Excerpt from Short Stories From the Balkans: Translated Into English

On one of these pictures, among the many shape less and nameless monsters that surrounded the poor and holy hermit, moving in a hideously merry dance, there was in one comer of the canvas a great green frog with a bird-shaped beak, and a hugely swollen white goiter. Behind this frog dwelled Satan, and unobserved, through the eyes Of the frog he watched - not holy Saint Anthony kneeling in prayer, but the living body of the Prior and his priestly comrades.

I am obliged to confess that for sometime Satan had been terribly bored in his quiet comer. The Prior was a pious man, and the monks hymned sleepily their breviaries. TO tease them by means of sensual dreams was something altogether too commonplace, indeed Satan himself would be ashamed to do it, and at the same time he wished to amuse himself. Sometimes be closed the prayer book of the Prior ten times right before his nose, but with stoic calm, the Prior would open the book for the eleventh time and find the place Of Scripture he was reading, and put in a book mark.
