In accordance with Lili Elbe 's last wishes, I have arranged the papers she left behind in the form of this book. It is a veracious life story, recorded by a person whose earthly course assumed the shape of an unparalleled and incredible tragedy of fate, the life story of a person whose afflictions were outside the range of our ordinary ideas.

Lili Elbe s letztem Willen gemäß habe ich ihre hinterlassenen Aufzeichnungen zu diesem Buch gesammelt.

The German doctor whose bold operations enabled the mortally ill and despairing Danish painter Einar Wegener ( Andreas Sparre ) to go on living in complete harmony with the dictates of his nature has approved the book in its German version. At Lili Elbe 's desire, fictitious names have been employed for the persons who figure in her narrative.

Ernesto and Elena gazed silently at their friend.

Ernesto and Elena look upon the friend wordlessly. And then they look onto Andreas , who in this moment is relating his Asti order to Francois with the help of a flurry of gestures. The Sicillian accepts the order, vowing to "bring into the artificial light of day of his vespertine tavern." "I have given up all hope of salvation for him," Grete says, very quietly, "Without a miracle happening..."

Ernesto und Elena schauen die Freundin wortlos an.

Elena interrupted her sharply. "Look here, you're talking of a miracle." Grete regarded her friend inquiringly. "Well, listen. A very good friend of ours is now in Paris . He comes from Dresden . He is a woman's doctor. He rang us up early to-day, shortly after we had spoken to Andreas on the telephone. And then I thought at once: 'If anybody can help Andreas , it is this doctor from Dresden .' And the matter is urgent, as the doctor must return to Germany to-morrow afternoon. I will make an appointment with him this evening."
a1c01p017
Elena interrupts her vividly. "See, you call it ... a miracle. And that reminds me of how strange it is, that we four are reunited, just tonight after such a long time..."
ts-trc01p021
"All right, then come as close as you can, Grete ." Elena whispers. "Now, listen. A good friend of ours is in Paris for a few days. A German. Out of Dresden . A gynecologist. We were supposed to meet him tonight. He rang us up this morning, just after we had spoken with Andreas on the phone. And that immediately reminded me: if someone can help our friend Andreas , it can only be this doctor from Dresden . And the whole thing requires haste. Because the doctor has to return to Germany tomorrow afternoon.

Elena unterbricht sie lebhaft. "Siehst du, du sprichst es aus ... ein Wunder. Und da fällt mir ein, wie seltsam es doch ist, dass wir vier uns gerade heute abend nach so langer Zeit wieder treffen..."

"Gut denn ...

Er klingelte uns heute früh an, kurz nachdem wir mit Andreas im Telefon gesprochen hatten. Und da fällt mir sofort ein: kann jemand unserm Andreas freund helfen, dann nur der Professor aus Dresden . Und die Sache hat Eile. Denn der Professor muss schon morgen nachmittag wieder nach Deutschland zurück.

— Det var mærkeligt, at Du netop skulde bruge det Ord, afbryder Elena hende hurtigt ...... Ved Du, at det er underligt, at vi efter saa lang Tids Forløb skulde mødes netop i Aften? ...... Ernesto og jeg skulde have været et andet Sted, men jeg havde en Følelse af, at vi maatte være sammen ...... Ikke sandt, Ernesto , det sagde jeg ogsaa til Dig?

— Nu skal Du bare høre ...... sæt Dig nærmere hen til mig, fortsætter Elena hviskende, ...... en af vore meget gode Venner er i disse Dage her i Paris , det er en Tysker, han er fra Dresden , og han er Kvindelæge ...... jeg anede ikke, at han var her, men lige efter, at jeg havde telefoneret med Jer, ringede han til mig, og i samme Øjeblik faldt det mig ind, at er der nogen, som kan hjælpe Andreas , saa er det ham ...... Men det haster, for Professoren rejser allerede I Morgen Eftermiddag tilbage til Tyskland . Vi maa i Aften aftale et Møde mellem ham og Andreas .

"Strange that you should use just that word," Elena quickly interrupts her ...... "You know, it is strange that we should meet just tonight after such a long time? ...... Ernesto and I should have been somewhere else, but I had a feeling that we had to be together ...... I told you so, Ernesto , didn't I?"

