Cyrano De Bergerac: Act 3, Scene 7 Summary & Analysis

Summary
Analysis
A Monk finds Cyrano and Christian standing outside Roxane’s house. The Monk tells the men he’s looking for the house of Roxane. Cyrano points the Monk toward a distant street, and the Monk thanks the men and moves on.
In a moment of sudden comedic bathos (a shift from the sublime to the vulgar or absurd), the hapless Monk interrupts Cyrano and Christian’s elaborate seduction of Roxane.
