A poetic and initiatory itinerary
Dreamer Guillaume de Lorris’s vision in a dream prophetic of his fate in love. In the middle of an orchard paradise, he discovered the fountain of Narcissus, magic mirror, a rosebush. Fascinated by a button, he comes to pick, but this desire will encounter obstacles more difficult to build the castle of Jealousy. The story ends when the lover is desperate not to take the castle. The allegory summarizes the basic premise of courtesy: it exalts the power of desire, but she refuses to fill the ultimate enjoyment and destroy at the same time.
