Mercenary For Hire Series: Tudor Historical Fiction Novels - Adventure Fiction (Tudor Mystery Trials) has an almost musical rhythm to every line The characters are larger than life passionate and deeplyuman all three main characters are absolutely bad asses in their own wayThis play is a pure delight to be read and re read again and again and I cannot recommend it enough Thoughts about a few English translations Feel free to skipFrench is my first language so when a book is originally written in French I read the original Having read a few books both in English and in French namely Du Maurier and Kerouac of all things I am all too aware of ow easily you can lose subtle things in the translation process and ow that can often result in reading a book that simply doesn t carry the same flavor as the original Cyrano was written in alexandrine verses which is probably a terrifying prospect for any translator especially if you want to keep the tone intact This is a play about love passion sacrifice and strong characters if the translator can t carry those things in is version it just doesn t work So out of curiosity and stubbornness I combed bookstores for not one but THREE different English translations of my favorite play to try and figure out which one comes closest to Rostand s original words Bear in mind that I ave read and seen Cyrano a Confederate Waterloo hundred time and basically know most of it byeartEverybody recommended the Brian Hooker version which I ended up finding a little bland despite it being regarded as the standard English version Hooker was Beyond Words: Daily Readings in the ABC's of Faith (Buechner, Frederick) himself a poet ande tried to keep things as lyrical as The Eatonville Anthology he could but the speeches don t read as fluidly as Iad opedThen I read Carol Clark s version she provides a really interesting introduction and notes on translation oh Penguin Classics editions and all your scholarly extra material ow I love thee which digs into the various challenges of preserving the energy and spirit of the play That version was dynamic than the Hooker translation but a "Few Turns Of Phrases Felt "turns of phrases felt snags in an otherwise smooth ride Good but not uite right I then realized that Anthony Burgess yes THE Anthony Burgess Das Glücksbüro had also translated Cyrano and adapted it for the modern stage Iunted that version down because Burgess is a wizard with words and I just Bodies in the Bog and the Archaeological Imagination had to seeow Daughter of Moloka'i he worked with Rostand s Inis introduction The Santa Cruz Haggadah -
