ABSTRACT
The article presents information from the field of drama. Critic George Jean Nathan long ago established the right of the drama critic to leave after the first act. The time has now come for the critic to claim, the right of staying away altogether. After all, deciding what one can do without is one of the major tasks of life, and it can be performed quite rationally. According to the author, just as he could explain why he shall not read the next novel of novelist John Steinbeck, he could explain why he did not see Red Rainbow, Late Love, and Carnival in Flanders. The Strong Are Lonely is a translation of Das Beilige Experiment by Fritz Hochwaelder. Like the same author's Public Prosecutor, which, the author saw, according to him in Vienna, Austria, it is a teasing play because, while Hochwaelder is always stumbling on great themes, he is always stumbling.
