Time passed and after a couple attempts he mad his most famous play, Cyrano de Bergerac. Everyone loved the play and some said it was the best play they'd seen. Edmond's streak didn't stop. He went on to make two more famous plays, L'Aiglon and Chantecler. In 1901, he was the youngest person to ever be elected into the French academy. Getting an honor like that made him be more noticed by everyone. He made more plays, but none of them were noticed like some of his other plays were. He moved to Paris, France where he lived and wrote until sadly, he died.
