What A Great Link.Thank You.regardsTony.
So - are you creepy old guy or cute pink thingie? Or need I ask ;-)
I am Swedish, and all our authors from that period (with one notable exception) are like that.Take a poet like Stagnelius, here is a little sample:Förruttnelse, hasta, o älskade brud, att bädda vårt ensliga läger! Förskjuten av världen, förskjuten av Gud, blott dig till förhoppning jag äger. Hm, I am not competent to translate poetry, so this is a no-frills translation: Decay, hurry, o beloved bride,to our lonesome bed!Denied by the world, denied by God,only for you I retain some hope.(Yes, Decay is his, symbolic, bride, and yes, he hopes for only her now.)You would make a great Swede, existentialist angst is our main cultural export. (And, well, porn in the 60s.)
I enjoyed that. Existentially....You could also existentially check out http://www.blublu.org/sito/video/muto.htmI like that too.
The Matron would be both the creepy old guy and the adorable creature!
