One of the most beloved heroes of the stage, Cyrano de Bergerac is a magnificent wit who, despite his many gifts, feels that no woman can ever love him because of his enormous nose. He adores the beautiful Roxanne but, lacking courage, decides instead to help the tongue-tied but winsome Christian woo the fair lady by providing him with flowery sentiments and soulful poetry. Roxanne is smitten—but is it Christian she loves or Cyrano? A triumph from the moment of its 1897 premiere, Cyrano de Bergerac has become one of the most frequently produced plays in the world. Its perennial popularity is a tribute to the universal appeal of its themes and characters.

This is the first full-length biography of Edmond Rostand in English. It relates the poet's life to his work, showing how Rostand expressed his own character and ideals in his heroes, especially Cyrano. The book throws new light on the origins of Rostand's most famous play, and introduces readers to his other plays, such as Chantecler, thought by many to be his masterpiece. Written for the non-specialist, but with much to offer to specialists too, it portrays Rostand as a sensitive, modest man, who found his sudden fame hard to bear. In spite of periods of depression, however, he continued to write, hoping to continue to inspire the French public with his own idealistic attitude to life through his plays and poetry. Until now, little has been available in English about Edmond Rostand and his work. The author, Sue Lloyd, BA, M.Phil, hopes to inspire non-French speakers with her own enthusiasm for Rostand and his plays. She is best-known for her major new editions of Roget's Thesaurus (Longman, 1982; Penguin, 1984), but has also contributed to various dictionaries, and given talks about words on the BBC World Service. She has also worked in schools in East Africa as a language teache

In Hidden Fields, choices are further examined with respect to various themes. Charles Ford introduces another concept about choices; there are internal choices, and external ones. Now, in the general sense choices are seen as external state-of-affairs and are associated with our bodies, such as an individual act or behavior, so one sees the manifested action. The internal choices stem from our various selves, choices that are made by our souls and spirits, and our feeling and reasoning, respectively. The individual has to think or feel before he/she acts. Charles believes ultimately both internal and external choices need to be in harmony with each other, so better choices can be seen in an individual life. Charles continues to write and strives for excellence in all his poems. He invites the readers into his presence to share and exchange of thoughts and views about life experiences. All readers can be at home with him from simple to complex truths and philosophies about life. Charles wants the readers to discover something about their selves as they read his poems for as human beings we are more similar than difference in our choices. It does not matter what race, culture, or sex differences we have. We are still human being; for we all think, sleep, and dream. And can truly make better choices. Charles hopes all readers can clearly see this in his poems.
