Ducas-Hyppolite Son époque -1848

by: Marcelin Frédéric

Hippolyte, poète et ami de jeunesse de Marcelin, voit avant son décès prématuré, ses idéaux brisés par le déroulement des événements politiques décevants de Soulouque à Salnave. Allant au-delà de la mort de son compagnon, Marcelin étend ses considérations jusqu’à la période de la réforme financière opérée par les libéraux sous Saget et dont il critique sévèrement le mode d’exécution et ses retombées.

Avec ce premier livre, Marcelin effectua une entrée remarquable dans la littérature de notre pays. Coup d’essai, coup réussi.

About This Book
On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.
