Из "Океана в конце переулка" Нила Геймана (книгу не читала, цитату нашла случайно, когда искала в сети отзывы об "Иоланте" Гилберта и Салливана, и особенно об этой арии): "I had loved Gilbert and Sullivan since I was three, when my father’s youngest sister, my aunt, took me to see Iolanthe...
I moved from Lewis Carroll to Gilbert and Sullivan.
When you’re lying awake with a dismal headache and repose is taboo’d by anxiety, I conceive you may use any language you choose to indulge in without impropriety…
I loved the sound of the words, even if I was not entirely sure what all of them meant".
