Pierre Corneille's tragicomedy Le Cid is based on the legend of the same name. It tells the story of Rodrigue and Chimene, whose fathers' feud violently interrupts their love. Though they never disavow their love for one another, revenge is deemed more important to each. Corneille's play sparked much dispute about dramatic method.
