writers of all ages. from Terence, who

is in full swing, the whole world is ;

This is the stage of delirium, in
which they see glorious visions and
move among phantoms. For them
there is only one woman in all the
world. She is a queen, a goddess.
Her faults are virtues, her virtues
Her voice, though it be raucous as

face, her form, are the crown of fe- ?

for her, all the boon they crave of the ;
