Excerpt

Servent de peu de chose en ce malheur extréme,
Et qui peut esperer de s'en voir soulagé,
A merité le mal dont il est affligé,

ALCIONNE.

He quoy ma chere soeur, avez vous quelque affaire,
Ou quelque déplaisir que vous me deviez taire;

ELISE.

Ce jeune Cavalier, ce vaillant estranger,
Qui secouant mon Pere en un mortel danger,
Dans ce fameux combat où d'un Prince rebelle,
Rhodes contre Pisandre entreprit la querelle,
Alcandre, Ha! ce beau nom est tout ce qui de luy,
Peut-estre resteroit sur la terre aujourd'huy,
S'il [ne] vivoit encore en l'amoureuse idée,
Que pour ce cher amant ma memoire a gardée,

ALCIONNE.

Et quoy le brave Alcandre?...

ELISE.

Est le Prince charmant,
Que mesme apres sa mort j'ayme si tendrement,
Peut-estre blasmez vous ma foible resistance;
Mais si jamais l'amour

Author of the Day

Gen LaGreca
Gen LaGreca is the award-winning author of several Amazon bestsellers that were all written in different genres - or so it seems. Her first book might be a contemporary medical thriller, the second a murder mystery set in the Old South and the third a sci-fi thriller, but they all share similar themes such as freedom, individuality and being ahead of your time. As our author of the day, LaGreca talks about what she calls the "Gen-genre", reveals her writing habits and chats about why she likes to let her books stew a bit before publishing.
