Like a beetle tied by the leg, I moved continually round and round my beloved little lodge. I would gladly have stopped there altogether, it seemed ... but that was impossible. My mother scolded me, and sometimes Zinaida herself drove me away.
Как привязанный за ножку жук, я кружился постоянно вокруг любимого флигелька: казалось, остался бы там навсегда... но это было невозможно; матушка ворчала на меня, иногда сама Зинаида меня прогоняла.

No more than the life of a louse, of a black beetle, less in fact because the old woman is doing harm.

The old prisoners could make a pet of a mouse or a beetle strayed out of a hole. Here the unpierceable walls were washed every morning by an automatic sluice.
Прежде узник мог приручить мышь или хотя бы мокрицу – но эти непроницаемые стены мыли каждый день.
