Poison In The Blood: The Memoirs of Lucrezia Borgia
“…it is much safer to be feared than loved… fear preserves you by a dread of punishment which never fails.”
XVII, ‘The Prince’
Why may I not go down to the grave with thee?
Would that my fire might warm this frigid ice,
And turn with tears, this dust to living flesh,
And give to thee anew the joy of life!
Then would I boldly, ardently confront
The man who snapped our dearest bond, and cry
"O cruel monster! See what love can do!"
Barbara Bentivoglio Strozzi Torelli,
Italian Noblewoman and Poet
