Description de l’éditeur
Heaven has bestowed on you a gifted soul. Strive for that which is wanting to you the strength to subdue, to crush for One and you know that One all things else, even the misguiding voice of your heart, the treacherous voice of your judgment. But stay! send leeches to the house of the paraschites and desire them to treat the injured girl as though she were the queen herself. Who knows where the man dwells? The princess, replied Pentaur, has left Paaker, the king’s pioneer, behind in the temple to conduct the leeches to the house of Pinem. The grave high-priest smiled and said. Paaker! to attend the daughter of a paraschites. Pentaur half beseechingly and half in fun raised his eyes which he had kept cast down. And Pentaur, he murmured, the gardener’s son! who is to refuse absolution to the king’s daughter! Pentaur, the minister of the Gods Pentaur, the priest has not to do with the daughter of the king but with the transgressor of the sacred institutions, replied Ameni gravely. Let Paaker know I wish to speak with him.
