Cyrano de Bergerac
She would love me if I were ugly.
Yes. Now then!
SISTER MARTHE (To Mother Marguérite)
Sister Claire has been looking in the glass
At her new cap; twice! (V. 1-2)
That is not the story! You remember
When Beauty said "I love you" to the Beast
That was a fairy prince, his ugliness
Changed and dissolved, like magic…But you see
I am still the same. (V. 309-313)
