Example text

KNIGHT: Philte, Let me eat. WETNURSE runs off. He then gets up and pulls a huge slice of Gruyere cheese out of each paper. He suddenly coughs and chokes. 63 [mouth full] : Ehp. Ehp. Bring your breasts over here, bring your breasts over here. Where's she gone? He runs off. YOUNG MAN returns. YOUNG MAN: I saw, I knew, I understood. Here is the main square, the priest, the cobbler, the vegetable stalls, the church portals, the red light, the scales of justice. I can't go on! A PRIEST, a COBBLER, a BEADLE, a WHORE, a JUDGE, and a BARROW-WOMAN advance onto the stage like shadows.

The YOUNG MAN hides his head in his hands. The WETNURSE returns carrying the GIRL under her arms like a parcel. The GIRL is dead. She drops her on the ground where she sprawls out and becomes as fiat as a pancake. The WETNURSE' s breasts are gone. Her chest is completely fiat. At that moment, the KNIGHT enters and throws himself on the WETNURSE, shaking her violently. KNIGHT [in a terrible voice]: Where did you put it? Give me my Gruyere. WETNURSE [brazenly]: Here! She lifts up her dress. The YOUNG MAN wants to run off but he freezes like a paralysed puppet.

The Drug Act turns the right to control a man's suffering over to Public Health inspector-usurpers. This is modern medicine's special claim. It wants to prescribe duty for every man's conscience. All the bleatings of this official charter are powerless to act against this business of consciousness, namely that I am master of my own pain, even more so than death. Every man is the one and only judge of how much physical pain, or again how much mental vacuity, he can honestly stand. Clearsighted or not, there is an insight no sickness can ever take from me which commands the feelings of my physical life.
