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

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

Roman Jakobson
“Ryléiev foi executado aos 31 anos. Aos 36, Bátiuchkov enlouquece. Aos 22 morre Venetínov, e aos 32 Diélvig. Aos 34, Griboiédov é assassinado, Púchkin aos 37 e Liérmontov aos 26. Suas mortes foram caracterizadas mais de uma vez como formas de suicídio. O próprio Maiakóvski comparava seu combate contra a vida cotidiana aos duelos de Púchkin e Liérmontov.”
