"Oggi ho trascinato per la strada le mie gambe e la mia grande stanchezza. Ho l’anima ridotta a una matassa aggrovigliata, e quello che sono e sono stato, che sono io, ha dimenticato il suo nome."
Fernando Pessoa, Il libro dell’inquietudine
Félix Lope de Vega

Félix Lope de Vega

"

At least I have the flowers of myself,
and my thoughts, no god
can take that;
I have the fervour of myself for a presence
and my own spirit for light;

and my spirit with its loss
knows this;
though small against the black,
small against the formless rocks,
hell must break before I am lost;

before I am lost,
hell must open like a red rose
for the dead to pass.

"
H.D., “Eurydice.” (via et-tacendo-dicea)

Marcel Proust, Swann’s Way, 1913. Corrected sheets. Fixing the title. About the first sentence. Correcting the good night kiss.

After being declined by three publishers, Proust signed a contract with Grasset to publish the book at the author’s expense. He soon began to receive galley sheets, which he heavily edited. The bibliotheque National de France offers a video and album of images to take a closer look: here.
