Nick Cave: “Muza mea nu este un cal de curse”


Sa ne aducem aminte de cea mai frumoasa scrisoare de refuz ever. Ii apartine lui Nick Cave, care refuza nominalizarea MTV pentru categoria “Best Male Artist” din 1996, astfel: “My muse is not a horse and I am in no horse race”.

MTV-ul l-a nominalizat in acelasi an si pentru aceeasi categorie pe George Michael, iar Nick Cave s-a simtit “inconfortabil” cu nivelul discutiei si cu faptul ca, dupa 20 de ani de ignorare, MTV-ul l-a facut vedeta. A preferat sa se intoarca in obscuritate.

Kylie Minogue a citit scrisoarea lui Nick Cave:

“MY RELATIONSHIP WITH MY MUSE IS A DELICATE ONE AT THE BEST OF TIMES AND I FEEL THAT IT IS MY DUTY TO PROTECT HER FROM INFLUENCES THAT MAY OFFEND HER FRAGILE NATURE.

SHE COMES TO ME WITH THE GIFT OF SONG AND IN RETURN I TREAT HER WITH THE RESPECT I FEEL SHE DESERVES – IN THIS CASE THIS MEANS NOT SUBJECTING HER TO THE INDIGNITIES OF JUDGEMENT AND COMPETITION. MY MUSE IS NOT A HORSE AND I AM IN NO HORSE RACE AND IF INDEED SHE WAS, STILL I WOULD NOT HARNESS HER TO THIS TUMBREL – THIS BLOODY CART OF SEVERED HEADS AND GLITTERING PRIZES. MY MUSE MAY SPOOK! MAY BOLT! MAY ABANDON ME COMPLETELY!”

Daca v-a placut poezia dedicata MTV-ului, poate vreti sa-l cititi pe Nick Cave.

“Moartea lui Bunny Munro” de Nick Cave

moartea lui bunny munro nick cave

Dincolo de faptul ca povestea nu pare pana spre final nici originala, nici extraordinara, romanul este foarte tare.

Sinopsisul il puteti citi oriunde, cel cu comis-voiajorul care vinde cosmetice din usa in usa, insa nu asta a vrut sa spuna autorul. Este, de fapt, o calatorie spre autodistrugere si salvare a anti-eroului Bunny Munro, un monstru alimentat cu ciocolata, nicotina si cocaina, in cautarea aventurii priapice.

Pe masura ce romanul isi schimba tonul, de la comic lugubru la cosmar, va veti intreba despre sanatatea mintala a lui Nick Cave. Dar sa nu uitam ca este o poveste tragica, bolnava si amuzanta, pe alocuri, si care se indreapta cu hotarare spre sfarsitul teribil.

Atat va spun, nu vreau sa va stric frumusete de scriitura.

Astept sa-l vad pe Nick Cave si live. Doamne-ajuta! La cum se vand biletele in Romania, trebuie sa spui rugaciuni inaintea fiecarui concert.

  1. Hey! have you read The Sick Bag Song book or his first Novel And The Ass Saw The The Angel? Both i do think are better than Bunny Munro book!