"Listen to me ...... sit closer to me," Elena continues in a whisper ...... "one of our very good friends is here in Paris just now, he's a German, from Dresden , and he's a women's doctor ......

"You know, Grete , Ernesto , the children and I were supposed to go someplace else tonight." Ernesto nods in agreement. "But, and Ernesto know this as well, I had a feeling telling me: you have to see Grete and Andreas tonight... Especially tonight..."

"True," Ernesto says enthusiastically not letting his eyes off Andreas , who is still standing at the bar, apparently waiting for the "unprecedented" Sicilian

Ernesto nods in assent.

Grete made a listless movement with her hand. "Dearest Elena , it is useless. Andreas won't see any more doctors."
a1c01p018
I want to arrange a rendezvous with him tonight ..." Grete acknowledges the optimism emanating from Elena 's gaze with nothing but a tired motion of the hand. "Dearest Elena , don't bother yourself. It won't do any good. It is useless. Believe me. Andreas does not want to see any more doctors. He's had enough of them. Oh, who haven't we seen. No... No... I can understand him quite well if he now swears faithfully that he doesn't want another medical examination. The poor man."
ts-trc01p027
Jch will noch heute abend mit ihm ein Rendez-vous verabreden..." Grete hat nur eine müde Handbewegung für den Optimismus, der aus Elena s funkelnden Blicken herausleuchtet. "Lieb e ste Elena , machen Sie sich keine Umstände. Es nützt nichts. ( Es ist zwecklos. ) Glauben Sie es mir. Andreas will keine Ärzte mehr sehen. Er hat genug von ihnen. Bei wem sind wir nicht gewesen ... ( Nein ... nein ... ich kann ihn gut verstehen, wenn er jetzt hoch und heilig schwört, dass er sich nicht mehr untersuchen lassen will. Der Ärmste...." )
tsc01p027
Grete afviser med en mat Haandbevægelse den Optimisme, der lyser ud af Venindens Øjne:
d1c01p019
— Kæreste Elena , det nytter ikke ...... Andreas vil ikke se flere Læger, han har faaet nok af dem ......Tænk, hvor mange han allerede har været hos!

With a tired gesture Grete dismisses the optimism shining out of her friend's eyes:

"Dearest Elena , it's no use ...... Andreas won't see any more doctors, he has had enough of them ...... Just think how many he has seen already!"

Grete hat nur eine müde Handbewegung. »Liebste Elena , es ist zwecklos. Andreas will keine Ärzte mehr sehen.«

Elena seized both Grete 's hands.

Elena took both of Grete 's hands. And Ernesto put his hand on top of theirs . "Just let Elena do her thing," he says almost imploringly.

"Yes, Grete , dearest, you must not disagree now," Elena protests, "whether you want to, or not, you have to agree, and I will ring up the Professor tonight and tell him of Andreas . I have to do that. I know, the doctor will be able to help him.

"Ja, Grete , Liebste, jetzt dürfen Sie nicht widersprechen," begehrt Elena energisch auf, "ob ihr nun wollt oder nicht, ihr müsst diesmal gehorchen, und ich klingele noch heute abend den Professor an und erzähle ihm von Andreas . Das muss ich. Jch weiss, der Professor wird ihm helfen können..."

After that the three of them fall back into silence. Their gaze is on Andreas , who holds dusty bottles against the light, deeply engaged in conversation with Francois . Andreas ' bright voice and the Sicilian 's sonorous murmur waft over them. One appears intent on convincing the other of something.

Grete slowly lit a cigarette. She blew away clouds of blue smoke and stared into the haze.

Grete slowly lights a cigarette. Her way of doing this is very involved. Like a religious act. She does not know. Her large, grey eyes that dominate her gentle, blonde face have now turned inwards. She blows the blue cigarette smoke away from her. She stares into the smoke. She inhales more smoke. And slowly lets it stream out, resuming her stare.

Grete steckt sich langsam eine Zigarette an. Sie hat eine umständliche Art, dies zu tun. Wie eine religiöse Handlung. Sie weiss es nicht.

