Absurd Dec 9, 2010

It is absurd to me that they could not find the original German edition, which are available for free on the Internet. Furthermore, it sounds absurd to me to translate a literary work from another translation. The whole story does not make any sense.

Not so absurd... Dec 10, 2010

Hi Guiseppina,
IMVHO this is not so absurd. I think the key to the whole matter is (or may be) contained in the last sentence of the article.
