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

The theatre of illusion by Pierre Corneille( Book )
256 editions published between 1636 and 2015 in 5 languages and held by 1,573 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
