Thread com alguns trechos de "A Peste" de Albert Camus. Li diversos artigos falando sobre os paralelos com a situação de hoje, mas senti falta de um compilado de trechos na íntegra que alimentem a possibilidade de comparação + direta entre texto original e contexto atual. Pois:
1- O diretor do hotel não consegue falar de outra coisa. Mas é também porque se sente envergonhado. Descobrir ratos no elevador de um hotel respeitável parece-lhe inconcebível. (...)
1- (...) Para consolá-lo disse-lhe: 'Mas acontece o mesmo a todos!’. ’Justamente’, respondeu-me, ’somos agora como todos os outros.’

#AlbertCamus's 1947 novel "The Plague" is now a bestseller. Penguin is reprinting it to meet demand. But YOU can #StayHome & read the 1957 Nobel laureate's masterpiece for free online! / thread #Covid19 #quarantine antilogicalism.com/wp-content/upl…
Algerian-born #AlbertCamus sets his novel in Oran, Algeria, which had 95 cases of the bubonic plague in 1944. He ends "The Plague" by reminding readers the bacillus never dies. He might've been surprised to learn it reemerged only 50 years later, in 2003. ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/P…
#AlbertCamus was editor-in-chief of the French-resistance newspaper, "Combat," from 1944-47, and his 1947 novel "The Plague" reads simultaneously as an exploration of #quarantine & of the Nazi occupation of France. openculture.com/2017/01/albert…

Muy breve introd. al autor: A. #Camus 1913-1960. Nació en Argelia en una familia humilde, Nobel de Literatura en 1957. Filósofo: renegó del #existencialimo al que se le suele asociar (en realidad, renegó de casi todo). Huérfano desde niño; tuberculoso. Miembro de la Resistencia.
Camus, que eres tuberculoso, hijo. No fumes. (Por cierto, no le mató ni la enfermedad ni el tabaco: murió en un accidente de tráfico).

Some rare #psychology books plus #Camus
On right, there is a photo of a book entitled Ego Function of by Heurvich & 2 others. Heurvich Beck’s first psychoanalytic training case. Instead of practicing psychoanalysis on Heurvich, Beck thought it best 4 them to co-author a study & was booted fr analytic training 4 it. 2/x
Beck cried injustice & blamed analytic institute for kicking him out for not liking research. This story is horse shit. His research was supposed to analysis not dual relationship. #CBTWorks #AaronBeck

Albert #Camus conoció a María Casares en 1944. La actriz española era hija del expresidente del Gobierno republicano, Santiago Casares Quiroga. En una de sus cartas escribió: "Un tiempo vendrá en el que, a pesar de todos los sufrimientos, seremos ligeros, alegres y auténticos".
Su relación fue intermitente y apasionada durante 16 años, a pesar de que el autor nunca se separó de su esposa Francine Faure.
Vivían para el teatro y para ellos, hasta la muerte de Camus el 4 de enero de 1960 en un accidente de tráfico.
A ella le escribió su última carta antes de su muerte: “Hasta pronto, mi preciosa. Estoy tan contento con la idea de volverte a ver que me río mientras te escribo (…) Te mando besos, te abrazo contra mí hasta el martes, cuando volveré a hacerlo”.
