    💧Зворушлива

    Удивительное достижение - так много вложить в такое короткое произведение. Заставляет задуматься про отношения, жизнь в целом и то, что на самом деле происходит в умах и сердцах наших самых близких людей, и о чём мы зачастую даже не догадываемся.

Цитати

  • Seline Bacchusцитуєторік
    Gabriel felt humiliated by the failure of his irony and by the evocation of this figure from the dead, a boy in the gasworks. While he had been full of memories of their secret life together, full of tenderness and joy and desire, she had been comparing him in her mind with another. A shameful consciousness of his own person assailed him. He saw himself as a ludicrous figure, acting as a penny-boy for his aunts, a nervous, well-meaning sentimentalist, orating to vulgarians and idealizing his own clownish lusts, the pitiable fatuous fellow he had caught a glimpse of in the mirror. Instinctively he turned his back more to the light lest she might see the shame that burned upon his forehead.

    `And what did he die of so young, Gretta? Consumption, was it?'

    `I think he died for me,' she answered.

    His soul swooned slowly as he heard the snow falling faintly through the universe and faintly falling, like the descent of their last end, upon all the living and the dead.
