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!

Author of the Day

J.T. Brannan
When J.T. Brannan started writing a book about a "secret agent" doing a job for the US government, he had no idea that this was going to be the start of a bestselling series. Today, his Mark Cole books are extremely popular and Brannan a full-time writer (when he isn't teaching martial arts). As our Author of the Day, Brannan reveals how James Bond inspired his work, talks about his years in the Army and gives us a sneak peek in what he is working on right now.
