This article analyses the presentation of human suffering by Slovene
dramatist Stanko Majcen, who felt personally called to actively overcome
the pain of the helpless. Ironically, as an individual, he felt
imprisoned by his position in society; which prevented him from personal
engagement with the oppressed people with whom he identified,
so long as he remained in the position of the protected. His weapon
was words alone, which he used to try to awaken a “revolution”. The
gap between words and actions, however, made him feel as though
he were stretched, and ultimately he felt that his life was unfulfilled.
Prispevek je prikaz soočanja Stanka Majcna s trpečimi, ob katerih se
čuti osebno poklican k dejavnemu premagovanju bolečine nemočnih.
Kot družbeno ujet človek tega ne zmore – ostaja na poziciji zavarovanih.
Njegovo orožje so le besede, s katerimi drami »revolucijo«.
Razkorak med besedo in dejanji budi v njem razpetost in neuresničeno
