PARADISE LOST

'Si pour telle beaute nous souffrons tant de peine.
Notre mal ne vaut pas un seul de ses regards ...' (1)
My Helen for several months was the youngest of my aunts, after that the sister of one of my schoolmates whom I had glimpsed at the gateway of the Lycee, and then the popular actresses on the stage of the Comedic Fran~aise to whom I sent letters in verse which were never answered. But did I even expect answers? My love was not of this world, and whether they wished it or not these fair persons belonged to me in my dreams.
One day one of our masters at Rouen gave us as an exercise The Palinode of Stesichorus. `The poet Stesichorus, having reviled Helen in his verses for the woes brought by her upon the Greeks, is struck blind by Venus and, recognizing his error, composes a recantation in which he expresses his regret for having blasphemed against beauty.' Never have I written an exercise with more sincere enthusiasm. The theme of sacrifice for beauty awakened in me such profound echoes that despite my extreme youth I felt shaken and I worked for two hours with an almost painful ardour, as though I had a premonition of how often in the course of my difficult life on this earth I should have cause myself to write the Palinode of Stesichorus.

1 'No cause for wonder,' those venerable elders said 'upon the walls of Troy, seeing Helen pass, `if for such beauty we have suffered so much woe. Our ills are outweighed by a single glance from her. . . '
