Amour courtois - Courtly love
The knight : "My Queen, my Lady, my dearest Love
I cannot imagine a lady more lovely than you.
You please my eyes, my head, and my heart,
More than words can truly express,
And I shall love no other for all my days."
The lady : I am Guinevere,I am the woman you worship without ever truly knowing, the victim of your misguided obsession. I am the courtly maiden forced upon your pedestal, angry that you idolize me as you do, and hating myself for it".
musique : Doulce dame Jolie
