    I am just going to ignore screaming about nature and go back to my ordinary, unethreal Neo-romanticists world with realism and surrealism mixed as the back drop - when artists painted screamers! :cat:

    ..and lovers! :p:p

    I'm with you anti, I like the idea of the person screaming rather than hearing it:)

    I always wondered why people said the person was screaming, when he clearly held his hands over his ears. I have never seen anyone scream with his hands over his ears, it seemed unnatural to me.
    To myself I always interpreted it as him hearing a scream, covering his ears to block the noise and his face expressing shock over the incident. I guess I wasn't overthinking things (this time ;)), but that was exactly it.

    Funny, while I'm certain I've never given it long consideration I think I've always assumed he was screaming but often people scream when they hear a loud noise which can be other screaming.

    So I see both.

    What really made me wonder when reading the article was, what made the sky turn suddenly red?

    Wouldn't think that would be too much of a surprise:)

    I guess that depends on the artist's state of mind.:playful:

    Seems as though everyone will have their own conclusion. When I cover my ears from loud noise, I usually close my eyes, too. But everyone is different. :)

    if only... but no, people simply seem to ignore what's written underneath.
    Geschrei -
    ich fühlte das ganze Geschrei durch die Natur.
    Yelling -
    I felt the whole yelling through the nature.
    nothing of a scream. and how long did they take in the British Museum till they found someone "speaking" German ?
    PS: a scream - or Schrei - is ONE voice in ONE specific tonality.
    Geschrei is many different voices at the same time and is in most occasions enervating to the hearer or even inflicting pain.

    Have to assume it's a cognate to English 'shriek'.

    That's where my thoughts were going too: that the pain of nature shrieking all around him was causing him to try to block it out while shrieking in pain himself.

    not too sure, needs interpretation. I always thought shrieking nearer to Gekreische. useless shouting and yelling to each other of old fishwives and hags.
    but there's another interpretation possible for "Geschrei durch die Natur" meaning the noise/shriek/yelling is done BY nature itself.

    That is the way I was interpreting it. Can certainly hear nature screaming now. Wonder what feeling he was trying to express, whether he was already perceiving nature as being in distress or more something really emanating from within.
