Croatian term or phrase: rekvijem za javu
Riječ je o naslovu priče. Pada mi na pamet requiem for reality, ali to mi zvuči nekako nemaštovito, prejednostavno...mislim da priča zaslužuje malo "jači" naslov, a mašta me ne služi dovoljno...

Requiem for a Soberness
Explanation:
Hmmm, ovdje je autor parafrazirao naslov filma Requiem for a Dream, rekla bih. :-) Tim slijedom uporabila bih za javu 'soberness' jer može konotirati svašta:
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/Soberness
Upotreba neodređenog člana je namjerna, dakako.
Nije loše ni rješenje iz Bujasova rječnika: grim reality, sober reality.

Dakako, Nevenchi, nadam se da prevodite priču i da ćete moći ocijeniti odgovara li moj prijedlog onome 'što je pisac htio reći'. ;-)

Notes to answerer
Asker: Hvala Vam puno na ovom prijedlogu! Doista zvuči prikladno, u svakom slučaju prikladnije od mog prvobitnog rješenja (reality). I da, autor je uistinu parafrazirao Rekvijem za snove, iako priče baš i nemaju dodirnih točaka. U svakom slučaju, mislim da bi se Vaš prijedlog mogao dobro uklopiti. Pričekat ću još malo za slučaj da netko ponudi možda još maštovitije rješenje, no ovo mi zvuči baš super. Hvala najljepša :)
