The "Tirade du nez"

This monologue, handwritten by the French playwright Edmond Rostand in 1897, was excerpted from scene IV of Cyrano de Bergerac. In the famous text, Cyrano reacts to the viscount Valver’s mockery of his nose with that which becomes the incarnation of his panache and clever use of self-deprecation. 

Edmond Rostand was not in the habit of preserving his manuscrits. The perfectionist playwright most likely would not have wanted to keep his crossed-out draft pages. Although he would soon become an 'Immortel' of the Académie française, he had doubts about the posterity of his work.

He wrote this document by hand, from memory, and gave it to his friend Louis Barthou. His writing is ample and elegant, and relatively free of cross-outs and alterations.
