“The Water Hen is expressive, surreal, absurd in later terms, yet utterly ordinary. It is light and witty, pulling down-to-earth ideas thought to be profound. Without being much surprised, they can accept the most absurd things. It is mischievous and sad. Generational conflict, family, the meaning of life, love, death, loneliness, money, revolution – it contains the whole world like a sphere. Far from being serious, this puts clichés and commonplace phrases of life in a different light, in a different refraction. It’s horrible, but there’s no point in taking it seriously. I mean, taking life seriously.”
