From Confessions: Some Snails’ (Din Destainuiri: A unor Melci)


Din Destainuiri:  A Unor  melci
de George-B (EuZicAsa)

 In vesnicia dintre doua zile
Ne preumblam – deschidem si inchidem usi…

Ostenite oasele se retrag in cochilia somnului,
Trezite doar de vocea marii – ne desteptam –

Iar intr-o zi ne intrebam: Unde mi-e cochilia?

From Confessions: Some Snails’
by George-B (euZicAsa)

Within the infinite time between the days
we wander – open and shut doors…

Tired the bones retreat inside the shell of sleep,
Woken up by the sea’s voice only – we’re getting up –

Then one day we ask: Where is my shell?

This Day in History: Émile Zola Is Put on Trial for Publishing “J’Accuse” (1898)


Émile Zola Is Put on Trial for Publishing “J’Accuse” (1898)

A Jewish officer in the French army, Alfred Dreyfus was falsely convicted of treason in 1894. When officers discovered that the evidence against Dreyfus was false—and that he was most likely a victim of anti-Semitism—they covered it up. Writer Émile Zola exposed the scandal by publishing in a newspaper an open letter titled “J’accuse.” Zola was tried and convicted of criminal libel but fled the country, which was divided by the scandal. What happened to Dreyfus and Zola? More… Discuss
