If I Only Had A Heart

Fig. 1. Paris Bordon - Venus, Mars, and Cupid Crowned by Victory, c. 1550


circonscrire/to circumscribe

To reduce his wretchedness, the subject pins his hope on a method of control which permits him to circumscribe the pleasures afforded by the amorous relation: on the one hand, to keep these pleasures, to take full advantage of them, and on the other hand, to place within a parenthesis of the unthinkable those broad depressive zones which separate such pleasures: "to forget" the loved being outside of the pleasures that being bestows.'
