In ogni Paese della sconfinata Europa, in ogni città, through, casa, stanza, il respiro quieto e sopito è più corto, agitato; are available un’unica notte d’estate afosa e soffocante, questo nostro pace arroventato incendia le notti e confonde i sensi. Quanti, da ambo le parti, solevano scivolare dolcemente dalla sera alla mattina nella nera barchetta del sonno – pavesata di variopinti sogni sventolanti – ora, di notte, ascoltano gli orologi camminare, camminare senza posa lungo los angeles terrificante through da luce a luce, e si sentono consumare e rodere dentro senza tregua dal tarlo delle preoccupazioni e dei pensieri, fino a quando il cuore non si affligge e si ammala. Ora l’umanità tutta è agitata, di notte come di giorno, un impellente, spaventoso stato di veglia sfavilla tra i sensi eccitati di milioni di persone, il destino penetra invisibile dalle migliaia di finestre e porte, e scaccia il sopore, scaccia l’oblio da ogni giaciglio. Più breve è ora il sonno del mondo, più lunghe le notti e più lunghi i giorni.”
