Daily Dose

From The Secret Agent, by Joseph Conrad


"The conditions of confined space, seclusion, and solitude in a small four-roomed cottage were favourable to his inspiration.  It was like being in prison, except that one was never disturbed for the odious purpose of taking exercise according to  the tyrannical regulations of his old home in the penitentiary."

From Chapter VI
