter Schwartz, include print interviews from the 1930s and edited transcripts of radio and television interviews from the 1940s through 1981. Selections are included from a remarkable series of radio broadcasts over a four-year period (1962-1966) on Columbia University's station WKCR in New York City and syndicated throughout the United States and Canada. Ayn Rand's unusual and strikingly original insights on a vast range of topics are captured by prominent interviewers in the history of American television broadcasting, such as Johnny Carson, Edwin Newman, Mike Wallace, and Louis Rukeyser. The collection concludes with an interview of Dr. Leonard Peikoff on his radio program in 1999, recalling his 30-year personal and professional association with Ayn Rand and discussing her unique intellectual and literary achievements. Ayn Rand is the best-selling author of Atlas Shrugged, The Fountainhead, Anthem, and We the Living. Fifty years or more after publication, sales of these novels continue to increase.
