Poet and Dramatist. He studied literature, history, and philosophy. He abandoned his studies after his first book of poems was published. He gained a major success with his play "Romanesque" in 1894. His greatest work, "Cyrano de Bergerac," was first presented on stage in 1900. In 1901 he was elected as a member of French Academy. His health was poor and he retired to his family's country estate at Cambon, in the Basque County in Spain. Some of his other works include "Samaritaine," "Princess Lointaine," and "Chantecler," storys from the animal world. His last dramatic poem was about Don Juan.
