Che si dee rimover l’Ignoranza.

Ignorance must be done away with.


Che Mostro questo? Sphinge perche serba.
Faccia di donna, e le sue membra veste
Piume d’augello, e di Leone ha i piede?
Dinota l’ignoranza, che procede
Da tre cagioni; o da intellecto lieve,
O da vaghezza d’i piacer mondani,
O da Superbia, che virtu corrompe.
Ma l’huom, che sa perch’egli nato, a questa
S’oppone; e vincitor felice vive.
