Woman. I. Without. a. Shadow. Diana. Knight. In the photo section of Roland
Barthes by Roland Barthes, Barthes reproduces a nineteenth-century IOU note
from his paternal grandfather to his great-great-uncle. In the comment he places

No novella is as Goethean as Die Frau ohne Schatten [The Woman without a
Shadow]; no play of Calderon's is as Calderonic as Der Turm [The Tower). And if
