HOUELLEBECQ despre singuratate si casatorie

INTERVIEWER What about marriage?

HOUELLEBECQ :I think that there is a sharp contrast for most people between life at university, where they meet lots of people, and the moment when they enter the workforce, when they basically no longer meet anyone. Life becomes dull. So as a result people get married to have a personal life. I could elaborate but I think everyone understands.

INTERVIEWER So marriage is just a reaction to . . .

HOUELLEBECQ To a largely solitary life.

Dintr-un interviu mai vechi din Paris Review, in care recunoaste ca plinge la anumite pasaje din carti:)

(…) that’s what I like best in literature. For example, the last pages of The Brothers Karamazov: not only can I not read them without crying, I can’t even think of them without crying. That’s what I admire most in literature, its ability to make you weep. There are two compliments I really appreciate. “It made me weep,” and “I read it in one night. I couldn’t stop.”

Hmm, sunt de acord cu ce zice despre complimente. Aş mai adăuga unul “It made me think”. Nu sunt convinsă că înţeleg, din păcate, ce vrea să zică despre căsătorie. Mi se pare că ar exista metode mult mai eficiente de a evitat singurătatea…Nu ar fi nici indicat, nici necesar să-ţi legi viaţa de cineva de sex opus, când noi între fete avem mult mai multe de discutat, mai ales la bătrâneţe…

nu m-am gindit niciodata la asta, dar e f adevarat…
