Pier Paolo Pasolini on the Aesthetic’s Fading

“I love life so fiercely, so desperately, that nothing good can come of it: I mean the physical facts of life, the sun, the grass, youth. It’s a much more terrible vice than cocaine, it costs me nothing, and there is an endless abundance of it, with no limits: and I devour, devour.” / “My poetry differs  from that of the 20th century; it substitutes logic for the analogical, problems for gracefulness.”

1958-9
