    About "Emil M. Cioran Emanoil Marcu"

    1. Emil M. Cioran Emanoil Marcu

      Born in 1911 in R inari, a small village in the Carpathian Mountains of Romania, raised under the rule of a father who was a Romanian Orthodox priest and a mother who was prone to depression, Emil Cioran wrote his first five books in Romanian Some of these are collections of brief essays one or two pages, on average others are collections of aphorisms Suffering from insomnia since his adolescent years in Sibiu, the young Cioran studied philosophy in the little Paris of Bucarest A prolific publicist, he became a well known figure, along with Mircea Eliade, Constantin No ca, and his future close friend Eugene Ionesco with whom he shared the Royal Foundation s Young Writers Prize in 1934 for his first book, On the Heights of Despair Influenced by the German romantics, by Schopenhauer, Nietzsche and the Lebensphilosophie of Schelling and Bergson, by certain Russian writers, including Chestov, Rozanov, and Dostoyevsky, and by the Romanian poet Eminescu, Cioran wrote lyrical and expansive meditations that were often metaphysical in nature and whose recurrent themes were death, despair, solitude, history, music, saintliness and the mystics cf Tears and Saints, 1937 all of which are themes that one finds again in his French writings In his highly controversial book, The Transfiguration of Romania 1937 , Cioran, who was at that time close to the Romanian fascists, violently criticized his country and his compatriots on the basis of a contrast between such little nations as Romania, which were contemptible from the perspective of universal history and great nations, such as France or Germany, which took their destiny into their own hands After spending two years in Germany, Cioran arrived in Paris in 1936 He continued to write in Romanian until the early 1940s he wrote his last article in Romanian in 1943, which is also the year in which he began writing in French The break with Romanian became definitive in 1946, when, in the course of translating Mallarm , he suddenly decided to give up his native tongue since no one spoke it in Paris He then began writing in French a book that, thanks to numerous intensive revisions, would eventually become the impressive A Short History of Decay 1949 the first of a series of ten books in which Cioran would continue to explore his perennial obsessions, with a growing detachment that allies him equally with the Greek sophists, the French moralists, and the oriental sages He wrote existential vituperations and other destructive reflections in a classical French style that he felt was diametrically opposed to the looseness of his native Romanian he described it as being like a straight jacket that required him to control his temperamental excesses and his lyrical flights The books in which he expressed his radical disillusionment appeared, with decreasing frequency, over a period of than three decades, during which time he shared his solitude with his companion Simone Bou in a miniscule garret in the center of Paris, where he lived as a spectator and turned in on himself and maintaining an ever greater distance from a world that he rejected as much on the historical level History and Utopia, 1960 as on the ontological The Fall into Time, 1964 , raising his misanthropy to heights of subtlety The Trouble with being Born, 1973 , while also allowing to appear from time to time a humanism composed of irony, bitterness, and preciosity Exercices d admiration, 1986, and the posthumously published Notebooks Denied the right to return to Romania during the years of the communist regime, and attracting international attention only late in his career, Cioran died in Paris in 1995 Nicolas Cavaill s Translated by Thomas Cousineau

    1. Solitude: so fulfilling that the merest rendezvous is a crucifixion.It doesn't matter that Cioran didn't pursue his own nihilognostic solution, that he occasionally dialed up the bile til it verged upon the ridiculous—I love the way the man used words in pursuit of his wryly bleak slandering of the universe. Whistling whilst scrubbing, indeed.His essays on Beckett, Fitzgerald, Eliade, Borges, Valéry, and—in a most double-barreled release of reactionary vivification—de Maistre show how sha [...]


    2. Mi-a fost atât de dor de ceva care să nu fie în legătură cu Dreptul. Și mai ales ce dor mi-a fost de domnul Cioran, în profunzimea și simplitatea lui cinică. Sufletul și inima mea, pot reveni la Drept cu o adevărată gură de aer proaspăt luat pe drum spre Cluj, 4 ore jumătate„Crâmpeie, gânduri trecătoare, spui tu. Dar pot fi ele numite trecătoare când este vorba de obsesii, de gânduri a căror esență e tocmai că nu trec?”


