Kozlenko writes performs and television and film scripts. He knows secret agent in the home of affection completely and acknowledged awesome issues: acknowledged the purity of my paintings could outlive the entire fads and models, that it used to be deep, that Sabina was once now not a inventory personality. He plans to jot down the situation. Having as soon as been a musician, he may perhaps comprehend the musical caliber of secret agent. yet for as soon as in my lifestyles i will not get excited, even supposing Kozlenko says everyone is uninterested in fake psychology. yet i'm chuffed in a quiet method as the enterprise relies on Kozlenko's real curiosity and knowing of the booklet. sunlight Barque doesn't stand by myself. I describe the sentiments of Lillian, who at one time attempted to go into existence through violence (Ladders to fireplace) and failed, then through escaping from husband and youngsters into the artist global of Paris (and failed), then via looking nature. it really is Lillian who's drugged via nature yet reveals she can't have relationships (thus they're all sketched in) nor input lifestyles deeply via nature simply because she has first to liquidate the previous, the shadows, the subterranean existence. The characters exist as she sees them (just as Sabina additionally observed her fans partially). The imaginative and prescient from inside of isn't like the target one. Felix Poliak misses the target, rounded description of personality, yet you then wouldn't be inside Lillian. i would like humans to work out the realm as Lillian sees it. it really is relatively diverse from different books. residence of Incest used to be all goals, no longer nature. wintry weather of Artifice an attempt at know-how. the following in sun Barque, nature is gorgeous yet Lillian can't turn into fullyyt one with it. And now we're prepared for the following improvement. The books are interdependent. right here Michael (in teenagers of the Albatross, painfully in love with the incorrect individual) has now withdrawn into unique locations. there is not any ardour simply because Lillian isn't really prepared for it. it's a diversified surroundings. those that come upon sunlight Barque for the 1st time will merely locate dating to nature and to exile. the easy try and take one into Djuna, into Sabina, into Lillian so you see the area as they do used to be a perilous test. For then each person thinks i'm the person who is seeing the realm hence. certain, the passive ardour is an adventure too, essential to Lillian, who used to be a ways too competitive. I provide the foremost whilst I check with medicinal drugs, Golconda as a drug. Lillian is studying passivity (remember her violence in Ladders to fireplace? ) or turning into female. I wrote all this for Felix Poliak, who demanded traditional filling in. Outer truth. I must have made transparent that the adventure starts off with residence of Incest, continuing from the dream outward (Jung). condo of Incest used to be all dream, and all of the characters moved out and in of it. Lillian enters the dream of voyage, of the tropics, and does pop out replaced. All my efforts in writing have been to assert what had no longer been acknowledged, and to do that I occasionally need to pursue a extra indirect and circuitous path. For sunlight Barque I bypassed the reviewers. I despatched no copies to reviewers. I examine that they distorted my paintings and that with out them humans strategy my paintings with way more typical instinct.
