Doulce correction.[1]

L’homme obstiné doibt estre corrigé
Par doulx propos & persuasion,
S’il a courroux il le doibt allegé[2]
Par quelques motz de consolation,
Non par injure ou rude affection,
Mais mitiguer l’ire au courage joincte.
L’espée on prend (qui faict occision)
Par le pommeau, & non pas par la poincte.

Notes:

1.  This woodcut was used in several other contemporary works (see A. Adams’ edition of the two Corrozet works, 1997, notes lxxxiii). Cf. Erasmus, Adagia, 1.1.2 (Ignem ne gladio fodito), and 3.8.58 (Aliter cum aliis agendum), and Corrozet’s Hecatomgraphie, no. 42 ([FCGa042]).

2.  NB: line 3 should read “S’il a courroux il le doibt estre allegé”.
