Description

Le Cid
by Pierre Corneille

Corneille wrote his masterpiece Le Cid in 1637. The tragedy is based on on the play Mocedades del Cid (1621) by Guillem de Castro. Le Cid means Al Sayyid in Arabic, which roughly means The Lord). Le Cid is considered Pierre Corneille's finest play and marks the beginning of French tragedy.

Pierre Corneille (6 June 1606 - 1 October 1684) was one of the three great seventeenth-century French dramatists, along with Molière and Racine. He has been called the founder of French tragedy.

Project Bilingual (A division of Wolf Pup Books) is a continuing project making available great original French writers' texts along with their English translation. This edition, which offers after every original language paragraph its translation, makes both grammar and vocabulary checks as painless as possible. Idiomatic forms that could be overlooked can be easily detected.
Furthermore, large paragraphs have been broken down to much smaller units so that the check is as effortless as possible. We do hope that by reading French writers that defined the language itself or whose work permeated the French culture, you will be able to get the maximum benefit from this language series. Although this edition is not a replacement for traditional methods of learning language, it is a very powerful tool to speed up the process once you have attained the intermediate level and beyond.
