Show Excerpt

CYMBELINE.--Fille déloyale, toi qui devrais rajeunir ma vieillesse, tu accumules un siècle sur ma tête.

IMOGÈNE.--Seigneur, je vous en conjure, ne vous faites point de mal par ces emportements; car je suis insensible à votre courroux: un sentiment plus rare étouffe en moi toute peine, toute crainte.

CYMBELINE.--Au delà de toute grâce! de toute obéissance!

IMOGÈNE.--Au delà de l'espérance! au désespoir!... Dans ce sens, au delà de toute grâce!

CYMBELINE.--Tu pouvais épouser le fils unique de la reine.

IMOGÈNE.--Oh! bienheureuse de ne pas le pouvoir: j'ai choisi un aigle, et j'ai évité un faucon dégénéré.

CYMBELINE.--Tu as choisi un misérable; tu voulais asseoir l'ignominie sur mon trône.

IMOGÈNE.--Dites que j'en ai relevé l'éclat.

CYMBELINE.--O âme vile!

Cary Allen Stone
Author Cary Allen Stone is fascinated with what makes criminals tick. In life, things are rarely black or white and readers of his award-winning Jake Roberts novels find themselves rooting for both the hero and anti-hero. Today, Stone reveals to us how an interview with a mother who murdered her six-year- old son made him want to tell his stories from a different perspective, why he doesn't write murder mysteries and how his job as a pilot influenced his writing.
