Claude Le Petit in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 76) The young man was dressed in a shabby black suit, which showed holes here and there. The linen band around his neck was in shreds, and the belt of his singlet emphasised his leanness. But he had a piquant face, which was almost handsome despite his pale hunger-dawn complexion. His long, thin lips seemed made for ceaseless chatter and for easy laughter about everything and nothing. His features were never in repose. He grimaced, laughed, mimicked. To this quaint physiognomy a shock of flaxen hair, there strands of which fell over his eyes, added something of peasant candour, which was belied by the cunning expression of his eyes.

Claude Le Petit in the work by Anne Golon
(p. 78) His pale eyes grew dreamy. (...) Thus motionless and distant, his pallid face seemed less youthful. At the corners of his eyelids she discovered those rumpled marks that poverty or debauchery can imprint on a man's face in the prime of life. He was ageless, anyway. His lean body in his too ample clothes seemed ethernal. (...) There was a little fold in the expression of those lips which frightened her, she knew not why. An ironical, slightly ruel wrinkle. But the look in his eyes was tender and gay.
GOLON, Sergeanne. Angélique, the Road to Versailles. London: Pan Books, 1966.