Men Grete er endnu vaagen, hun sidder med Benene trukket op under sig i den store Seng og stirrer ufravendt paa den sovende ...... Hun ved, hvor alvorligt det staar til med ham, men nu i Nattens trykkende Stilhed bliver hun bange. Hun tænker og tænker ...... Er det rigtigt af hende selv og hendes Veninde, at de vil overtale det stakkels, oprevne Menneske, der nu slumrer saa stille og trygt som et Barn? Hendes Samvittighed lader hende ikke i Fred. Elena sagde jo, at den tyske Læge var en Kapacitet ...... Men hvis han nu alligevel ikke kan gøre noget, saa bliver det Dødsdommen over Andreas ...... saa ved hun, hvad der vil ske ......

But Grete is still awake, she sits with her legs curled up under her in the big bed staring intently at the sleeper ..... She knows how serious things are with him, but now in the oppressive stillness of the night she becomes afraid. She thinks and thinks ...... Is it right for herself and her friend to persuade the poor shaken person who is now sleeping as quietly and safely as a child? Her conscience will not leave her in peace. Elena said that the German doctor was a famous expert in his field ...... But if he cannot do anything anyway then it will be the death sentence over Andreas ...... then she knows what will happen ...... And yet ...... perhaps it is the miracle, the miracle that her life companion, her friend through the good and the bad days, has more and more ardently hoped for.

Hun kom til at tænke paa, hvad en russisk Dame, en af de mange russiske Flygtninge i Paris , en Seerske , nylig havde spaaet dem. Det var lige efter et af de sidste fortvivlede Besøg hos en parisisk Specialist og Andreas var fuldstændig sønderknust. — »Deres Mand skal gaa til endnu en Læge, en, han ikke kender, saa vil alt, hvad han ønsker, gaa i Opfyldelse,« havde hun sagt og set paa Andreas med sine dunkle, profetiske Øjne.
d1c01p037
She thought of what a Russian lady, one of the many Russian refugees in Paris , a seer , had recently foretold them. It was just after one of the last desperate visits to a Parisian specialist and Andreas was completely devastated. "Your husband must go to yet another doctor, one he does not know, then everything that he wants will come true," she had said and looked at Andreas with her dark, prophetic eyes.

When Grete and Andreas were strolling at a later hour along the avenue near which their studio dwelling was situated, she avowed at first cautiously, but afterwards with energy, what she had arranged with Elena . Andreas was beside himself. He stood still in the middle of the road. He would not be examined either by a German or by a French, or by an Indian mountebank. He was through with these bloodsuckers.
a1c01p025
As the hour grew late, Grete and Andreas called a cab for Ernesto and Elena to ride home in. While sauntering down the avenue close to their atelier apartment , she confesses to Andreas , initially with reservations, then more emphatically, what she, Elena and Ernesto decided earlier. Andreas is livid. He stops in his tracks in the middle of the road, stomps his feet, raves and riots like a spoilt brat, disregarding all puddles on the streets to the point that Grete 's silk stockings soon look like a leopard's coat. He calls to all stars in the sky as his witness. The German professor should go to hell, he says, and Elena should accompany him there. He, Andreas , won't be examined by either German or French or Hindoostani mountebank. He professes being done with those butchers of human beings. Grete allows his rioting. She knows this from experience. But as he works himself into a frenzy she grabs his arm. "Now let this be enough. You seem to think that if you document your manliness in this way ... You just end up resembling an hysterical
teenage girl
Regularized form: Backfisch
in your tantrum... You should be ashamed of yourself... Do you understand me?" Andreas stopped, looked Grete from head to toe with his dark eyes. He quaked with agitation and closed the conversation for the day with the harrowing oath – that served to cause Grete breaking out in Homeric laughter: "No twelve German beer cart draft horses will find themselves able to tear me out of my good, wide Louis-Phillipe bed tomorrow morning just to drag me to this strange doctor... Do you believe I've not caused enough ridicule with the French quacks? Now you want a Dresdenite

