William Faulkner speaks (from The Wild Palms)

Primera edición de la novela (1939)

Al final de la noveleta “The Wild Palms”, después de que Charlotte muere, Harris reflexiona sobre los recuerdos y cómo mantenerlos vivos a pesar del dolor que causan.

“Not could. Will. I want to. So it is the old meat after all, no matter how old. Because if memory exists outside of the flesh it wont be memory because it wont know what it remembers so when she became not then half of memory became not and if I become not then all of the remembering will cease to be. “Yes,” he thought, “between grief and nothing I will take grief.”
