Los consegeros de los principes.

TERCETOS.

Dizen que Chiron[1] instruy los hijos
De los heroas [=hoes] , como a’l diestro Aquiles
Y ansi ha de ser quien con el rey biviere.
Fiero en domar y castigar los viles
Y en lo demas propositos muy fijos
Tenga, si pareer piadoso quiere.

Notes:

1. Chiron, the wise centaur entrusted with the education of Achilles, Aesculapius, and other noble figures. Centaurs were creatures combining the physical and mental characteristics of a man with those of a horse. They were wild and uncontrolled, and came to symbolise humanity descending to savagery. Even the civilised Chiron, the educator, retained violent potential.
