Excerpt from The World's Greatest Books, Vol. 4: Fiction Boges hurried away with malicious pleasure in the near success Of his scheme. He met one Of the gardeners, whom he promised to bring some Of the nobles to inspect a special kind Of blue lily, in which the gardener took great pride. He then hurried to the harem to make sure that the king's wives should look their best, and insisted upon Phaedime painting her face white, and putting on a simple, dark dress without ornament, except the chain given her by Cambyses on her marriage, to arouse the pity Of the Achaemenidae, to which family she herself belonged.