Als Grete und Andreas zu später Stunde, nachdem sie Ernesto und Elena einen Wagen zur Heimfahrt besorgt hatten, die Avenue hinunterflanieren, in deren Röhe

liegt, gesteht sie anfangs vorsichtig, dann aber mit Nachdruck, was sie mit Elena und Ernesto beschlossen haben. Andreas ist ausser sich. Mitten auf der Strasse bleibt er stehen, stampft mit den Füssen, rast und tobt wie ein ungezogener Junge, kümmert sich um keine Strassenpfütze, dass Gretes Seidenstrümpfe schliesslich wie ein Panterfell aussehen . Alle Sterne des Nachthimmels ruft er zu Zeugen an. Der deutsche Professor möge sich zum Teufel scheren. Und Elena könne ihn begleiten. Er, Andreas , lasse sich jedenfalls weder von einem deutschen noch von einem französischen noch von einem hindustanischen usw. Quacksalber untersuchen. Er sei fertig mit diesen Menschenschindern ... Grete lӓsst Ihn toben. Sie kennt das aus Erfahrung. Als er aber sich in immer heftigere Wut hineinsteigert, packt sie seinen Arm. "So, nun mag es für diesmal genug sein. Du glaubst wohl, dass Du jetzt Deine Männlichkeit dokumentierst ... Einem hysterischen Backfisch gleichst Du in Deinem Wutanfall ... Schämen solltest du di r ch etwas ... Verstehst du mich..." Andreas blieb stehen, sah mit seinen dunklen Augen Grete von oben bis unten an, bebte vor Erregung und schloss für heute die Auseinandersetzung mit dem erschütternden, bei Grete ein wahrhaft homerisches Gelächter erzeugenden Gelübde: "Nicht zwölf wilde deutsche Bierwagengäule werden mich morgen früh aus meinem guten, breiten Louis-Philipp e Bett herausholen, um mich zu einem wildfremden Professor zu schleifen ...

Da Grete og Andreas nogle Timer senere, efter at de havde anbragt Elena og Ernesto i en Vogn, spadserede langsomt ned ad den Avenue, hvor de havde deres Atelierlejlighed , begyndte hun forsigtigt, men indtrængende at fortælle Andreas om Aftalen med Elena .

Han blev ganske ude af sig selv. Midt paa Gaden blev han staaende og stampede som en uopdragen Dreng med begge Fødderne i en Vandpyt uden at tage Hensyn til, at det sprøjtede op paa Grete s Silkestrømper. Han kaldte alle Nattehimlens Stjerner til Vidne paa, at han vilde se den tyske Professor hængt! Og Elena med, for den Sags Skyld! ...... Han agtede ikke at gøre sig til Nar ved at lade sig undersøge af en ny Kvaksalver, enten han saa var fra Frankrig , fra Tyskland eller fra Hindustan ! ...... Han havde faaet nok af disse Blodsugere, af disse Charlataner ......

When Grete and Andreas some hours later, after they had placed Elena and Ernesto in a car, walked slowly down the avenue where they had their studio apartment , she cautiously but earnestly began to tell Andreas about the appointment with Elena .

He became quite beside himself. In the middle of the street he stopped and stamped both his feet in a puddle like an ill-mannered boy without considering that it spattered up on Grete 's silk stockings. He called all the stars of the night sky to witness that he wanted to see the German professor hanged! And Elena too for that matter! ...... He did not intend to make a fool of himself by letting himself be examined by a new quack, whether he was from France , from Germany or from Hindustan ! ...... He had had enough of these bloodsuckers, of these charlatans ......

Als Grete und Andreas zu später Stunde die Avenue hinunterflanieren, in deren Nähe ihre Atelierwohnung liegt, gesteht sie anfangs vorsichtig, dann aber mit Nachdruck, was sie mit Elena beschlossen hat. Andreas ist

He had been ill for many years. Innumerable doctors and specialists had examined him—without result. Now he was utterly tired. Life had become a torment to him.

