    "We were reading one day, for delight, of Lancelot, how love constrained him. We were alone and without any suspicion. Many times that reading made us lift our eyes, and took the color from our faces, but only one point was that which overcame us. When we read of the longed-for smile being kissed by such a lover, this one, who never from me shall be divided, kissed my mouth all trembling. Galahaut was the book, and he who wrote it. That day we read in it no farther."[1]

    "Ne po lexonim një ditë, për kënaqësi, të Lancelot, se si dashuria e shtrëngoi atë. Ne ishim vetëm dhe pa asnjë dyshim. Shumë herë ai lexim na bëri të ngrinim sytë dhe të merrnim ngjyrën nga fytyrat tona, por vetëm një pikë ishte ajo e cila na mundi. Kur lexojmë për buzëqeshjen e përmalluar që po puthet nga një dashnor i tillë, ky, i cili kurrë nuk do të ndahet nga unë, më puthi gojën tërë dridhje. Galahaut ishte libri, dhe ai që e shkroi atë. Atë ditë ne lexojmë më larg. "[1]

    three infernal furies, stained with blood, who had the limbs of women and their action, and were girt with greenest hydras. Little serpents and cerastes they had for hair, wherewith their savage brows were bound

    How many now up there are held great kings who shall stand here like swine in mire, leaving of themselves horrible dispraises." And I, "Master, I should much like to see him ducked in this broth before we depart from the lake." And he to me, "Ere the shore allows thee to see it thou shalt be satisfied; it will be fitting that thou enjoy such a desire." After this a little I saw such rending of him by the muddy folk that I still praise God therefor, and thank Him for it. All cried, "At Filippo Argenti!" and the raging florentine spirit turned upon himself with his teeth. Here we left him; so that I tell no more of him
