PBC0252: despair at rural life

PBC 252 conveys a feeling of hopelessness in rural life. Depending on the point of view of the author—whether close to village life or far removed from it, the PBC can express melancholic despair, for example, of the endlessly even steppe (W177), or a blanket rejection of “our dark peasant country” (W587).
