From Incident at Heilingestadt near Vienna, a story about Beethoven; "Ludwig van Beethoven was trapped in a prision. It was not a jail in the usual sense with iron bars and rough-spoken guards. He was caught in a prison of silence. Yet it was ot silence devoid of noise. Instead, his world was a cacophony of pounding sounds, garbled clamor and senseless clatter. Had it been total silence, he would have better stood living with such a curse."
