Yeats (1865~1939) Speech after long silence; it is right, All other lovers being estranged or dead, Unfriendly lamplight hid under its shade, The curtains drawn upon unfriendly night, That we descant and yet again descant Upon the supreme theme of Art and Song: Bodily decrepitude is wisdom; young We loved each other and were ignorant. 한참 침묵이 흐른 뒤에 하는 말, 그래 맞어 다른 애인은 모두 멀어졌거나 죽었고 무정한 남포불은 드림막에 숨어버렸으며 커튼은 무정한 밤에 쳐졌.. 2021. 6. 12.
One Day I Wrote her Name by Edmund Spencer Amoretti LXXV: One Day I Wrote her Name BY EDMUND SPENSER (1552/1553 ~ 1599) One day I wrote her name upon the strand, But came the waves and washed it away: Again I wrote it with a second hand, But came the tide, and made my pains his prey.

Frailty, thy name is woman! www.youtube.com/watch?v=ij-_iuHxync "O, that this too too solid flesh would melt Thaw and resolve itself into a dew! Or that the Everlasting had not fix'd His canon 'gainst self-slaughter! O God! God! How weary, stale, flat and unprofitable, Seem to me all the uses of this world! Fie on't! ah fie!

Trim thy locks, look cheerfully; Fate's hid ends eyes cannot see. Joys as winged dreams fly fast, Why should sadness longer last? Grief is but a wound to woe; Gentlest fair, mourn, mourn no moe. 울음은 이젠 그만 존 플레처 (1579-1625).. 2021. 1. 1.
꼬리 밟힌 뱀과 성난 여자 "사람한테 꼬리를 밟힌 뱀이 아무리 잔인하고 위험하다 해도 성난 여자에 비할 바는 못되지. 그런 때 뱀이나 여자가 하고자 하는 일이라곤 복수뿐이야." 제프리 초서 Geoffrey Chaucer (1340년대~1400) 《캔터베리 테일즈 The Canterbury Tales》 중 중에서 야바위꾼 탁발수사가 하는 말이다. 독사 꼬리 밟아봤나? 오금이 저린다. (2014. 9. 9) *** 이에 딱 맞는 말이 여자가 한을 품으면 오뉴월에도 서리가 내린다는 표현이다. 그리 살고 싶진 않았다. 의지와 현실은 언제나 갈라진다는 데 비극이 있다. 2020. 9. 22.
