Eremita

Amigos Recantistas, ao ler Tratado de Versificação, livro de Olavo Bilac e Guimaraens Passos, pude ter uma noção completa das regras necessárias para realizar um verdadeiro soneto alexandrino e gostaria de compartilhá-las com todos.

 

Modigliani drank heavily, used cocaine and hashish, and, a gorgeous hunk of a man despite his modest height of 5 feet 3 inches, fathered an indeterminate number of illegitimate children. 

 

But what do these readers actually think about David Foster Wallace? Isn’t all the postmortem hype confusing and disorienting? Isn’t he the kind of dense novelist who gets touted by stoner twenty- and thirty-somethings? Is liking Wallace just a grad school affectation, like watching Danish art films? Is liking Wallace a fun and cool thing to do because he had a history of substance abuse and underwent electroconvulsive therapy? Or does liking Wallace have nothing to do with grad school or stories of Genius in Its Byronic Youth and everything to do with patience and an earnest desire to be a better human being? I think so. (...)

In an artistic climate in which it is fashionable to be distant, coy, and “mysterious”—to sit like a god above your metafictional work and pare your fingernails while the reader struggles on in futility—Wallace is something of a relief: warm, vulnerable, self-effacing. He wrote with a big-hearted curiosity about the world around him; if anything, that’s extremely charming.

 

Barthes replied. “As far as methodology is concerned, I have no opinion. But if you’re talking about work habits . . . ”As he recounts his routines, we discover that the openness of his intellectual style is predicated on the exactness of his procedure. After describing in detail his preference for fountain pens over felt-tip or ballpoint, after recounting his experiments with the electric typewriter at the suggestion of Philippe Sollers, after detailing how he organizes his workplace and schedule in Paris and in the provinces, Barthes tells Rambures about his index-card system, which is based on slips of paper precisely one-quarter the size of a usual page: “At least that’s how they were until the day standards were readjusted within the framework of European unification (in my opinion, one of the cruelest blows of the Common Market).”
