The essay proposes an interpretation of heroism  and vengeance  in Corneille's Cid with regard to the figure of Chimene. Offering a wide range of staging possibilites, the theme of female vengeance has been a recurring  theme in literature since the very beginning of tragedy. Vengeance in Corneille's plays is remarkably vigorous and refers contantly to justice; characters admit their desire of vengeance and labour to fulfill it.