As the hour grew late, Grete and Andreas called a cab for Ernesto and Elena to ride home in. While sauntering down the avenue close to their atelier apartment , she confesses to Andreas , initially with reservations, then more emphatically, what she, Elena and Ernesto decided earlier. Andreas is livid. He stops in his tracks in the middle of the road, stomps his feet, raves and riots like a spoilt brat, disregarding all puddles on the streets to the point that Grete 's silk stockings soon look like a leopard's coat. He calls to all stars in the sky as his witness. The German professor should go to hell, he says, and Elena should accompany him there. He, Andreas , won't be examined by either German or French or Hindoostani mountebank. He professes being done with those butchers of human beings. Grete allows his rioting. She knows this from experience. But as he works himself into a frenzy she grabs his arm. "Now let this be enough. You seem to think that if you document your manliness in this way ... You just end up resembling an hysterical
teenage girl
Regularized form: Backfisch
in your tantrum... You should be ashamed of yourself... Do you understand me?" Andreas stopped, looked Grete from head to toe with his dark eyes. He quaked with agitation and closed the conversation for the day with the harrowing oath – that served to cause Grete breaking out in Homeric laughter: "No twelve German beer cart draft horses will find themselves able to tear me out of my good, wide Louis-Phillipe bed tomorrow morning just to drag me to this strange doctor... Do you believe I've not caused enough ridicule with the French quacks? Now you want a Dresdenite

liegt, gesteht sie anfangs vorsichtig, dann aber mit Nachdruck, was sie mit Elena und Ernesto beschlossen haben. Andreas ist ausser sich. Mitten auf der Strasse bleibt er stehen, stampft mit den Füssen, rast und tobt wie ein ungezogener Junge, kümmert sich um keine Strassenpfütze, dass Gretes Seidenstrümpfe schliesslich wie ein Panterfell aussehen . Alle Sterne des Nachthimmels ruft er zu Zeugen an. Der deutsche Professor möge sich zum Teufel scheren. Und Elena könne ihn begleiten. Er, Andreas , lasse sich jedenfalls weder von einem deutschen noch von einem französischen noch von einem hindustanischen usw. Quacksalber untersuchen. Er sei fertig mit diesen Menschenschindern ... Grete lӓsst Ihn toben. Sie kennt das aus Erfahrung. Als er aber sich in immer heftigere Wut hineinsteigert, packt sie seinen Arm. "So, nun mag es für diesmal genug sein. Du glaubst wohl, dass Du jetzt Deine Männlichkeit dokumentierst ... Einem hysterischen Backfisch gleichst Du in Deinem Wutanfall ... Schämen solltest du di r ch etwas ... Verstehst du mich..." Andreas blieb stehen, sah mit seinen dunklen Augen Grete von oben bis unten an, bebte vor Erregung und schloss für heute die Auseinandersetzung mit dem erschütternden, bei Grete ein wahrhaft homerisches Gelächter erzeugenden Gelübde: "Nicht zwölf wilde deutsche Bierwagengäule werden mich morgen früh aus meinem guten, breiten Louis-Philipp e Bett herausholen, um mich zu einem wildfremden Professor zu schleifen ... Glaubst du, dass ich mich nicht lächerlich genug vor französischen Quacksalbern gemacht habe? So11 ich mich jetzt auch noch von einem Dresdener Quacksalber auslachen lassen? Kein Wort mehr davon..."

Is what the friends and herself want to convince the poor soul, sleeping childlike next to her, of truly the right thing to do? Can she really do that? Her conscience won't give her peace... Elena had said earlier that this complete stranger was supposedly an expert in his field as a medical practitioner...And if he too knows of no relief for her Andreas , then this could be a death sentence for the friend...Because she knows what will happen, should the German come to the same conclusion as his Parisian colleagues... And yet... And yet... maybe there can be relief, maybe there can be salvation in the stranger's findings. Maybe a miracle was still waiting for Andreas ...

That was what this strange woman had told them, and observed them with crying eyes...

There was nothing wrong with the patient, other than the missing conviction that he was in fact completely healthy and normal... And that was it... Andreas had listened to this baffling insight calmly, and then, when they were back in the street, he declared: "You have to respect this genius of Versailles !

Grete Sparre was an artist of great talents. He was interested much more in her pictures of beautiful, yearning women with dreaming eyes and red, burning lips that called out for kissing and caressing. Those interested him a lot more than his own paintings. Her paintings were stimulating, stirring things up like a scent from the jungles of Paris ... They were an expression of the time... and yet full of passionate devotion...clear in their lines, like an heir to Botticelli and the other primitive Italians... often as if entangled with a painful longing – like with Watteu ... as if the faint echo of a flute of the Greek god Pan was wafting through a Paris salon...

