Educated in Paris at the College de Beauvais, Cyrano was of grotesque appearance and his long nose was celebrated. Nevertheless, he was a free-thinker, soldier, duellist and author. He was studious and original. When e was three, his family moved to Mauvieres and Bergerac. In 1636, his father sold the Bergerac estate, returning to Paris. Cyrano entered the military and served in the campaigns of 1639 and 1640, including the siege of Arras. He then left the military and returned to Paris to pursue a literary career.The character of Cyrano portrayed in Rostand's Cyrano de Bergerac is a satire on the life of Cyrano. It could also be said that Cyrano was the first French writer of science fiction. His work A Voyage to the Moon: With Some Account of the Solar World was published posthumously in 1656. His other works include The Death of Aggripine (1654), The Pedant Initiated (1654), which influenced Moliere, and The States and Empire of the Sun (1662 Posthumous).
