From Goethe to Metaphasia

"I confess myself as belonging to the linage of those
That from darkness to light aspire."
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

„Ich bekenne mich zu dem Geschlecht,
das aus dem Dunkel ins Helle strebt."

Me confieso del linaje de aquellos
Que de lo oscuro a lo claro aspiran.

Mariano Akerman, Oro y Cenizas (Gold and Ashes), 2001

Metaphasia. An inability to perceive metaphor.
Douglas Coupland, Generation X, 1991.
