"Of course that is not the whole story, but that is the way with stories; we make them what we will. It’s a way of explaining the universe while leaving the universe unexplained, it’s a way of keeping it all alive, not boxing it into time. Everyone who tells a story tells it differently, just to remind us that everybody sees it differently."

Ovi “bijesni psi” htjeli su da mu orobe pivnicu, da isprazne njegove skupocjene lagve rizlinga, i on je po njima pucao u obrani svog vlastitog rizlinga, koji je nesumnjivo bio njegov vlastiti rizling, ali kada su oni drugi “bijesni psi” (carske i kraljevske doge) u obliku rekvizicije točili i rastakali isto tako njegov rizling (pa čak i tuđu krv, koja je isto tako bila nečije vlasništvo), on nije dakako pucao po predstavnicima carskih I kraljevskih vlasti, jer je to bilo zakonito otimanje rizlinga u smislu pozitivnih zakona o rekviziciji. Gospodin generalni onda, dakako, nije ratovao, nego je kao liferant mesa i masti i rakije zarađivao u onom pokolju koji nije bio - dakako - nikakav “kriminalni pokolj” nego “pravedan rat”, vođen isključivo u tu svrhu da bi takvi majmuni mogli pošteno i rodoljubivo zarađivati! Uopće: kakvi su to “pozitivni zakoni” kojima je jedina osnova protuzakonito nasilje, i zašto gospodin generalni nije pucao protiv protuzakonite rekvizicije svoga rizlinga u ratu nego protiv “bijesnih pasa” koji su zalajali na tu protuzakonitost ratnog stanja uopće i koji su u borbi protiv protuzakonitosti bili zapravo jedini garanti zakonitosti, u višem, moralnom smislu. Jer da se nisu slomili “pozitivni zakonski” okviri ratne pro-tuzakonitosti, gospodin generalni ne bi danas kao predstavnik naše mlade industrije ekspor-tirao u Perziju svoje plehnate lavore i noćne lonce, on ne bi bio “predstavnik naše mlade privrede”, on ne bi predsjedavao ni komorama ni ovom našem elitnom društvu! Za čašu rizlinga četiri krvave glave, sve je to kriminalno, krvavo, moralno bolesno!

Kod stola, spuštene glave, s desnom rukom na dršku brušene čaše, u mislima, potpuno miran, bez ikakvog prizvuka razdraženosti, u svom vlastitom unutarnjem razgovoru, više za sebe, ja sam izgovorio tiho, kao duhom odsutno, da je “sve to kriminalno, krvavo, moralno bolesno”.

Slučajno se dogodilo da je ta nevina fraza moga solilokvija pala u maloj jednoj pauzi između dvije rečenice gospodina generalnog, dakle, u potpunoj tišini, te je baš zbog te potpune tišine svaka moja pojedina riječ naročito dobila na svome značenju.

Petrica Kerempuh is today’s Google image.

Why, you ask? Here …
 
Miroslav Krleža (July 7, 1893 - December 29, 1981) was a leading Croatian and Yugoslav writer and the dominant figure in cultural life of both Yugoslav states, the Kingdom (1918–1941) and the Republic (1945 until his death in 1981). He has often been proclaimed the greatest Croatian writer of the 20th century. Krleža’s formative influences include Scandinavian drama, French Symbolism and Austrian and German expressionism and modernism, with key authors like Ibsen, Strindberg, Nietzsche, Karl Kraus, Rilke and Proust.

Although Krleža’s lyric poetry is held in high regard, by common critical consensus his greatest poetic work is Balade Petrice Kerempuha (Ballads of Petrica Kerempuh), a visionary compendium of Golgotha Croatica, spanning more than five centuries and centred around the figure of plebeian prophet Petrica Kerempuh, a sort of Croatian Till Eulenspiegel.

tagged as: well it's neither July 7 today nor am i currently reading Ballads of Petrica Kerempuh;  but i am rereading a book of his;  so i am overwhelemed with Krleža emotions that need expressing;  and reblogging this is a form of expressing them;

"Noću, u intimnom, poluglasnom razgovoru sa samim sobom, nikako ne mogu zapravo logički opravdati zašto se u posljednje vrijeme toliko uzrujavam zbog ljudske gluposti."
