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?
