Notes

  • Epigraph: There is another world, but it is in this one. Paul Eluard Only part of us is sane. Only part of us loves pleasure and the longer day of happiness, wants to live in our nineties and die in peace, in a house that we built, that shall shelter those who come after us. The other half of us is nearly mad. It prefers the disagreeable to the agreeable, loves pain and its darker night despair, and wants to die in a catastrophe that will set back life to its beginnings and leave nothing of our house save its blackened foundations. Rebecca West