Ihre Bilder wirkten erregend, aufpeitschend wie ein Duft aus den Dschungeln von Paris ... sie waren Ausdruck der Zeit ... und doch voll leidenschaftlicher Hingabe ... rein in Ihrer Linienführung, wie ein Erbe von Botticelli und den anderen primitiven Italienern ... oft wie verrankt mit einem schmerzvollen Sehnen - wie bei Watteau ... als hörte man plötzlich in einem pariser Salon das ferne Echo der Flöte Pans...

Hendes Kunst virkede æggende og hidsende som en Duft fra Paris ' Jungle ...... den var et Udtryk for Tiden, og alligevel fuld af lidenskabelig Hengivelse ...... ren i sin Streg, som en Arv fra Botticelli og de andre primitive Italienere, men ofte med en Tone af smertefyldt Længsel, der mindede om Watteau ......

It was therefore inevitable that Andreas frequently had moments when it seemed as if he were behaving like a traitor towards Grete .

Due to this Andreas often found himself in moments during which he felt like a traitor to Grete , now that he was listening with growing intent to the sweet melodies of death... But he had realized that he could no longer work, no matter how much he tried... And this epiphany was what gave him the excuse, the solace and a feeling of being right, to leave this mortal coil. He was afraid of becoming a burden to Grete ... This thought had been choking him for months, smothering anything happy within him... No, he was no coward... He also did not feel like a martyr... No ... no... But to ever become a burden to his young wife? ... No!

Grete was aware of his thoughts. Yet she suspected that whatever she proposed to offer in the way of new hope would prove futile. There were so many things that bound them together, so many struggles, so many memories, bright and dark, and, perhaps most of all, Lili . For Andreas was, in fact, two beings: a man, Andreas , and a girl, Lili . They might even be called twins who had both taken possession of one body at the same time.

Grete knew his thoughts. And whatever she offered to calm her poor loved one, to give him a renewed sense of hope, she had an inkling it was futile. So many things tied them to each other. So many fights, so many memories, light and dark. And maybe most of all – Lili ...... Lili ? ... Yes... Because Andreas consisted of two beings: of a man, Andreas , and of a girl, Lili . They could be regarded as twins, who had taken hold of one body at the same time.

For Andreas bestod af to Væsener, af en Mand: Andreas , og af en Kvinde: Lili ...... man kunde ogsaa betegne dem som et Par Tvillinger, der begge paa samme Tid havde taget det samme Legeme i Besiddelse. Af Karakter var de meget forskellige, men efterhaanden fik Lili Overtaget over Andreas , saaledes at man altid kunde spore hende i ham, selv naar hun havde trukket sig i Baggrunden — men aldrig omvendt. Medens han følte sig træt og gik omkring med sine Dødstanker, var Lili frisk og livsglad og længtes efter at folde sig ud, ligesom en Larve, der drømmer om en Gang at faa Vinger og blive en broget Sommerfugl.

Grete guessed his thoughts and although she did everything to reassure him and give him new hope, she felt that it was in vain ...... She knew him inside out ...... there was so much that tied them together, so many fights, so many memories, both bright and dark ...... and perhaps most of all Lili ...... Lili ? ...... Yes ......

Grete kannte seine Gedanken. Doch was sie auch aufbot, um ihm neue Hoffnung zu machen, sie ahnte, es war zwecklos . . . So vieles verband sie miteinander. So viele Kämpfe, so viele Erinnerungen, helle und dunkle . . . Und vielleicht am allermeisten – Lili . . . Denn Andreas bestand aus zwei Wesen: aus einem Mann, Andreas – und aus einem Mädchen: Lili . . . Man konnte sie auch Zwillinge nennen, die beide zu gleicher Zeit den einen Körper in Besitz genommen hatten.

