Deliver me from writers who say the way they live doesn’t matter. I’m not sure a bad person can write a good book. If art doesn’t make us better, then what on Earth is it for?

A hundred times already the sun had leaped, radiant or saddened, from the immense cup of the sea whose rim could scarcely be seen; a hundred times it had again sunk, glittering or morose, into its mighty bath of twilight.

Baudelaire was born on April 9, 1821. Read his prose poem “Already!”, translated from the French by Aleister Crowley,

Hi! Can I ask what Pretty Deadly is about? I see it all the time on tumblr and have become so curious about it : )

kellysue:

The first volume is about a woman who is unfairly imprisoned and who frees herself with the help of her daughter. 

Unless it’s about a little girl being asked to take her place in an a very adult world too early… and finding she was right where she was supposed to be all along. 

Or it might be about a man who first used love as a weapon, learning to experience it as a gift.  

Or maybe about a playboy finding he’s not as cowardly or careless as he imagined himself to be.  

Or maybe about two women who have embraced violence and what it’s made of them. 

Or maybe it’s about a dead bunny who carries the soul of the world and tells stories to a butterfly. 

…It’s complicated.
