Quelque Pasiphaé discrète s'employait derrière le rideau. Riez, braves gens ! Je vous en prie. Moquez-vous ! Notre phantasm comique est là pour ça. Ainsi ne saurez-vous rien de ce qui se déroule sous vos yeux écarquillés : los angeles mise en query l. a. plus méditée, los angeles plus lucide, l. a. plus intrépide, de l'art sans pareil que Freud inventa, et que l'on connaît sous le pseudonyme de psychanalyse.
