“The best definition of man is a creature who walks on two legs and is ungrateful.” Said Dostoyevsky. This will, surely, be a quote familiar to Eugen Ruge. He was, after all, born in Russia. He’s an expert on Russian literature. And a translator of Chekov. But was Dostoyevsky right? Possibly not. Because I have, in recent weeks, been most surprised by the number of people who’ve told me that they’re dankbar – grateful. Dankbar that they’ve read it, or dankbar that I recommended it to them: the book. By Eugen Ruge – my latest guest on Talking Germany.