    3. Sometimes it is possible to learn from an idiot. I read a library copy of Cioran's Anathemas and Admirations annotated by some young soi-disant deep thinker who has taken Philosophy 101 and is ready to take on the world. On the title page, under "Anathemas and Admirations," he has added "and Self-Pity." Throughout the book, his marginalia are critical of E. M. Cioran without the slightest understanding of what he is about, what he has been through, and what is his contribution to Western thinkin [...]


    4. E' curioso notare come il cinismo, se dichiarato, incontri un fastidio diffuso, quasi unanime, mentre invece è agnosticamente applicato in quasi ogni scelta, atteggiamento e dinamica sociale. E' altrettanto singolare percepire l'enorme distanza (e il pari fastidio) che separa l'uomo pragmatico di oggi dal concetto classico di speculazione filosofica. Oppure constatare la totale ignoranza del concetto stesso, di cui non resta in società neanche l'ombra liceale. Come se proprio il pragmatismo no [...]


    5. "'Sono un vigliacco. Non posso sopportare la sofferenza di essere felice'. Per penetrare qualcuno, per conoscerlo davvero, mi basta vedere come reagisce a questa confessione di Keats. Se non capisce subito, inutile continuare."D'accordo. Ora però un po' di tregua, Cioran. Facciamo per tre pagine. Dai. Anzi, ogni tre pagine, ecco.(Sento che stai sentendo che la mia richiesta è menzognera. Non ti sfugge niente, Emil Michel).


    6. « Je vois énormément et je sens monstrueusement », s’écriait un grand dramaturge roumain du 19e siècle. Pour s’en échapper, il s’est réfugié dans l’ironie en choisissant la comédie.Un siècle plus tard à peu près, Cioran, en souffrant de la même déformation de vue et de sensation, trouve son refuge dans la moquerie et l’auto-ironie, qui semblent surclasser dans son œuvre le pessimisme, la désolation et la mélancolie. Car ce rire-pleurer a été toujours un trait distin [...]


    7. (Cioran is one of those writers from middle Europe I'd never have heard of without Susan Sontag's not-so-gentle guidance. In this case I'm not sure I would have been much worse off. Walter Benjamin he was not. Hysterical, infuriating, and always kind of embarrassing. Nonetheless, I used to read him a lot. For some reason I found him easy to inhale. If memory serves this was my favorite of his books. This one contains actual, substantial essays - as opposed to his usual "aphorisms," little smears [...]


    8. Con todo el pesimismo que Cioran carga, en algún punto llega la risa y el sentimiento de que todo estará bien. supongo que no era su intención, o tal vez sí, pero me resultó un buen exorcismo. Hay aforismos hermosos sobre la sabiduría, el desamor, el desencanto, Dios, las amistades y la envidia. A mí me gustaba abrir una página al azar y leer uno de los 6 o 7 que aparecían.



    9. "Non chiedere mai al linguaggio di fare uno sforzo sproporzionato alla sua capacità naturale, in ogni caso non sforzarlo a dare il massimo. Evitiamo le promesse esagerate delle parole, per paura che, sfinite, non possano più tirarsi dietro il fardello di un significato."


    10. Call him a pessimist, cynic, misanthrope, grump, fatalist, or just plain catty douchebag, E.M. Cioran's aphorisms are fucking hilarious. I laughed out loud so much during his aphorisms sections of this book. Some of them are so off the mark stupid, some of them just hysterical or melodramatic, but some - well, most - are so hilariously crabby that there's not much to do when looking into the abyss with him but laugh. I can't tell you how many times I've put a check-mark next to one or wrote "hah [...]


