Summary (From the publisher):

The Cid, [Corneille's] masterpiece set in medieval Spain, is a heroic tragi-comedy charged with incident and youthful passion. It was the first great work of French Classical drama, but although it played to packed houses (and still does at the Comédie Française), it drew such disapproval from the critics that the young Corneille, discouraged, wrote nothing [more] for three years.
