What Matters in the End

In Wednesday's New York Times, there was a story about a small pocket of Switzerland where Romansh is spoken. The number of Romansh speakers peaked in the early 19th century, but the peak amounted to about 2.2 percent of the total Swiss population.

Bookseller Elisabeth Maranta owns a store in that small pocket of Switzerland. When she was asked why most of the books in Romansh she sells are poetry, she said, "When a patient is dying, he writes only poetry."
