Collage 211

Here we are in Volume II, Part one, Chapter XV. Nicolai Rostov has just lost a fortune, gambling with Dolokhov and he returns home to confess what he has just done. He walks into a lively scene. His friend Denisov is at the clavichord singing his own composition called "The Sorceress".

Sorceress, tell me by what art
Thou drawest me to abandoned strings;
What fire has thou instilled in my heart,
What rapture through my fingers sings!
