"He is a man, He is a child" What does that mean?
Hey guys. I'm working o my Chess Pa Svenska DVD English subtitles. The most challenging song to translate will be Svetlana's new song in Act II, "HAN ÄR EN MAN, HAN ÄR ETT BARN" (He is a man, he is a child). The song never existed in English, and the existing literal translation is very rough.
Can anyone explain what exactly she means when she says "He is a man, he is a child?" It seems like she's saying that Anatoly is both a man, but also still a bit immature, but no other lyrics seem to connect with that idea. Here is the literal translation:
So anyone know what the first line is supposed to mean?
