Cyrano

£2.59

Product description

Cyrano de Bergerac is a flamboyant character and a skilled swordsman, not in the least afraid of drawing attention to himself in public-for he can be highly amusing, even at his own expense, with jokes about his enormous nose. But he has a weakness: he has fallen in love with his beautiful cousin Roxane, and because of his own appearance is too ashamed to declare his love. Meanwhile Roxane is besotted with a handsome, but foolish young man, Christian, in the same company of guardsas Cyrano. Cyrano is devastated by this, and horrified by her request that he should protect the young man and encourage him to write her love letters. Writing letters is something Christian can't do-but Cyrano generously offers to help, even if it means breaking his own heart. Soon Cyrano pours outhis feelings in the most romantic letters ever. The question is will Roxane ever discover the truth? And if she does will it be too late for Cyrano?
