suicides

Posted to WritersAndGenres




i know it may be disrepectful to talk of the dead this way but my nomination for most spectacular suicide goes to Hart Crane (Mishima disembowelling himself with a samurai sword is a close second). to get so drunk on a cruise that you have to be nailed into your cabin to stop you molesting the sailors. then escape and after saying to a bystander I'm finished, i've quite disgraced myself, dive off the ship and last be seen swimming at full speed into shark infested waters. well the man's got class!
