ABOUT SUE LLOYD

Sue Lloyd gained her honours degree in French at Bristol University and then trained as a teacher. She gained an M Phil degree for her thesis: “Edmond Rostand’s Success: Cyrano de Bergerac” at the University of East Anglia before editing major new editions of Roget’s Thesaurus for Longman and Penguin Books. While continuing to work as an editor and lexicographer, Sue continued her research into Edmond Rostand and his work. The result was her biography of Rostand: The Man who was Cyrano.

 

As a British authority on Edmond Rostand and his work, Sue has contributed talks and/or programme notes to UK productions of Cyrano de Bergerac at the National Theatre and Chichester Festival Theatre, as well as programme notes for the Royal Opera House’s production of Franco Alfano’s opera Cyrano de Bergerac.   Her essays on Edmond Rostand himself, his play Chantecler, and (in preparation) Cyrano de Bergerac, are available to universities and colleges worldwide on the online Literary Encyclopedia, www.litencyc.com. Sue was honoured to take part in the conference at Villa Arnaga, Cambo-les-bains, on the occasion of Chantecler’s centenary and will take part in the 2018 anniversary celebrations there in September.
