    One thought on “Cyrano de Bergerac”

    1. I read this book in 1994, and it changed the way I thought about stories. Up until that point in my life, the vast majority of the books I'd read were fantasy and science fiction. Many of them were good books. Many, in retrospect, were not. Then I read Cyrano De Bergerac. For the first half of the play I was amazed at the character, I was stunned by the language. I was utterly captivated by the story. The second half of the book broke my heart. Then it broke my heart again. I cried for hours. I [...]

    2. One of the all-time great over-the-top romances - everyone knows the story, and it's been adapted a million times. How they could have given it a happy ending in Steve Martin's "Roxanne" is beyond me. The Depardieu movie is the one to see, of course.

    3. YET ANOTHER READING, December 15, 2009I forced my class to read this book for their reading time, which is usually reserved for personal reading time.They loved it.I can't think of a better endorsement. No other book I know of can get the full enthusiasm of both an English teacher and a classroom full of stratified and unique, individual students--especially when they have been forced to read the book.Why? Because Cyrano has a universal appeal that spans generations. Because Cyrano is funny. Bec [...]

    5. Ah, Cyrano. You never disappoint me. How many times have I read your story? How many times have I laughed, cheered, cried and sighed over you? Too many to count, and there will be many more in the future. You are my hero.But did you know you were a real person? Wait, that sounds silly. Of course you knew that, but how did it slip my own mind? Maybe other times when I read the introductory note to Edmond Rostand's wonderful play about you, this phrase never took hold in my little pea brain: The c [...]

    6. نادرا ما تلاقى عمل مترجم (تنسى وانت تقرأه انه مترجم فى الاساس)وهذا ما تجده فى اعمال المنفلوطى فقد امتلك من براعة الاسلوب وقوة اللغه ما جعله يصبغ العربيه على العمل المترجمورغم ما قد يعيب القصه من تقليديه وابتذال الا ان قوة الاسلوب تجعلنا نتغاضى عن عيوب القصه

    7. Updated review with notes on a few available English translations.This is the most beautiful and most heartbreaking love story ever. I have watched the movie with Gérard Depardieu in the title role a million times, I have seen stage performances of it. It never fails to make me laugh and turn me into a sobbing mess by the last line.Cyrano is the best swordsman of Paris; he is also the city’s greatest poet. He is as grand in deeds as he is in words, refuses prestige and the limelight, preferri [...]

    9. E’ una storia d’amore e di nasi.Le storie di nasi abbondano in letteratura c’è il naso di Gogol, c’è quello lungo e ligneo di Pinocchio, c’è quello di Moscarda nel pirandelliano Uno nessuno centomila che un giorno si guarda allo specchio e comincia a non riconoscersi più e va in crisi identitaria.All’ampiezza del naso si attribuiscono difformi significati: alcuni fisiologi dicono che ad un naso lungo corrispondono profondità di spirito, spiccato acume e tutta una serie di buone [...]

    10. Capolavoro! La genialità di Rostand è smisurata e queste cinque stelline corrispondono a una mia vera e propria dichiarazione d’amore verso quest’opera, dove ogni atto contiene una perla poetica, e verso il protagonista, Cyrano, micidiale con la spada e con le parole. Le parole sono la sua arma, ma anche il suo nutrimento, la forza che gli permette di vivere e resistere alle difficoltà, senza mai piegarsi davanti al potere e senza accettare compromessi per convenienza, anche se questo sig [...]

    11. Aldilà della storia d’amore, che pur gli appartiene e contribuisce a definirlo, il ritratto intenso di un uomo che ha scelto di essere solo se stesso, sia pure con tutti i limiti di una certa spavalderia e di un grande orgoglio. Ma disposto a pagarne sempre le conseguenze, con onestà e dignità. Uno “Stoner” di altri tempi, tempi in cui estrarre la spada era naturale come bere un bicchiere d’acqua. Ma comunque uno “Stoner”. Ebbene sì, devo ammetterlo, mi sono commossa anche in que [...]

    12. Letto la prima volta tra il 17 e il 19 gennaio 2017: ❤Seconda Lettura - 30 e 31 gennaio 2018: bello quanto la prima volta. ❤️

    13. " أحب ألا أنظم من الشعر إلا ما يجود به خاطري، و ألا أنظم إلا بالطريقة التي أريدها أنا، لا التي لا يريدها الناس لي، و ألا أمتع نظري إلا بمنظر الأزهار التي أغرسها بيدي في حديقتي، فإن قدر الله لي منزلةً في الحياة فلن أكون مدينًا بها لأحد غيري، و لن يكون فخرها عائدًا إلا عليَّ وحدي، [...]

    14. What an entertaining and very funny swashbuckler this was! With such a lovable hero with a big nose and a bigger heart, whose wit is as ready and sharp as his rapier. Cyrano is going to make you laugh, think and feel sad with his rhymes (which, by the way, the English translation doesn't do full justice), whilst the heroine is a bit too vapid for him. I do wish the ending hadn't been like it was, but I appreciate why it had to go down like that and how it fits Cyrano's character and shows his im [...]

