Alphabetarion # Spectator | Isaac Babel, 1894-1940

Toy Theatre

 “For me the whole world is like a gigantic theater in which I am the only spectator without
opera glasses. The orchestra plays the prelude to the third act, the stage is far away as in
a dream, my heart swells with delight—and you want to blind me with a pair
of half-ruble spectacles?”
