The reason Chekov and Ibsen have similar themes is because they're both grumpy from the cold and dark up north. Both of 'em should've taken a holiday on Capri or something.

Cheers.

Randall: I know exactly how they felt! GRRRRRRRRRH!

An interesting title for a book!

PI said...

Casdok: somehow has more resonance than Uncle Ernie:)

So much wisdom in such a short phrase :--)

PI said...

Rob: I'm wondering which phrase?

Rob Hopcott said...

'If you are afraid of loneliness, don't marry' :-)

There is such a wealth of meaning open to interpretation implied by that single phrase.

I remember a dialogue when one character said:

"You can't imagine how it feels to return to the loneliness of an empty house."

The other replied:

"But can you imagine how it feels to return to a house that is full of people, yet to feel completely alone."

PI said...

Rob: I can remember that feeling.

Rob Hopcott said...

Me too.

I must weave it into a story one day :-)

PI said...

Rob: that can be therapeutic.
