Édition bilingue portugais-français. Ces sonnets sur la souffrance amoureuse ne manquent pas d'élégance . La Renaissance conjugue ainsi la violence de la conquête des Amériques, des guerres de religions, de l'Inquisition et la subtilité des émotions, des sentiments. Camoes, Ronsard, même langage ?

“Love is a fire that burns unseen,
a wound that aches yet isn’t felt,
an always discontent contentment,
a pain that rages without hurting,

a longing for nothing but to long,
a loneliness in the midst of people,
a never feeling pleased when pleased,
a passion that gains when lost in thought.

It’s being enslaved of your own free will;
it’s counting your defeat a victory;
it’s staying loyal to your killer.

But if it’s so self-contradictory,
how can Love, when Love chooses,
bring human hearts into sympathy?”
“Times change, as do our wills, What we are - is ever changing; All the world is made of change, And forever attaining new qualities.” 28 likes
