The self


  • “Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.”
  • “We are all serving a life sentence in the dungeon of the self.”

Cyri Connolly (10 September 1903 – 1974) British literary critic and writer.


  • Meglio scrivere per se stessi e non avere pubblico, che scrivere per il pubblico e non avere più un io
  • Stiamo tutti scontando una condanna a vita nella prigione dell’io.