    15. Rossana: Amavo un sol essere e due volte lo perdo!Di certo, iniziando a leggere il Cyrano non mi aspettavo chissà cosa. E' stato appagante scoprire che anche se le mie aspettative fossero state alle stelle non sarei rimasta comunque delusa.Il motivo è semplice: quest'opera non può deludere. Cattura sin da subito con i suoi brillanti dialoghi, di modo che anche chi non è proprio avvezzo al teatro si immerga talmente nella vicenda da assuefarsi subito allo stile. Per non parlare del protagonis [...]

    16. E chi non conosce Cyrano? La sua lingua è affilata e potente come la sua spada, pronto a dar battaglia ad un esercito intero. Un povero con un cuore ricco, l’animo gonfio d’amore per la bella Rossana e un naso fuori misura che gli impedisce di scoprirsi all’amata. Ma quanto di quello che a volte ci sembra limitante per noi è per gli altri una sciocchezza?! Che cosa serve all’amore se non un animo puro in cui poter crescere protetto e al riparo dalle “intemperie della vita”?! io par [...]

    17. Ah Cyrano, you of the forever-unbesmirched white plume, you who compromiseth not, you witty boastful holy heathen. You whose facial prominence was unbegotten of lies, as Pinocchio, but by the cruel capriciousness of nature, who was made very much of flesh not wood and whose human heart lay unseen under the shadow of your long disability; you seemed consigned to a certain Pinocchio-like boyhood when you wanted to be a man in full. But, ah fate! Your nose was a beacon signalling unhappiness and yo [...]

    18. Chi è il Cyrano? Ce lo dice lui stesso:Filosofo, fisico, poeta, uomo d'armi, musicista, trasvolatore di spazi, gran polemista e anche amante - ma per conto d'altri, Qui giace Cyrano de Bergerac che in vita sua fu tutto e non fu nienteSono versi che richiamano sicurezza e coscienza di sé: è Un uomo molto colto, innamorato delle parole nonché di Rossana. E proprio come gesto d'amore, giacché si ritiene brutto e indegno di lei, rinuncia a rivelarsi in favore di Cristiano, bello ma ignorante, a [...]

    19. (Originally posted here!)I have noticed that my latest reviews are brought about by intense feelings that had to be expressed. This applies to this book VERY MUCH. You know those stories where the guy falls in love with a girl, but the girl likes someone else, and so the guy helps that someone else just for the girl’s happiness? This is like a classic version of that. It is so heartbreaking and at the same time so beautiful that I just can’t help but stop as I drink the words in. This is the [...]

    20. Questo è uno di quei casi in cui la memoria di un'opera e del suo protagonista è stata lentamente distorta dagli anni e dal successo. Bisogna leggere Cyrano de Bergerac, perché è romantico, sentimentale, divertente; perché Rostand, con stratagemmi e anacronismi, è riuscito a rendere la sua commedia eterna e modernissima, e l'aspetto comico è stato troppo spesso dimenticato; e infine perché gli altri personaggi non sono meno memorabili del protagonista. Alcuni, come Ragueneau, meriterebbe [...]

    23. Non lo avevo mai letto. Come accade per tanti di quei "classici", di cui si sente parlare così spesso da averne, poi, più che una semplice idea, un'opinione vera e propria. Ricordavo, vagamente, la versione televisiva italiana, in bianco e nero - Domenico Modugno 'as' Cyrano - seguita con curiosità agli .ri della conoscenza. Conservavo una serie di immagini di risulta, confuse e distorte dall'uso e dall'interpretazione altrui, quali la celeberrima canzone di Guccini; le allusioni al naso ecce [...]

    26. My favorite section: "What would you have me do? Seek for the patronage of some great man,And like a creeping vine on a tall treeCrawl upward, where I cannot stand alone?No thank you! Dedicate, as others do,Poems to pawnbrokers? Be a buffoonIn the vile hope of teasing out a smileOn some cold face? No thank you! Eat a toadFor breakfast every morning?

    28. "Cyrano de Bergerac" is basically about this swordsman named Cyrano, who is an amazing fighter and poet and is in love with his cousin Roxanne. The only bad thing is that Cyrano has a huge nose which keeps him from approaching Roxanne in earnest. Anyway, there's also this other guy that likes Roxanne named Christian, but although Christian has really good looks, he is a screw up with words and doesn't know how to communicate with females. Finally, there's another guy (whose already married) that [...]

    29. ما يزيد هذه الرواية جمالا، هو تفرد البطل وغرابته، فقلة من الأبطال نجدهم بهذا القبح والدمامه، سيرانو رمز لا ينسى للتضحية والوفاء والروعه، الأسلوب الشعري جميل في حوارات الرواية من أولها حتى آخر الصفحات، ربما لن تعجب الأشخاص العمليين الذين لا يحبون السجع والأوصاف الشعرية بشك [...]

    30. I read "Cyrano" in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, just as things were heating up between the Arabs and the Israelis leading to the 6-Day War. What a pleasure to read the wit and romantic comedy of Rostand during such a stressful crisis. The next time I would like to read it in French, of course with a good French-English dictionary by my side. Great literature, especially comic literature such as that of Voltaire and Shakespeare, or Wilde and Amis, can sustain us through the grimness of life.
