EXTRACTS FROM THE DIARY OF A DAMNED SOUL



October, November, 1896

The Brahmin has fulfilled his duty as regards
life when he has begotten a child. Then he goes
into the desert, to dedicate himself to solitude
and asceticism.

*



My mother-in-law.—“What have you done in
your former human existence that Fate deals
so hardly with you?”

I.—“Think! Remember a man who was first
married to another man’s wife, like myself, and
who separated from her in order to marry an
Austrian, like myself! Then his little Austrian
is torn from him, as mine has been from me,
and their only child is kept in the Bohemian
mountains as mine is. Do you remember the
hero of my romance, On the Open Sea, who
commits suicide on an island——”

M.—“Enough! Enough!”
