Words are no good

"I could just remember how my father used to say that the reason for living was to get ready to stay dead a long time...When I knew that I had Cash, I knew that living was terrible; that was when I learnt that words are no good, that words don't ever fit even what they are trying to say at.When he was born, I knew that motherhood was invented by someone who had to have a word for it, because the ones that had the children didn't care whether there was a word for it or not ...

My aloneness had to be violated over and over each day, but it had never been violated until Cash came.Not even by Anse in the nights.He had a word too, love, he called it but I had been used to words for a long time. I knew that the word was like the others, just a shape to fill a lack.."

William Faulkner     [As I lay dying ]

Cette fois, j'ai décidé de vous faire bosser un peu; si vous vous lancez dans Faulkner, c'est un des livres les plus ramassés, et d'un poids considérable, selon moi. En français , c'est "Tandis que j'agonise", un de ces livres qui changent quelque chose.