For Andreas bestod af to Væsener, af en Mand: Andreas , og af en Kvinde: Lili ...... man kunde ogsaa betegne dem som et Par Tvillinger, der begge paa samme Tid havde taget det samme Legeme i Besiddelse. Af Karakter var de meget forskellige, men efterhaanden fik Lili Overtaget over Andreas , saaledes at man altid kunde spore hende i ham, selv naar hun havde trukket sig i Baggrunden — men aldrig omvendt. Medens han følte sig træt og gik omkring med sine Dødstanker, var Lili frisk og livsglad og længtes efter at folde sig ud, ligesom en Larve, der drømmer om en Gang at faa Vinger og blive en broget Sommerfugl.

Gradually Lili had gained such predominance over Andreas that she could still be traced in him, even after she had retired, but never the reverse. Whereas he felt tired and seemed to welcome death, Lili was joyous and in the freshness of youth.

Slowly Lili was taking over Andreas , in a way that she was still present in him, even if she had withdrawn. But never the other way round. While he was feeling tired and doomed to death Lili was happy and buoyant, and had the happy urge to evolve, like a larva dreaming of receiving wings and becoming a beautiful butterfly.

Grete felt like a protector of this worry-free and helpless Lili . And Andreas felt like a protector of both... Because while Lili hated him, since he was in her way, Andreas liked her more than he did himself and hoped to disappear completely, for her sake.

Grete 's fears had dissipated as she woke from restless sleep a few hour later, and her decision was made.
ts-trc02p001
Als Grete nach einem unruhigen Schlaf wenige Stunden später erwachte, war ihre Angst verschwunden und ihr Entschluss stand fest.
tsc02p001
Da Grete nogle Timer senere vaagnede efter en urolig Søvn, var hendes Angst forsvundet og hendes Beslutning stod fast. I Drømme havde hun set en høj Mandsskikkelse i en hvid Lægekittel og med et ejendommeligt, ret strengt Ansigt — som hun ikke kendte — mildnet af et Smil, der udtrykte en grænseløs Godhed. Manden rakte begge sine Hænder ud imod hende, og hun greb dem med dyb Taknemlighed.
d1c02p001
When Grete woke up some hours later after a broken sleep her fear had disappeared and her decision remained firm. In her dreams she had seen a tall figure of a man in a white doctor's coat and with a strange, rather stern face – whom she did not know – softened by a smile expressing infinite goodness. The man held out both his hands towards her and she grasped them with deep gratitude.

In dreams she had glimpsed a tall, slender, white coated figure: a strange, somewhat stern face – that she did not know, -mitigated by a boundlessly benign smile. The man extended both hands towards her. And with an exclamation of deepest gratitude she had thrown herself into the arms of the stranger.
ts-trc02p002
Im Traum hatte sie eine hohe, schlanke Gestalt, mit in einem weissen Arztkittel bekleidet gesehen: ein seltsames, etwas strenges Gesicht, - das sie nicht kannte, - gemildert durch ein grenzenlos gütiges Lächeln, und beide Hände reichte der Mann ihr entgegen. ( Und mit einem Aufschrei aus tiefster Dankbarkeit hatte sie sich dem Unbekannten in die Arme geworfen. )

The next morning Grete spoke affectionately to him, pointing out lightly that he must call upon Elena if for no other reason than as an act of courtesy. When there he could always find an excuse if he could not bring himself to visit her German Professor .

