Scriitori şi deciziile lor

Se spune cǎ nu poţi scrie bine despre pǎdure decât atunci când eşti în zgomotul şi viteza care caracterizeazǎ marile oraşe. Prin analogie (poate forţatǎ), scriitorii care au scris cǎrţile care ne-au ţinut sub vraja lor, ne-au înfuriat sau doar ne-au fǎcut sǎ reflectǎm, nu sunt deloc cei mai fericiţi dintre oameni.  Rândurile bune ies (şi) din conflicte interioare îndelungi sau afecţiuni mentale de tipul anxietǎţii, schizofreniei sau autismului.

Un studiu suedez de acum câţiva ani a arǎtat cǎ cei mai predispuşi la consum de alcool, de droguri, la depresii şi suicid sunt persoanele din câmpurile creative, iar familiile care au un istoric de tulburǎri bipolare sau schizofrenie sunt cele care vor avea, probabil, urmaşi cu înclinaţii artistice. Mai mult, studiul a relevat cǎ scriitorii sunt de douǎ ori mai predispuşi sǎ se sinucidǎ decât celelalte pǎturi ale populaţiei. Cauzele cele mai probabile: singurǎtatea şi accesele de depresie.

Ernest Hemingway

S-a împuşcat cu o armǎ în propria casǎ din Idaho.

“Every man’s life ends the same way. It is only the details of how he lived and how he died that distinguish one man from another.”

Vladimir Mayakovsky

S-a împuşcat în cap.

And so they say-

“the incident dissolved”

the love boat smashed up

on the dreary routine.

I’m through with life

and [we] should absolve

from mutual hurts, afflictions and spleen.

Sylvia Plath

“Death must be so beautiful. To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one’s head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.” (The Bell Jar)

David Foster Wallace

S-a spânzurat.

“The so-called ‘psychotically depressed’ person who tries to kill herself doesn’t do so out of quote ‘hopelessness’ or any abstract conviction that life’s assets and debits do not square. And surely not because death seems suddenly appealing. The person in whom Its invisible agony reaches a certain unendurable level will kill herself the same way a trapped person will eventually jump from the window of a burning high-rise.

Virginia Woolf

S-a înecat.

“Dearest, I feel certain that I am going mad again. I feel we can’t go through another of those terrible times. And I shan’t recover this time. I begin to hear voices, and I can’t concentrate. So I am doing what seems the best thing to do. You have given me the greatest possible happiness. You have been in every way all that anyone could be. I don’t think two people could have been happier ’til this terrible disease came. I can’t fight any longer. I know that I am spoiling your life, that without me you could work.”

Hunter S. Thompson

S-a împuşcat.

“No More Games. No More Bombs. No More Walking. No More Fun. No More Swimming. 67. That is 17 years past 50. 17 More than I needed or wanted. Boring. I am always bitchy. No Fun – for anybody. You are getting Greedy. Act your old age. Relax – This won’t hurt.”

John Kennedy Toole

Asfixiere cu monoxid de carbon.

“You could tell by the way he talked, though, that he had gone to school a long time. That was probably what was wrong with him.”

Yukio Mishima

Seppuku.

“If we value so highly the dignity of life, how can we not also value the dignity of death? No death may be called futile.”

Stefan Zweig

Pact suicidar cu soţia sa- supradozǎ de barbiturice.

“I think it better to conclude in good time and in erect bearing a life in which intellectual labour meant the purest joy and personal freedom the highest good on Earth”.
