SCENE II
(TARTUFFE, LAURENT, DORINE)

TARTUFFE [observing DORINE
Laurent, lock up my hair shirt and my scourge,
And pray for freedom from each carnal urge.
If anyone comes calling, say I have gone
To share my alms with the poor souls in prison.

DORINE [aside
Such affectation and boastful behavior!

TARTUFFE 
What do you wish?

DORINE                              
To say . . .

TARTUFFE [taking a handkerchief from his pocket
Wait! By our Savior,
Please! Before you speak take this handkerchief.

DORINE 
Why?

TARTUFFE   
Because seeing your bosom causes me grief.
Through one's eyes one's soul may be wounded,
And then sinful thoughts may grow unattended.
