Cyrano De Bergerac Act 4, Scene 2 Summary & Analysis

At dawn outside the city of Arras, the cadets moan with hunger. Captain Carbon walks around the camp, softly calling Cyrano’s name. As Carbon walks around, the army’s resident hunters, the Angler (fisherman) and the Sportsman, return bearing a gudgeon (a small fish) and a sparrow. Furious with the meager amount of food, the cadets mutter that they’re ready to mutiny.
Ironically, even though the French army is supposed to be starving out the city of Arras (i.e., besieging the city), it’s the French themselves who are starving.
