Posted Image my bad...I meant Gorky not Gogol...is it from any of Gorky's stories?

no and read carefully my post before the last and you know it...and the story contains a lot of topics that are very up to date again (transparency, privacy protection or the missing of this) and this should be enough Posted Image

yes finally Posted Image ...it's such an important novel and e.g 1984 is unthinkable without this work as it's one of the first dystopian novels. And it has many topics that are still or again very important such as people that have to fit their life to maximum industrial efficiency, total transparency of the citizens without any privacy (transparent buildings, total control), which is reflected in the view in the girl's eye (he thinks first that she's not an individual but an empty number), Anyway this meeting leads to a forbidden relationship and later to a rebellion that destroys the system).

then you'd have solved it after five minutes and all my hints were correct and this time I used your clue-regime Posted Image
anyway we can stop then as with two people it's kind of useless...and I guess we had many of the authors all people know and read and several others which are not that everywhere known Posted Image

I don’t care if it’s a sad good-bye or a bad good-bye, but when I leave a place I like to know I’m leaving it. If you don’t you feel even worse. (Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye, an author we forgot Posted Image )

Hey, what's all that talk about stopping this thread ??? Posted Image Nooooo...
I'm back now anyway.... in my opinion it can run further, and who knows maybe even bob1 will join in some time.

Il dort. Quoique le sort fût pour lui bien étrange,
Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.
