“We need to live in a state of suspended [damnation]…”

“Like a work of art. […] Detached.”

For those familiar with either Divine Comedy’s “The Certainty of Chance” or Fellini’s “La Dolce Vita”, or both, the words above will sound almost familiar. But while in the original text Steiner’s character is talking about love and transcendence, this shortened and adulterated version is about

waiting

for death

rejecting one’s feelings

as if

death was not to come at all.
