Hardback in excellent condition.

by Ishbel Addyman


Cyrano de Bergerac is remembered as a lovelorn eccentric with a big nose. The real Cyrano was sharper, funnier and, ironically, more modern than the romantic hero he inspired.

A death-defying soldier-poet in the age of the musketeers, Cyrano's duelling skills were unparalleled, and his wit was every bit as keen as his sword's edge. He employed his sharp tongue and satirical pen in continued criticism of church and state -- his harrowing personal experiences had made him a staunch opponent of Louis XIV's bloody foreign policy -- as well as in defiance of social norms --


Part murder mystery, part literary detective story, Ishbel Addyman presents a fascinating insight into the heroically courageous, sparklingly witty and unfailingly good-humoured man behind the legend.
