Estantes paternas

por jpt, em 12.07.12

Breves passeios pelas livrarias. A penúria impede-me as aquisições - mas também já me habituei, nos últimos dois anos é que me custou. E ainda bem, abandono os escaparates cheios de "literatura lusófona" em nova versão gráfica, de novidades ditas imorredoiras (inflacção de elogios a livros e discos e filmes nos jornais, critérios incriteriosos, para enganar palonços?). E regresso à casa ancestral para desencantar coisas assim - haverá melhor começo? precisaremos das "magníficas" novidades?:

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct to other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good and evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."

(Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities, Pocket Book, 1937)jpt
