Peter Weiss
“Marat o que aconteceu com nossa Revolução
Marat não queremos mais esperar até amanhã
Marat continuamos sempre gente pobre
e queremos hoje as mudanças prometidas.”
Peter Weiss, The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade

Peter Weiss
“OS QUATRO CANTORES
Pobre Marat em tua casa cercada
estás adiantado um século de nós
Enquanto tine a lâmpada lá fora
e tuas palavras se decompõe
escorre-se em sangue
toda a verdade que aprendeste,”
Peter Weiss, The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade

Roman Jakobson
“O fuzilamento de Gumilióv (1886-1921), a longa agonia espiritual e as torturas físicas levaram Blók (1880-1921) à morte, as privações cruéis e a morte desumana de Khlebnikóv (1855-1922), os suicídios anunciados de Iessiênin (1895-1925) e Maiakóvski (1893-1930). Assim pereceram, no curso dos anos 20 deste século, na idade de 30 a 40 anos, os inspiradores de toda uma geração. E cada um deles teve a nítida e insuportável consciência do irremediável.”
Roman Jakobson, La génération qui a gaspillé ses poètes

Peter Weiss
“MARAT
O que é uma banheira de sangue
perto do sangue que ainda há de correr
Um dia pensamos que algumas centenas de mortos seriam o bastate
depois vimos que mesmo milhares eram insuficientes
E hoje não podem mais ser contados
ali e em todo lugar
em todo lugar
(...)
Simonne
Ouço o clamor dentro de mim
Simonne
Eu sou a Revolução.”
Peter Weiss, The Persecution and Assassination of Jean-Paul Marat as Performed by the Inmates of the Asylum of Charenton Under the Direction of the Marquis de Sade

Vladimir Nabokov
“- Might it console you to know that I expect nothing but torture from her return? That I regard you as a bird of paradise?
She shook her head.
- That my admiration for you is painfully strong?
- I want Van – she cried – and not intangible admiration.
- Intangible? You goose. You my gauge it, you may brush it once very lightly with the knuckles of you gloved hand. I said knuckles. I said once. That will do. I can't kiss you. Not even your burning face. Good-bye, pet. Tell Edmond to take a nap after he returns. I shall need him at two in the morning.”
Vladimir Nabokov, Ada, or Ardor: A Family Chronicle
