... daisies that look black against her white feet, is certainly the most beautiful thing of the kind in mediaeval prose-work, and the equal of anything of the kind anywhere. And for original audacity few things surpass Aucassin's equally famous inquiry, "En Paradis qu'ai-je a faire?" with the words with which he follows it up to the Viscount.
