The same praises hold true for Edmond Eugene Alexis Rostand.

Curiously, I have never been especially moved by Cyrano'sdeath scene in the film, though clearly others find it profoundly moving. I havealways felt it was laboured, overdirected, overplayed and focused too much on Cyrano himself while the others (particularly Roxanne) are also affected by the tragic revelation at the end. I might also say thatwhile I admired and sympathised with Cyrano, I'm not sure I ever really warmedto him, exactly because there always seemed to be a lack of warmth andcompassion in him.

Cyrano's insistence on independence can be seenon a number of occasions - most notably at the start when he interrupts theperformance of "Clorise", showing confidence in his own abilities andjudgement, and his unwillingness to bow to position and reputation. He iswilling to take on and argue with the entire assembly - including members ofthe "Academie Francaise" who are present, and of course de Guiche, whoseprotege Valvert somewhat unwisely challenges Cyrano to a verbal duel. Cyranojustifies his actions, giving reasons for his dislike of both the play and theprincipal actor, showing to what extent he is a free spirit and thinker.

Love is seen in several shapes and forms in theplay. Valvert is interested in Roxanne because he sees her as a means of socialadvancement, being both beautiful and considered witty and charming. De Guiche,although married to a relative of Richelieu, would happily see Valvert andRoxanne together so that he might ply his influence and embark on a sexualrelationship with Roxanne. This is seen quite clearly later when de Guiche propositionsRoxanne. With Christian the attraction is mainly physical, though Roxanne wouldlike to believe there is more to it and even loses interest in Christian whenshe feels he may not be as bright as she anticipated. Cyrano's love for Roxanneis perhaps the purest - spiritual love and respect for her character, charm andwit. However, Roxanne clearly feels the need of both the physical and the spiritual,so Cyrano feels inadequate and sets about making Roxanne happy by helpingChristian fulfil her requirements.

Cyrano displays great strength of spirit and independencein terms of courage, skill with a sword, and in his literary work. However, loveand a total lack of confidence in his physical appeal to women, leave him opento self-doubt, and he finds himself embroiled in a scheme to win the attentionsof his beloved Roxanne (or I should say "Roxane", to be quite accurate) for the attractive but dim-witted Christian, thereforelosing a great deal of his independence, which he is willing to lose if itleads to Roxanne's happiness.