    11. Nous y revoilà, avec le dernier tome de la confession de Cioran. Le titre est comme toujours élégant et, cette fois, presque alchimique. Toute l'œuvre de Cioran se voit résumée à l'essentiel : les aveux d'un homme assailli depuis toujours par l'absurdité de l'existence limitée et les anathèmes qui en découlèrent. On sait que Cioran avait un sang plutôt chaud et que c'est cette même force que le poison de la pensée de la mort a utilisée contre lui. Après avoir cru pouvoir atteind [...]


    12. Cioran's a bitch. A little bitch. He definitely values being clever-as-all-hell over being right or even consistent. My high school gym teacher back in Iowa probably would have called him a "wiseacre" or some such thing. When smart, continental types publish volumes of essays, we the readers generally get a good idea of who they as people are. Walter Benjamin, Roland Barthes, Susan Sontag all probably great people to have a beer with. Cioran would probably stub his cigarette out in your sandwich [...]



    13. "Dopo tutto non ho perso il mio tempo, anch’io mi sono dimenato, come chiunque altro, in questo universo aberrante." (p. 133)




    14. Nirvana Has been compared to a mirror that no longer reflects any object. To a mirror, then, forever pure, forever unemployedApparently matter, jealous of life, seeks to discover its week points and to punish its initiatives, its betrayals. For life is life only by infidelity to matterBoredom is indeed a form of anxiety, but an anxiety purged of fear. When we are bored we dread nothing except boredom itselfThe Ancients mistrusted success because they feared not only the gods' jealously but, even [...]


    15. [Leído en una edición publicada por Ediciones La Horca, editorial chilena independiente]Que una persona X, un fulano John Doe cualquiera, tome un lápiz o un teclado, y comience a escribir por libertad propia --careciendo de cualquier recurso formal o incluso informal (como el internet o clubes de lectura) que mediase entre la intención/inspiración/objetivo de su escritura y el resultado final de su febril ensayo-- y acabe por producir un producto satisfactorio, es un juicio que queda sujeto [...]


    16. E.M. Cioran writes:Every impulse of renovation, at the very moment when it approaches its goal, when it realizes itself through the State, creeps towards the automatism of the old institutions and assumes the face of tradition. As it defines and confirms itself, it loses energy, and this is also true of ideas: the more formulated and explicit they are, the more their efficacy diminishes. A distinct idea is an idea without a future. Beyond their virtual status, thought and action degrade and annu [...]


    17. I’ve never really figured out how one Cioran book is different than the other, but I love them all. Short essays interspersed with marvelously grumpy aphorisms:My mission is to see things as they are. Exactly the contrary of a mission. To have accomplished nothing and died overworked.A faith that acknowledges other faiths, that does not believe itself to possess a monopoly on truth, is doomed to ruin, abandoning the absolute that legitimizes it, resigning itself to being no more than a phenome [...]


    18. such a perfect choice to read the book at a cemetery by the coast. i felt so close to the deaths and so much affection for the ravens. and my limits were changing as the color of the waves. in love with insomnia and depression. in love with the cemetery to transform all traumatic experiences into something playful? i have been questioning of that a lot. i am enough dark to love you, and i am too dark for you to love me and to sense my being. cioran is not too dark. is it true that there is anoth [...]


    19. Люблю поддержать праздничное настроение толковой эссеистикой: "На загнивающей планете следовало бы воздержаться от того, чтобы строить планы, но мы все равно их строим, поскольку оптимизм, как известно, — это судорога умирающего"


    20. The grammar of living is forced to ignore music in order to exist. Music brings the none-being into existence. Words bring the unreal into the real without dualism but the indeterminate space in-between words and music.


    21. "Parecerse a un corredor que se detiene en plena carrera para intentar comprender qué sentido tiene correr. Meditar es un signo de sofoco"E.M. Cioran.Y este libro es un respiro de ese sofoco



    22. Tengo una relación complicada con este señor. Es sabio y agudo como nadie, pero dependiendo del momento en que lo lea puedo entenderlo o no.




    23. Смерть, бог, слово, Будда, бытие, музыка – основные философские размышления в книге.К середине книги увяз в самоповторах.
