Lady Lazarus by FrancescaPoliti Lady Lazarus by FrancescaPoliti


    "Dying
    Is an art, like everything else.   
    I do it exceptionally well.
    
    I do it so it feels like hell.   
    I do it so it feels real.
    I guess you could say I’ve a call.

    [...]

    Herr God, Herr Lucifer   
    Beware
    Beware.
    
    Out of the ash
    I rise with my red hair   
    And I eat men like air."


(Lady Lazarus, by Sylvia Plath)


Inspired by S. Plath poem, Lady Lazarus.

^^" ... eeh might be a metaphor for mmm dunno well Plath universe was quite complex :ashamed:
Her time women was more - as to say - powerless... in my personal interpretation that sentence is directed to God or whatever name the Creator (of her) could have, like scolding him for not giving her a definitive death.
And with death there are many interpretation, not strictly the physical one... mmm...
... meh, wanna know what? It's a zombie! And I love zombies! :la:

plz S. Plath fans, forgive me, I know this poem is deep but I love her description of resurrection :ashamed:

Thank You very much Rowye :hug::heart:

Hahaha oh yeah, zombies always make for a fun while. xD

Well, at the expense of looking like a complete ignorant I'll say, I did go and do some research about Plath, so that I could understand your reply lol.... And, I actually had a good time doing that. I guess part of it is the mystery in the suicide, and the fact she wrote such cutting lines at times, also that she was a published woman writer which wasn't easy in the 50s...
Anyway, I understand both the poem and your words much better now. :P

Always good to discover Plath poems, she's awesome :)
Well she's not exactly something to read during a depression attack, but she's awesome ^^"
Thank You very much for deepening it, not many people get interest in works related to poems and read even the poems. :happycry:
Thank You. :heart:

Inizialmente pensavo alla moglie di Lazzaro, vuoi anche per "le bende"! :constipated:
Sbaglio o lucertole e ragni stan li a gironzolare sulla pelle scared.... 'the 2nd'

Molto bello perchè coinciso senza fronzoli e va diretto al dunque! La cornice chiude la scena avvolgendola bene.

Questa strada funziona sempre, quindi tienila sempre cara nel tempo Judy and Nick - Icon

ahahahahahah XD rofl! noooo "anche per le bende" mi fa troppo ridere scusa XDDD
se lo vuoi proprio sapere mentre "posavo" con quel velo ci ho trovato sopra un ragno vero :giggle:
era troppo piccolino però e l'ho lasciato libero nel giardino lol

Grazie avevo bisogno di "pittare" a mano libera e mi è piaciuto molto, me la terrò carissima :)
Ci ho sudato un paio di giorni comunque, le pennellate a caso non sono poi tanto a caso.
Ora mi riposo :phew: riproducendo in digitale acquerelli di tutorial per tradizionale :phew:

Grazie mille :hug:

che roba è quell'emoticon? sembra un trip da lsd xD
