wow. this story is sad. T-T
read about it whenever you can.
basically its about these characters named Cyrano, Roxanne, and Christian. Cyrano and Christian are in the Army or something. Cyrano is the main person, who is in love with his distant cousin, Roxanne. He’s a man of many talents, but has a unusually big nose, so that prevents him from professing his love to her. Christian is another character, who is also in love with Roxanne. long summary short, he goes to Cyrano to ask him to write these love letters for him, to her, cause he couldn’t do it or something lol. And so what happens is that Roxanne falls in love with Christian cause of the letters, saying that she’s grown to love him for his soul alone, and would still love him if he were ugly. Christian tells Cyrano this, and tries to persuade him to tell the truth about the letters, but he doesn’t. Christian is fatally shot, and in order to keep the image of Christian that Roxanne has of him, Cyrano cannot tell the truth to her.
and there’s more, but the details are in the actual play.
or you can watch the 1990s french film about it. haha
