Excerpt

EURIMEDON.

Madame: La grandeur des illustres courages
Se remarque bien mieux dans l'oubly des outrages,
Qu'alors que la rigueur de leurs justes arrests
Sur quelque Criminel vange leurs interests:
Ce n'est pas que je vueille authorizer sa faute,
Ou prendre le party d'une audace si haute;
Mais desja son supplice à son crime est uny,
Et s'il est sans espoir il est assez puny.

PASITHEE.

Eh bien qu'il soit ainsi: mais je ne puis comprendre
D'où vous vient pour ce traistre un sentiment si tendre,
Et je ne sçay comment un coeur si genereux
A pour son amitié fait ce choix malheureux?

Author of the Day

Alan Joshua
As a clinical psychologist and parapsychologist, Alan Joshua is fascinated with the human mind and everything that makes it tick. He combined his extensive knowledge with his passion for sci-fi in his action-packed debut fiction novel, The SHIVA Syndrome, which has received rave reviews and has already been nominated for several awards. As our author of the day, we chat with Joshua about the inspiration behind his book, the immense amount of research that went into it and whether or not the human mind is still evolving.
