The Chandelier by Clarice Lispector

Drowning in Sensation, or Lost in Translation?

So far as I know, the chandelier of the title is mentioned once only, on page 10. It makes as good a place to start as any:

Katherine Mansfield
“The mind I love must have wild places.”
Katherine Mansfield

Sarah Perry
“Just as the desperate, terminally ill cancer patient often turns to expensive placebos for an imaginary chance at more life, the desperate, terminally alive sad people turn to expensive placebos for a chance to imagine a decent life.”
Sarah Perry, Every Cradle is a Grave: Rethinking the Ethics of Birth and Suicide

Mathias Énard
“Silence comes after everything. Everything is enclosed in silence. Everything is extinguished there, or falls asleep there.”
Mathias Énard, Compass

Anne Michaels
“And she knew for the first time that someone can wire your skin in a single evening, and that love arrives not by accumulating to a moment, like a drop of water focused on the tip of a branch - it is not the moment of bringing your whole life to another - but rather, it is everything you leave behind. At that moment.
Even that night, the night he touched one inch of her in the dark, how simply Avery seemed to accept the facts - that they were on the edge of lifelong happiness and, therefore, inescapable sorrow. It was as if, long ago, a part of him had broken off inside, and now finally, he recognised the dangerous fragment that had been floating in his system, causing him intermittent pain over the years. As if he could now say of that ache: "Ah. It was you.”
Anne Michaels, The Winter Vault
tags: love, pain

Carson McCullers
“Maybe when people longed for a thing that bad the longing made them trust in anything that might give it to them.”
Carson McCullers, The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter
