Example text

And look here—put this letter in the post. BERTA. ] Yes, ma‘am. [She opens the door for JUDGE BRACK and goes out herself. Brack is a main of forty‐five; thick set, but well‐built and elastic in his movements. His face is roundish with an aristocratic profile.  His moustaches are also thick, with short‐cut ends. He wears a well‐cut walking‐suit, a little too youthful for his age. He uses an eye‐glass, which he now and then lets drop. JUDGE BRACK. ] May one venture to call so early in the day? HEDDA.

Now tell me something about your life at home.  ELVSTED. Oh, that is just what I care least to speak about. HEDDA.  Why, weren‘t we schoolfellows?  ELVSTED.  Oh, how dreadfully afraid of you I was then! HEDDA. Afraid of me?  ELVSTED.  For when we met on the stairs you used always to pull my hair. HEDDA. Did I, really?  ELVSTED. Yes, and once you said you would burn it off my head. HEDDA. Oh that was all nonsense, of course.  ELVSTED. —And since then, too—we have drifted so far—far apart from each other.

ELVSTED.  And he, on his side, has made a real human being of me—taught me to think, and to understand so many things. HEDDA. Did he give you lessons too, then?  ELVSTED. No, not exactly lessons. But he talked to me—talked about such an infinity of things. And then came the lovely, happy time when I began to share in his work—when he allowed me to help him! HEDDA. Oh he did, did he?  ELVSTED.  He never wrote anything without my assistance. HEDDA. You were two good comrades, in fact?  ELVSTED. ] Comrades!
