Rewriting Life

Soffione (1)

“If life had a second edition, how I would correct the proofs. (*)

This remark was made by John Clare (1793–1864) in a letter to a friend.
He was the English poet who had great financial difficulties and had to work as a farm labourer to support his family. He was placed in an asylum owing to his mental problems and delusions.

(*) “Se la vita avesse una seconda edizione, come vorrei poterne correggere le bozze.”
