They have already announced it to the soldiers, they say. Evening. The newspapers still won't confirm the rumour. I have just come infromthe streets. It was quiet. And as I write this now, I wonder whether, over there in the Vosges, the joy of victory is spreading through the mountains, it must be good to be there now, uplifting, or whether...

The stuff that camefromthe left was, with the exception of a couple of useful revues, artistically pretty old hat, of a decidedly slavish mentality. A few literati, anxiously orientated to left or right, put together texts which were based on the calculation that a simple lack of intelligence is enough to make plays comprehensible.

Of course, I always knew that any halfway normal German can write a poem - which itself doesn't tell us a thing about the half of them.
