Example text

But no one can protect him, for he refuses to enter a house: he lies by night on hard stone in a tiny ramshackle hut from ancient days, and has no wish for other lodging. Do not think I am exaggerating, but he is so wild that he will not stay in any house. He comes around here every day, as you saw, in great sorrow. No matter how mistreated he is by day, at night he goes to lie down and sleep on bare rock, finding sanctuary in that hut. He lies there at night and leaves in the morning, and never comes back until evening.

Ladies and damsels wept when they learned of it; I cannot describe all their sorrow! The Duke, who loved no man so much, was greatly disturbed by the news. 49 Amadas and Ydoine Throughout beautiful Burgundy there was immeasurably great sorrow; they were greatly distressed. (1979) Now I must tell you how Ydoine had been engaged, against her will and in great sorrow and anguish. She was disturbed and distressed over it, and would rather die than remain alive. There was no lady or maiden in the world so sad and careworn.

They discussed the matter and all agreed to do as she instructed them; they were in complete accord. They were not slow to do what she told them, but began at once to prepare their spells, their equipment, their arts and their various tricks for the day when the Count of Nevers was to lie next to Ydoine. On the day before Ydoine was supposed to be married in high pomp and circumstance, these three who knew all the practices of unnatural magic came in the dead of night when the Count had gone to bed, surrounded by all his people who were deep in slumber.
