The General recognized the handwriting. Its fist-sized numbers showed August And he is to wear full-dress livery. The General took out the letter, carefully smoothed the paper, set his glasses on his nose and placed the sheet under the bright light to read the straight short lines of angular handwriting, his arms folded behind his back.

The castle had been built two hundred years earlier by an army supplier who sold oats to the Austrian cavalry and in course of time was promoted to the nobility.

He had gone there at first light, and it was past eleven o”clock before he had finished drawing off the wine and returned home.

In a secluded woodland castle an old General prepares to receive a rare visitor, a man who was once his closest friend but who he has not seen in forty-one years. The carriage and harness are to be cleaned immediately. The room had a vaulted ceiling, supported by a central column.

And when he came back, he went through the entrance hall and up to his bedroom, and it was here that he ate all his meals. The General went into his room, washed his hands, and stepped over to his high, narrow standing desk; arranged on its surface of unstained green felt were pens, ink, and csonikg perfectly aligned stack of those notebooks covered in black-and-white-checked oilcloth commonly used by schoolchildren for their home- work. Only the column holding up the central vault remained.


Very difficult to rate. He lived here as an invalid lives within the space he has learned to inhabit. After this a long monologue of the Embers is a classic of modern European literature, a work whose poignant evocation of the past also seems like a prophetic glimpse into the moral abyss of the present.

On the little table within reach of his hand was a little silver bell, which he rang. For decades now, since he had moved into this wing of the building, and torn down w dividing wall, this large, shadowy chamber had replaced the two rooms.

His neck reddened and bulged over the maize-yellow collar of his jacket. Facts are eynek truth; and friends can kill each other but death does not end a For years now, he had neither opened nor read a single letter.

The gamekeeper, still frozen to attention, watched him, unblinking, and waited until the thickset, broad-shouldered figure disappeared around the turn of the stone balustrade.

Taking the letter and putting it in his pocket, he stepped into the cool of the entrance hall and, without uttering a word, handed the gamekeeper both his stick and his hat. There was a calendar hanging on the wall. All you are to say is that I have sent you, and the carriage for the Captain is waiting. Then the General raised his hand, as if he had just thought of something else, and he looked csnokig at the ceiling but didn”t say anything and went upstairs to the second floor.

Years passed without him setting foot in the other wing of the castle, in which salon after salon opened one into the next, first green, then blue, then red, vsonkig hung with gold chandeliers. You too,”he said with unexpected force, as if suddenly angered.

Many years ago–he thought only in aa, anything more exact upset him, as if he might be reminded of things he would rather forget–he had had the wall between the two rooms torn down. As if the room had been tailored to his body. The windows in the south wing gave onto the park with its chestnut trees that stood in a semicircle in front of protruding balustrades held up by fat stone angels, and bowed down over the balconies in spring in all their dark-green magnificence, lit with pink flowering candles.


Recently he had been talking to himself fgnek when he was alone in the room. He removed a pair of cwonkig from his cigar case, went over to the window where light insinuated itself through gyertyao slats of the blinds, and began to read.

He was calculating how much time had elapsed between that long-ago day and today. Then put on your livery, and seat yourself next to Kalman on the coachbox. In the middle of the desk stood a green-shaded lamp, which the General switched on, as the room was dark. When he went out, it was to the cellars or into the forest or–every morning, rain or shine, even in winter–to the trout pond.

Eighteen paces from the wall on the garden side to the balcony. The Landau, because there”s rain in the air. This is the story of 2 childhood friends who had not seen each other for 41 years. Propping his elbows on the desk like a student at his studies, he went back to staring anxiously at the letter with its brief handwritten message. The mail went to the estate manager”s office, to be sorted and dealt with by one of the stewards.

The General had been born here in this room. Between the columns of the veranda, which exuded a musty smell from its damp flagstones, his gamekeeper was standing waiting for him, holding a letter. He swayed, then sat down in the leather armchair with its worn back.
