I thought that is all, without regret, I go away - an ignoramus! For my godess - my dreams und salvation - I am waiting full of hope! I thought - these mournful hands Will get into oblivion, - I assumed that all these documentations - Are without inspiration. I thought - these tears cost little Now under strain... I understood however - the tigress moans, - Like in the zoo!
Elisabeth Jelinek. Translation, 2018
