bloody architects

The light is good; the reading lamps, long-necked;
All doors have keys.  Your modern architect
Is in collusion with psychanalysts:
When planning parents' bedrooms, he insists
On lockless doors so that, when looking back,
The future patient of the future quack
May find, all set for him, the Primal Scene.

Vladimir Nabokov p73 of 'Pale Fire'.

On the subject of Pale Fire, have been enjoying this from El Perro del Mar.
