Stevens, Wallace: Feltevés (Theory in Hungarian)

Portre of Stevens, Wallace
Portre of Répás Norbert

Back to the translator

Theory (English)

I am what is around me.

Women understand this.
One is not duchess
A hundred yards from a carriage.
These, then are portraits:
A black vestibule;
A high bed sheltered by curtains.

These are merely instances.

Feltevés (Hungarian)

Vagyok, mi közrefog.

A nők értik ezt.
Száz yardra a hintótól
Egyik sem hercegnő.
Így hát, csak képmások:
Egy éjsötét előszoba;
Egy ágysátorral védett fekhely.

Mindez csupán példa.
