Much honour'd do I hold me in my lady's high behest; And say unto my lady, in this dear night-weed dress'd, To the best armed champion I will not veil my crest; But if I live and bear me well 'tis her turn to take the test.'' Here, gentles, ends the foremost fytte of the Lay of the Bloody Vest. ``Thou hast changed the measure upon us unawares in that last couplet, my Blondel?'' said the King. ``Most true, my lord,'' said Blondel. ``I rendered the verses from the Italian of an old harper, whom I met in Cyprus, and not having had time either to translate it accurately, or commit it to memory, I am fain to supply gaps in the music and the verse as I can upon the spur of the moment, as you see boors mend a quickset fence with a fagot.'' ``Nay, on my faith,'' said the King, ``I like these rattling rolling Alexandrines---methinks they come more twangingly off to the music than that briefer measure.'' ``Both are licensed, as is well known to your Grace,'' answered Blondel. ``They are so, Blondel,'' said Richard; ``yet methinks the scene, where there is like to be fighting, will go best on in these same thundering Alexandrines, which sound like the charge of cavalry; while the other measure is but like the sidelong amble of a lady's palfrey.'' ``It shall be as your Grace pleases,'' replied Blondel, and began again to prelude. ``Nay, first cherish thy fancy with a cup of fiery Chios wine,'' said the King; ``and hark thee, I would have thee fling away that newfangled restriction of thine, of terminating in accurate and similar rhymes---They are a constraint on thy flow of fancy, and make thee resemble a man dancing in fetters.'' ``The fetters are easily flung off, at least,'' said Blondel, again sweeping his fingers over the strings, as one who would rather have played than listened to criticism. ``But why put them on, man?'' continued the King---``Wherefore thrust thy genius into iron bracelets?

The disparities in outcomes for Aboriginal mothers and babies remain a significant priority, not the least because they translate into future health risks for this population. immediate birthing outcomes but is linked to a number of chronic health conditions in later life. The question of whether or not there is a "women's tradition" remains vexing; some scholars and editors refer to a "women's canon" and women's "literary lineage," and seek to "identify the recurring themes and to trace the evolutionary and interconnecting patterns" in women's writing, [5] but the range of women's writing across time and place is so considerable that, according to some, it is inaccurate to speak of "women's writing" in a universal sense: Claire Buck calls "women's writing" an "unstable category." [6] Further, women writers cannot be considered apart from their male contemporaries and the larger literary tradition.

Without a sigh, without a tear, without a word of upbraiding, she attended upon the Queen, whose weak temperament showed her sorrow in violent hysterical ecstasies, and passionate hypochondriacal effusions, in the course of which Edith sedulously, and even affectionately, attended her. ``It is impossible she can have loved this knight,'' said Florise to Calista, her senior in attendance upon the Queen's person. ``We have been mistaken; she is but sorry for his fate, as for a stranger who has come to trouble on her account.'' ``Hush, hush,'' answered her more experienced and more observant comrade; ``she is of that proud house of Plantagenet, who never own that a hurt grieves them.