She rouses Andreas

. She does not show her excitement to her lover. She addresses him kindly, and lays out to him clearly and gaily, that he, if for no other reason, should still go to Elena out of courtesy . There he could still come up with some excuse if he actually did not feel like seeing the German professor . Maybe Elena had not made an appointment with the strange doctor at all. Also, such a man would be swamped with visits, conferences and such things, especially right before departure. The chances of Andreas being examined by him would therefore be rather slim... Grete says all these things with intentional detachment and without additional pressure, lest Andreas resisted...
ts-trc02p003
Sie weckt Andreas . Ihre Erregung zeigt sie dem Geliebten nicht. Sie spricht gütig auf ihn ein, setzt ihm klar und froh auseinander, dass er, wenn nicht aus einen anderen Grunde, so doch aus Höflichkeit zu Elena hingehen müsse. Dort könne er dann immer noch eine Ausrede finden, falls es ihm zuwider sei, ihren deutschen Professor aufzusuchen. Vielleicht habe Elena überhaupt noch keine Verabredung mit dem fremden Arzt getroffen. Ausserdem sei solch ein Mann, noch dazu vor der Abreise, sowieso mit Visiten, Konferenzen und dergleichen sehr besetzt. Die Aussicht, von ihm noch untersucht zu werden, sei also sehr gering ... Dies alles sagt Grete mit gewollter Sachlichkeit und ohne besonderen Nachdruck, damit Andreas keinen Widerstand leiste...
tsc02p003
Hun vækkede Andreas , talte venligt til ham og forklarede ham, at han, om ikke af anden Grund, saa af Høflighed, var nødt til at gaa hen til Elena . Dèr kunde han altid finde paa en eller anden Undskyldning, hvis det stadig var ham saa meget imod at gaa med hen til den tyske Professor ...... Hun sagde det ganske roligt og i en Tone, som om hun ikke lagde særlig Vægt paa det, for at han ikke skulde gøre Indvendinger.
d1c02p002
She woke Andreas , spoke to him kindly and explained to him that he, if for no other reason than out of politeness, had to go to Elena . There he could always think of some excuse if he still disliked the idea of going along to the German professor so much ...... She said it quite calmly and in a tone as if she did not attach much importance to it in order that he should not raise objections.

An hour later he was on his way to Passy , where Elena lived: punctually at twelve o'clock her car stopped in front of the house where the German doctor was staying. While Elena was pulling the bell, Andreas whispered: "Perhaps it will turn out quite interesting to see your German celebrity face to face, as he belongs to a race in whom interest in scientific investigation is so strongly pronounced that this interest—"

Since he belongs to a race that has a quite prominent interest in scientific research that this interest could possibly further the desire in a man to be created in God's image..."

He finds both of them still in their giant, gilded four-poster bed. He has to squat down on the bedside next to Elena . An expansive breakfast for three is quickly prepared. Then Elena deploys the heaviest piece in her arsenal, her irresistible charm, with a fresh, morning smile. And before he knows it, Andreas has hopelessly fallen for it.

Er findet sie beide noch in ihrem riesigen, vergoldeten Himmelbett Schlafzimmer . Er muss sich auf der Bettkante neben Elena sich hinhocken.

Und ehe Andreas sich recht versieht, ist er ihr gnadenlos verfallen.

"You don't have to go for my sake, darling." Elena blathers away with an air of indifference. "But, you know, since the man is already here, we could just indulge him... Right? He likes me a lot by the way... That alone should compel you, right Ernesto ?"

"Von mir aus brauchst du ja nicht hin zu gehen, Liebling," plappert Elena gleichgültig daher, "aber weisst du, da er nun einmal noch hier ist, können wir ihm ja die Freude machen ... Nicht wahr?

Og Elena lagde sine bløde Kvindehænder om hans Hoved, hævede sig op paa Spidsen af sine Styltesko og gav ham hurtigt et hjerteligt Kys paa Munden. Der lød Skridt indenfor, og hun trak sig skyndsomt tilbage. En Tjener aabnede Døren, og forinden de endnu var blevet meldt, kom en høj, slank Herre hen imod dem. Han var i et mørkt, tætsluttende Jakkesæt, der gav hans stramme Elegance et næsten militærisk Anstrøg. Hans Haar var strøget tilbage og laa som en mørk, blank Masse, medens det lille, kort studsede Overskæg havde en let blond Tone.

He was in a dark close-fitting suit that gave his tight elegance an almost military quality. His hair was brushed back and lay like a dark, shiny mass, while the small short-trimmed moustache had a light blond tone.

The Professor stood in front of him, hardly looked at him, and spoke only a few brief words to him. And Andreas followed the professor into an anteroom, where he was told to undress. "Now I feel like a sleepwalker," thought Andreas in a vague and remote manner. He must obey, without questioning. He wanted to say something, and fumbled for German words.

And suddenly the harsh reality touches him again. The Professor is standing in front of him, barely looking at him, speaks only a few, brief words to him. He follows the Professor into a room adjacent to the salon. Possibly the Professor 's study, where the Professor commands him to undress. I am now like a sleepwalker, Andreas thinks, distant and foggy. He has to obey, without his own will... He wants to say something... Looking for German words...
