La pitié ne coûte que dix gourdes

by: Blaise Edna

Pour sa première parution, Edna Blaise nous offre un recueil de nouvelles d’un raffinement certain avec une touche d’humour qui donne plus d’ampleur à son regard incisif. On devine chez cette jeune jacmélienne très attachée à sa ville, un souffle qui devrait la conduire loin sur les chemins de la littérature. Quatre courts récits où se dévoilent, à travers les vagues d’une écriture jeune et tumultueuse, les tourments d’âmes insatisfaites de leurs lieux.

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.
