Excerpt

sent de feu. Le plafond de la pièce est naturellement très bas et très sombre, il semble vouloir écraser la tête du jeune homme, et étouffer ses élans vers l'idéal. Jacques vient de recevoir la lettre où tous les membres de sa famille ont voulu lui rappeler leur affection inaltérée. Il abandonne pour quelques instants son grand poème La Rédemption des damnés, sur lequel il compte pour faire un pas dans le chemin de la gloire. Il parcourt rapidement les quatre premières parties de l'épître et s'arrête longuement aux dernières lignes tracées par sa chère Jacqueline, qui font allusion «à la belle demoiselle de Sainte-Radegonde...»--Si j'y allais ce soir, se dit-il. Il y a une cérémonie en l'honneur du carême... Elle m'a bien regardé l'autre jour!... Si on voit des rois épouser des bergères, le contraire
