About this author

Edmond Eugène Alexis Rostand was a French poet and dramatist.
Rostand is associated with neo-romanticism, and is best known for his play "Cyrano de Bergerac". Rostand's romantic plays provided an alternative to the naturalistic theatre popular during the late 19th century. One of Rostand's works, Les Romanesques, has been adapted as the highly successful musical comedy The Fantasticks.
Rostand became the youngest writer to be elected to the Académie Française.
