SATIN'S MONOLOGUE: THE ASSOCIATIONS AND THE IDEAS THEY GENERATE
MetadataShow full item record
The present article attempts to create an intertextual phenomenological link between the praise of man in Satin's monologue and other texts: Antigone by Sophocles (“Numberless are the world’s wonders, but none/ More wonderful than man”), Hamlet by Shakespeare (“What a piece of work is a man! How noble in reason, how infinite in faculty”) and in a negative light with Mayakovsky's The Bedbug (where the poet says that the working class is the highest group of the species), with Merezhkovsky's book The Forthcoming Ham, Cheкhov's The Cherry Orchard and Mikhail Bulgakov's Heart of a Dog.
