From His Plays
Translations by Herbert Czermak
LANGUAGE
Ich bin so angegriffen so affektiert.
-Affiziert.
Das wird doch kein großer Unterschied sein!
///
I´ve really made great progress I´m so affected.
--Effective.
Surely this won´t make much difference!
LANGUAGE
Ich hab´ g´schnappt nach Luft, aber sie war so von
Verleumdung verpest´t, daß die Sprach´ der Wahrheit hat
müssen ersticken drin.
///
I was gasping for air, but it was so polluted by slander that the
language of truth had to suffocate in it.
