inspired by the avatar of istpjim as well as a convo i had with gilly on the topic of the character.
i'm speaking of the type of the fictional cyrano de bergerac, not the real person. although obviously the character in the play was supposedly based on the real CDB.
no v.i. is really "allowed" although i suppose you could v.i. the portraits that have been done of him.
also portrayed by steve martin in the rather charming rom-com, roxanne.
any thoughts on the type?
