The Focus Student Editions are designed for French language courses in literature and culture. Prepared with non-native French speakers in mind, these editions include an introduction (in French), the complete work, and linguistic and cultural notes in French, a current bibliography and study questions. Le Cid, considered Corneille's finest work, is a tragicomedy of love and honor in medieval Spain. The 1637 play was enormously popular but controversial in its time, due to its unorthodox dramatic structure, and is now considered a masterwork of French drama.show more
