-Is [[self-loathing]] the key to understanding [[Julien Sorel]], the anti-hero of ''[[The Red and the Black]]''?[http://jahsonic.wordpress.com/2008/10/04/life-imitating-art-the-model-to-copy/], is the question I asked myself last night.+

-The [[American literary critic]] [[Hayden Carruth]] (who died 10 days ago) seems to confirm my suspicion by comparing him to [[Antoine Roquentin]] of Sartre's ''[[Nausea (novel)|Nausea ]]''. He wrote in 1959 of the way that "[[Roquentin]] has become a familiar of our world, one of those men who, like [[Hamlet]] or [[Julien Sorel]], live outside the pages of the books in which they assumed their characters. . . . It is scarcely possible to read seriously in [[contemporary literature]], [[contemporary philosophy|philosophy]], or [[psychology]] without encountering references to Roquentin's confrontation with the [[chestnut tree]], for example, which is one of the sharpest pictures ever drawn of [[self-doubt]] and metaphysical [[anguish]]."+

-:"Certainly, ''[[Nausea (novel)|Nausea ]]'' gives us a few of the clearest and hence most useful images of man in our time that we possess; and this, as [[Allen Tate]] has said, is the supreme function of art." --Hayden Carruth+

-:"And, of course, that is what ''all'' of this is - all of this: the one song, ever changing, ever reincarnated, that speaks somehow from and to and for that which is ineffable within us and without us, that is both prayer and deliverance, folly and wisdom, that inspires us to dance or smile or simply to go on, senselessly, incomprehensibly, beatifically, in the face of mortality and the truth that our lives are more ill-writ, ill-rhymed and fleeting than any song, except perhaps those songs - that song, endlesly reincarnated - born of that truth, be it the moon and June of that truth, or the wordless blue moan, or the rotgut or the elegant poetry of it. That nameless black-hulled ship of Ulysses, that long black train, that Terraplane, that mystery train, that Rocket '88', that Buick 6 - same journey, same miracle, same end and endlessness."+
