Prior to order being restored, a meeting of strikers ran out of control. Shop windows were broken all along the town’s main street, with extensive looting.

His idea of French was verb forms and Phaedra, with a reliance on pithy maxims from noted authors. Si jeunesse savait, si vieillesse pouvait – Estienne; C’est de quoi j’ai le plus de peur que la peur – Montaigne; Le coeur a ses raisons que la raison ne connaît point – Pascal; L’histoire, cette vieille dame exaltée et menteuse – de Maupassant. Il ne faut pas toucher aux idoles: la dorure en reste aux mains – Flaubert. Dieu s’est fait homme; soit. Le diable s’est fait femme – Victor Hugo. And so forth.

    El cuento de la criada está fuera del tiempo y fuera del espacio porque puede ser en cualquier tiempo y en cualquier espacio. Margaret Atwood me hizo sufrir y me golpeó con su cruda escritura. Es una ficción que te golpea con realidad y es realidad histórica, realidad emocional y de control. Es una lectura revolucionaria que arma un mundo completo con un montón de signos y símbolos. Además de todo el valor emocional que contiene.
