AMATEURS
(Amatorki)
by Elfriede Jelinek

For me “Amateurs” is a kind of landscape. The world: a place where the sun rises and sets. Rays stab the back of seamstresses covered with a factory sweat. The nature: a place where lumberjack comes and cuts a tree. Big logs leave large imprints on his hands. The landscape: a picturesque system consisting of forms of relief and water, vegetation and soils, rocks and atmosphere between her and him. The landscape, like a classic relationship, means harmony of all elements. In case of nature, the time adds beauty; in case of people, it can be different. Humans will become more beautiful, if they are trained in a classical way. Jelinek shows us beautiful women, who think in their simplicity, that it is precisely how this world looks like: that this is the place where the sun rises and sets, and where the ill-treatment cannot happen.
