Most widely held works by Pierre Corneille
Le Cid : a translation in rhymed couplets by Pierre Corneille( Book )
450 editions published between 1637 and 2015 in 15 languages and held by 2,892 libraries worldwide
Published in 1636, Le Cid was held as an ideal work of drama for years by subsequent playwrights. In this tragic coming-of-age story, a young knight is asked to defend his father's honor by challenging his future father-in-law to a duel. Caught between filial devotion and romantic love, Le Cid is in an impossible situation, and he solves this dilemma through true heroic action

Extrait : ""EMILIE : Au milieu toutefois d'une fureur si juste, J'aime encor plus Cinna que je ne hais Auguste, Et je sens refroidir ce bouillant mouvement Quand il faut, pour le suivre, exposer mon amant. Oui, Cinna, contre moi, moi-même je m'irrite Quand je songe aux dangers où je te précipite.""
Polyeucte by Pierre Corneille( Book )
368 editions published between 1644 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 1,882 libraries worldwide
This seventeenth-century drama in five acts was inspired by the tale of Saint Polyeuctus (rendered as 'Polyeucte' in French), a Roman convert to the faith who was martyred in 259 A.D. However, although an imaginatively retold version of the story of St. Polyeuctus comprises some of the plot of the play, Polyeucte also relates metaphorically to the religious debates of the seventeenth century. A must-read for fans of classic drama

Drame du conflit entre les sentiments passionnés et les dures contraintes du devoir moral et politique, la pièce offre une liberté de ton et une audace formelle que Corneille, pour se conformer aux codes d'une dramaturgie classique en train de se mettre en place, s'attachera par la suite à atténuer conserve l'éclat
The theatre of illusion by Pierre Corneille( Book )
155 editions published between 1639 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,202 libraries worldwide
"In The Theatre of Illusion you'll find buffoonery, chicanery, adultery, murder, flights of fancy, and flights of love. A picaresque hero, Clindor, secretly woos the lovely Isabelle away from his master, Matamore. Isabelle suspects that Clindor seeks the charms of another. And Lyse, the indispensable maid, helps to make it all somehow come right. Pierre Corneille described this dazzling play as an "extravagant trifle" and it is, indeed, filled with an abundance of twists and turns and surprises." "Now this baroque masterpiece has been translated by one of America's finest poets and translators of French, Richard Wilbur."--Jacket
