EDMOND ROSTAND (Playwright) b. Apr. 1, 1868, d. Dec. 2, 1918, was a French dramatist whose plays represent the final flowering of the 19th-century romantic tradition. His greatest work, Cyrano de Bergerac (1897; Eng. trans., 1898), was a dazzling popular success and remains a worldwide favorite to this day. Its hero, marred by an enormous nose, rises heroically above his bodily defect in scenes of unparalleled verve, wit, and pathos. One of Rostand's earlier works, The Romancers (1894; Eng. trans., 1899), has been adapted as the highly successful musical comedy The Fantasticks. His other plays include L'Aiglon (The Eaglet, 1900), a sentimental account of the life of Napoleon I's ill-starred son, and Chantecler (1910), in which all the characters are animals. In 1910, Rostand became the youngest writer to be elected to the Académie Française. He died a victim of the widespread influenza epidemic of 1918.
RANJIT BOLT (Translator) Order of the British Empire (OBE) (born 1959) is a British playwright and translator. He was born in Manchester of Anglo-Indian parents and is the nephew of playwright and screen-writer Robert Bolt. His father is literary critic Sydney Bolt, author of several books including A Preface to James Joyce, and his mother has worked as a teacher of English. Bolt was educated at The Perse School and Oxford University, and worked as a stockbroker for eight years but “I was desperate to escape, any escape route would have done, and translating turned out to be the one.” As well as his theater work he has published a novel in verse, Losing It, a book on translation: The Art of Translation, and a verse translation for children of the fables of La Fontaine, The Hare and the Tortoise. He was awarded the OBE in 2003 for services to literature. Asked about his approach to translating plays, he has said: “I try to follow the rule laid down by perhaps the greatest translator of all, John Dryden, who maintained that a translator should—and I paraphrase—make the version as entertaining as possible, while at the same time remaining as faithful as possible to the spirit of the original.” Bolt has translated or adapted many classic plays into English, most of them into verse. Work includes: The Liar (Old Vic, 1989) from Le Menteur by Pierre Corneille; The Illusion (Old Vic, 1990) from L’Illusion Comique by Pierre Corneille; The Sisterhood, from Les Femmes Savantes by Molière (Chichester Festival, 1991; Round House, Washington DC, 1993); Lysistrata (Old Vic, 1993); The Venetian Twins (Royal Shakespeare Company, 1993); Le Cid (Royal National Theatre, 1994); Tartuffe (Royal National Theatre, 2002; Oregon Shakespeare, 2005); The Miser (Chichester Festival, 1995); Oedipus Rex and Oedipus At Colonus (Royal National Theatre, 1996); The School for Wives, (West End 1996, Utah Shakespeare 2008); The Misanthrope (West End, 1998; Arena Stage, 2002; Merry Wives, the Musical, (Royal Shakespeare Company, 2006); The Waltz of the Toreadors, by Anouilh (Chichester Festival, 2007).
