Example text

1611) They journeyed through wood and plain by long stages, from morning to evening, until they were close to their country. Then it happened, I think, that one day they left a city where they had made a stop. The weather was hot and clear and fine; the young lord was delighted to be approaching the country of the beauty with 44 Amadas and Ydoine the bright face, whom he loved more than any living thingÑand she loved him just as much! He was dressed for pleasure, in a fine sleeveless tunic and a long mantle which suited him splendidly.

He had heard that these madwomen believed that they were the Fates, and he was a bit frightened and dismayed; because of the fear and the folly he was very pensive all that night. You may be sure that he felt very little joy. He did not dare take the chance of marrying a wife in such circumstances and it troubled him.

1778) ÒThen another man is to have her? What! Another man will hold my beautiful sweetheart in his power, in his arms, and I who have loved her for such a long time will not! Ó (1784) ÒTrue, dear lord, by my faith. I saw it: the Count of Nevers asked for her the other day in Dijon, whether she wanted it or not. Ó (1792) Amadas heard him, and his heart was troubled and burning with the fever of madness; from this, true insanity rose in him and clouded his brain. His mind was soon at war with itself and all reason left him: there was no one so mad as far as Aleppo.
