I shall never manage, I shall never learn, I thought, and dreamed of freedom. You took great pains with me, kept a close eye—much more than other fathers. Before every test that we wrote in school, you stood at the school gate before school began or in the long break and asked for the most important words, crammed difﬁcult Latin constructions into me yet again, lest I forgot anything. But during the test I sat with my mind as blank as a bare wooden board. You even kept watch over my German, a subject that I enjoyed and got good marks for.
