1. "Ah laikse askimiz elbet biter bir kisbaharyaz günüGözlerin uçurumlar kaydeder avuçlarimaBir çinar gövdesini bir hamle daha yayarÜç içbükey komodin silah çeker vurulurSen gidersin denklem düser ben ask oldugumu aglarim…Modern bir aliskanliktir ölmek, seni dogasiya seviyorum.BEN SANA DÜZENLI OLARAK TELEFON EDIYORUM!Vincit omnia veritas!Belki inanmayacaksin ama ben bu siiri ellerimle yaziyorumsevgilimÇünkü benim gömdügüm kizlar ara sira bogulurVe laik ask çarpik toplumlastirir, dogurma ne olurSirk deseler tek hirkam var, çatismada biraktimSimdi gidip Beckett okuyacagim, beni de seyret TanrimÖfkemi devletle bir topraga gömüyorumAklimsa çamura saplandi saplanacakSems çeker çikarir kitabi havuzdan, kuruErtan, alsana su tüfegi duvardan benim ellerim islak."

She watches my face. "Is my age a problem for you?""Hell, yeah, seventeen is a problem." I throw my napkin on the table. All of this has been a waste. "Forget it all. This whole thing is off." "I don't act seventeen. I'm very mature for my age.""No way. You're not even old enough to be drinking that wine." I lean in and whisper so no one will overhear. "I'm almost twice your age." "I don't mind. I have daddy issues." She breaks into a huge grin and I hear a girlish giggle. That's when I realize she's fucking with me and has the ability to lie with a straight face. I'll have to remember that for future reference. I'm not amused. "I see I have a comedienne on my hands."
Author: Georgia Cates
45. "T. S. Eliot and Jean-Paul Sartre, dissimilar enough as thinkers, both tend to undervalue prose and to deny it any imaginative function. Poetry is the creation of linguistic quasi-things; prose is for explanation and exposition, it is essentially didactic, documentary, informative. Prose is ideally transparent; it is only faute de mieux written in words. The influential modern stylist is Hemingway. It would be almost inconceivable now to write like Landor. Most modern English novels indeed are not written. One feels they could slip into some other medium without much loss. It takes a foreigner like Nabokov or an Irishman like Beckett to animate prose language into an imaginative stuff in its own right."
Author: Iris Murdoch
