It's a very well-made play by Maurice Maeterlink. A woman Vanna has sacrificed herself to save the entire village for her to spend one night with an enemy's arms her friend Prinzivalle. But of course, Guido Vanna's husband was against with it........and so the ending was very sad. When one's trust was gone I guess everything was end to distrust and not even realizing that person was doing it simply because of her love to her people. ( One of Ms. Ayn Rand's favorite play)
Bogdan Liviu
“Priveşte-mă bine, Vanna! Am eu aerul unui om care crede că stelele sunt lumânări aprinse pe cer şi că pot stinge strălucirea lunii scuipând într-o fântână unde ea se oglindeşte? Eu nu văd ce urmăreşti, e oare delirul ce urmează nopţii îngrozitoare pe care-ai petrecut-o?”
― Nu e delir, e adevărul!
An impressive play with great themes on individualism and personal choice. A quick and rewarding read.
