THE STORY: Published in 1636, LE CID was held as an ideal work of drama for years by subsequent playwrights. In this tragic coming-of-age story, a young knight is asked to defend his father's honor by challenging his future father-in-law to a duel. Caught between filial devotion and romantic love, LE CID is in an impossible situation, and he solves this dilemma through true heroic action.
