The book I ordered finally arrived: Leaves of Hypnos by Rene Char. The book has been out of print in the US for quite some time and I had to find a used copy online. I was very fortunate to get a copy for a very good price and it is in good condition. It only cost $10.
I read it on the same day it arrived, but plan to read it again. It drips with pain and love.
Consider the following passages. Rene Char writes, “All the massed fragrance of these flowers to pacify the night that falls upon our tears.”
Have you had such a night? Even my night, could not compare to his.
Char lights the way by saying, “In the depths of our darkness there is no one place for Beauty. The whole place is for Beauty.”
It was exactly the book I needed.
