TT: Almanac

"The curtain goes up, the lights come on, you're in a room with three walls, and there they are, these servants of art, and all they do is show us how people eat, drink, make love, walk, and wear clothes! And then they try to draw some kind of moral, some nice easy kind of moral, something you wouldn't mind having around the house. You go, they give you the same stuff over and over an over...and it makes me sick!"

Anton Chekhov, The Seagull (trans. Paul Schmidt)
