a Chatelaine Rescuing Salieri's Rep

Eileen features a story by Erica Jeal from the Guardian about Antonio Salieri. In the movie Amadeus, I have identified with Salieri. I disliked the looseness of Mozart.

The interesting thing about history is that when stories and narratives based on lies are told by Western minds, they are inventive. When stories and narratives are told by Eastern minds, they are liars. Amadeus is just another instance of lying and inventiveness. It really bothers me because I don't like lying. But perhaps, it's not really lying.
