Nikos Karouzos, Monolektismoi kai Oligolekta, 1980]
Nyyhterina preloudia enos meta-peripatou me to vlemma strameno stou William Gaddis to Agape Agape:
"No but you see I've got to explain all this because I don't, we don't know how much time there is left and I have to work on the, to finish this work of mine while I, why I've brought in this whole pile of books notes pages clippings and God knows what, get it all sorted and organized when I get this property divided up and the business and worries that go with it..."
(Em. Mbenaki, Athinai, 17:00GMT)
Den einai to 'art pour l'art'

Oute o sosialistikos realismos pou einai aplws politiki
Oute i terpsis taxewn pronomiouhwn
Den einai auta o proorismos twn poiitwn
Gia ti den einai dynaton
Me tin afirimeni mono omorfia

Na natikatatsathoun i na pnigoun twn enormisewn oi wseis
Afou o logos den einai logiki
Afou to kallos den einai aisthitiki
Kai to kallon den einai ithiki
Afou 'un coup de des jamais n'abolira le hasard'

Na gonimopoiithei to warion tis gynaikas i o logos
Afou monon o erwtas ton thanaton nika

"The human heart, beautiful as a seismograph...
Beuty will be CONVULSIVE or will not be at all."
Andre Breton, Nadja
(National Gallery, London, Honore-Victorin Daumier, Don Quixote and Sancho Panza probably before 1866, NG3244, Oil on oak)
"And can you, by no drift of circumstance,
Get from him why he puts on this confusion,
Grating so harshly all his days of quiet
With the turbulent and dangerous lunacy?"
Shakespeare, Hamlet, III, I
(as quoted in Charles Jackson's The Lost Weekend, 1944 (1998)
...egkataleipoume ws ena sinmeio to zwo. Ma omws
to ainigma oloena paflazei stin kardia mas."

"Allilotrogwmaste egw kai o hronos"
(16 June 1904)
"...the anonymous body of the actor into my ear: it granulates, it crackles,
it caresses, it grates, it cuts, it comes: that is bliss."
Roland Barthes, The Pleasure of the Text
(Moni tou Sotiros stin Chora, aka Karyie Camie)
"Whenever I attempt to 'analyze' a text which has given me pleasure, it is not my 'subjectivity' I encounter but my 'individuality', the given that makes my body seperate from other bodies and appropriates its suffering or its pleasure: it is my body of bliss I encounter. And this body of bliss is also my historical subject; for it is at the conclusion of a complex process of biographical, historical, sociological, neurotic elements (education, social class, childhood configuration, etc.) that I control the contradictory interplay of (cultural) pleasure and (non-cultural) bliss, and that I write myself as a subject at present out of place, arriving too soon or too late (this too designating neither regret, fault nor bad luck, but merely calling for a non-site: anachronic subject, adrift."
Roland Barthes, Ibid.
(Baixa Chiado, Lisboa)
"A certain pleasure is derived from a way of imagining oneself as individual, of inventing a final, rarest fiction: the fictive identity. This fiction is no longer the illusion of a unity; on the contrary, it is the theater of society in which we stage our plural: our pleasure is individual- but not personal."
Roland Barthes, Ibid.
(Binliotheque National - i, tou Bataille- 1927-1940)
[Sta diaxyta Ellinika ta erotevomena, N.Karouzos,1984]
"Text means Tissue; but whereas hitherto we have always taken this tissue as aproduct, a ready-made veil, behind which lies, more or less hidden, meaning (truth), we are now emphasizing, in the tissue, the generative idea that he text is made, is worked out in a perpetual interweaving; lost in this tisue -this texture- the subject unmakes himself, like a spider dissolving in the constructive secretions of its web. Were we fond of neologisms, we might define the theory of the text as an hyphology (hyphos is the tissue and the spider's web [weaving])."
Roland Barthes, Ibid.
(The French House, W1D 5BG)
"'The barometer of his emotional nature was set for a spell of riot.'
These words on the printed page, had the unsettling effect no doubt intended, but with a difference. At once he put the book aside: closed it with fingers still between the pages; dropped his arm over the edge of the chair and let it hang, the book somewhere near the floor. This in casehe wanted to look at it again. But he did not need to. Already he knew the sentence by heart: he might have written it himself."
Charles Jackson, The Lost Weekend
"That was Youth with its reckless exuberance when all things were possible pursued by age where we are now, looking back at what we destroyed, what we tore away from that self who could do more, and it's work that's become my enemy because that's what I can tell you about, that Youth who could do anything."
William Gaddis, Agape, Agape
