Description
So completely has Cyrano de Bergerac (1619–55) been identified with Edmond Rostand's play and its later adaptations that it is sometimes forgotten that he was a real author, and one of the most colorful figures of the 17th century. Published posthumously in 1657, de Bergerac's pioneering science fiction novel—later an influence on Jonathan Swift and Edgar Allan Poe—depicts a strange utopia where the narrator encounters four-legged creatures with musical voices who condemn him as a monster, and dismiss the philosophical, scientific, and religious certitudes of Earth as trivial. Along the way, Socrates puts in an appearance, the Garden of Eden is rediscovered, and a hymn will be sung in praise of cabbage.
