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!

This formed the backdrop for his coming-of-age mystery, The Firecracker King. As our Author of the Day, Bayan tells us all about it.
