Excerpt
Part I: Words with Cupid, and The Task Love, having read the name and title on this book, said: ?It?s war, you declare against me, I see, it?s war?. ?Cupid, don?t condemn your poet for a crime, who has so often raised the standard, you trusted him with, under your command. I?m not Diomede, by whom your mother was wounded, she, carried back to the clear heavens on Mars?s steeds. Other young men often grow cool: I?ve always loved, and if you ask me now, too, what I do, I love. Indeed I?ve taught, as well, by what art you can be won, and what was passion before, is now reason. Sweet Boy, I?ve not betrayed you or my art, and this new Muse unravels no prior work. Let him rejoice in happiness, any eager man who loves and delights in love: let him sail with the wind. But any man who suffers badly from the power of a worthless girl, shouldn?t die, if he understands the help that?s in my art. Why should any lover hang from a high beam, a sad weight, with a knotted rope round his neck? Why should anyone stab himself with cold steel? Lover of Peace, you earn dislike for such hateful death. Let him who?ll die of wretched passion unless he quits it, quit it: and you?ll be the cause of no one?s funeral. And you?re a boy: you?re not fit for anything but play: play then: a sweet dominion suits your years.
