Samson et Dalila

Camille Saint-Saëns/Ferdinand Lemaire

"They strike ever harder.
It doesn't matter.
They are indefatigable.
They strike ever more precisely, more calmly.
The more they strike, the more he bleeds, the more obvious it is that they must strike, that it is real, that it is right."

from 'Albert from Les Capitales' Marguerite Duras, Van Gennep, 1987
