- Cyrano De Bergerac - 653 words
Cyrano De Bergerac The idea that ones outer beauty can be overlooked and the true beauty on the inside can be acknowledged. Beauty is only skin deep, and it is demonstrated in the story of Cyrano de Bergerac. One can see that Roxane looked past Cyranos looks, and looked inside him where she found her love. Can inner beauty transcend outer beauty? It will be evident that people do not look for just an appearance, because looks fade and your personality will be all that is left. In the play the character of Cyrano, is a very witty and intelligent man, but with a rather enormous nose. He had fell in love with this girl Roxane, but was ashamed to proclaim his love for her. When Cyrano finds out ...

Cyrano De Bergerac Cyrano De Bergerac Every generation has its own heroes that display, what they believe to be, ideal characteristics. While each is different in their own way, many of these role models share similar qualities.

If there was ever a figure who would not be denied his sensibilities, it is Cyrano. When lovers admit, "I' ...

- While Reading Cyrano De Bergerac, I Found Myself Often Wondering Whether Or Not Cyrano Had Led A Happy Life Actually, I Never - 864 words
While reading Cyrano de Bergerac, I found myself often wondering whether or not Cyrano had led a happy life. Actually, I never once wondered that, but that is irrelevant, because Cyrano's happiness is the focus of this essay. Was he happy? Truth be told, I cannot say for sure. If we look upon his life, it would seem that he was a bit of a martyr, always sacrificing his happiness for the sake of others. This is probably the case, but I do not believe that he led his life with his happiness as any sort of goal. That will be a defining case in my argument. What I really believe is that he simply did not care about his happiness. In that sense, he did not so much sacrifice it, as he annexed and ...
