Most widely held works by Pierre Corneille
Le Cid : a translation in rhymed couplets by Pierre Corneille( Book )
1,152 editions published between 1637 and 2016 in 16 languages and held by 5,527 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
Horace by Pierre Corneille( Book )
481 editions published between 1641 and 2015 in 8 languages and held by 2,288 libraries worldwide
Extrait : ""SABINE : Approuvez ma faiblesse, et souffrez ma douleur ; Elle n'est que trop juste en un si grand malheur : Si près de voir sur soi fondre de tels orages, L'ébranlement sied bien aux plus fermes courages ;""
Polyeucte by Pierre Corneille( Book )
505 editions published between 1643 and 2012 in 10 languages and held by 2,210 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

The theatre of illusion by Pierre Corneille( Book )
157 editions published between 1635 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,048 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
Nicomede : a tragi-comedy translated out of the French of Monsieur Corneille by John Dancer as it was acted at the Theatre-Royal, Dublin by Pierre Corneille( Book )
231 editions published between 1651 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 912 libraries worldwide
Extrait : ""LAODICE - Après tant de hauts faits, il m'est bien doux, Seigneur, De voir encore mes yeux régner sur votre cœur ; De voir, sous les lauriers qui vous couvrent la tête, Un si grand conquérant être encore ma conquête, Et de toute la gloire acquise à ses travaux Faire un illustre hommage à ce peu que je vaux.""
