A younger guy who's quickly going to the canine in Berlin is packed off by means of his father to a college in a sleepy provincial city. There a super lecture awakens in him a wild ardour for learning--as good as a in particular excessive fascination with the graying professor who gave the controversy. the scholar grows on the subject of the professor, becoming a typical customer to the residence he stocks along with his a lot more youthful spouse. he is taking it upon himself to induce his instructor to complete the good paintings of scholarship that he has been laboring at for years or even bargains to assist him in anyway he can. The professor welcomes the younger man's attentions, not less than on a few days. On others, he rages with out obvious cause or turns clear of his disciple with chilly scorn. The younger guy is baffled, wounded. He can't understand.
But the spouse knows. She is familiar with completely. And a technique or one other she is going to support him to appreciate too.
