Pierre Corneille, the French dramatist, was born in Rouen in 1606. After a Jesuit education he worked as Crown Counsel in Rouen, and for many years kept playwriting as his leisure activity. He wrote tragedies and comedies, and his first success came in 1636 with Le Cid, a tragi-comedy which made Corneille’s reputation as a master of serious drama and established the genre known as French classical tragedy. Cinna is an overtly political drama dealing with the nature of absolutism, a highly relevant issue in the France of Louis XIII and Louis XIV.

This is not a great translation, although I admire anyone who is willing to translate Corneille. Just as a note, if you decide to read 17th century French litterature in English - get translations by Richard Wilbur - They are exceptional

An interesting selection of plays by the 17th century French dramatist Corneille. Two, The Cid and Cinna, are Tragi-Comedies, which in modern terminology might be described as melodramas. The last is a fantasy. Only bilingual individuals who have read the original versions can comment on the quality of the translations but I found all these plays to be readable and enjoyable. All plays display some interesting features of 17th century life. The Cid is partly about dueling and the demands of the dying feudal cult of honor. Cinna is an overtly political drama dealing with the nature of absolutism, a highly relevant issue in the France of Louis XIII and Louis XIV. The Theatrical Illusion probably draws on 17th century preoccupations withe occult. An interesting feature of most of these dramas, particularly The Cid and Cinna, is the powerful female characters.
