The article offers a condensed, and very accessible, summary of aspects of his larger survey. Uwe Saeger 83 someone purporting to be related to a former colleague of the narrator is actually more disturbing. The following week, the narrator is telephoned by a DEFA producer, seemingly out of the blue, about the possibility of filming the screenplay.
Ultimately, the sudden interest would appear to have little to do with coincidence. The unsettling impact of this sequence of events on the narrator is doubtless accentuated by his own creative impasse. In essence, it borrows heavily from the original tale, recounting the return home of two conscriptees, but with the added dramatic tension of being set in October Der Text des M. DN, Du galtest schon als kooperativ. Ist ein Aktenvermerk. Aber so war die Strategie damals. Ich war immer in Erwartung eines Unheils, das von dieser Episode seinen Ausgang nahm.
Ich trank viel 52 und ich schrieb nichts. Clearly unsettled, it is striking that the narrator should resort to alcohol once more, as he had following his tour of duty at the Berlin Wall. In an ironic twist, when one considers the proactive role the Stasi played in combating insurgency, the narrator is chided for his inactivity and apparent indifference towards the fate of the GDR: 52 This passage is reminiscent of Was bleibt, in which the narrator is similarly afflicted by a debilitating paranoia.
Hatte der Meister etwa Angst? War er sich zu schade? Wars doch nicht seine Stunde, nicht seine Zeit? Furthermore, the existential situation of the two diametrically opposed characters seems strikingly similar, thus reflecting a far broader social pattern, for both are plagued by doubts about their professional futures.
Conversely, the narrator himself is uncertain whether he will be able to write again now that the Wall has fallen.

The text thus depicts most effectively not only the causes, but also the symptoms, of the pressures exerted on individuals in the GDR. What is more, the psychological ramifications of this pressure are manifest in the very form of Die Nacht danach und der Morgen, the disjointedly hybrid nature of which reflects the disorientation of the author. The conflation of different documents in Die Nacht danach und der Morgen, some of which appear overtly autobiographical and others of which may be fictional, makes it impossible to define it as a conventional autobiography.
The narrative time is not chronological; rather it is syncopated with leaps back and forth within passages of interior monologue, giving the effect of snatches of memories being flung together. In this respect, the movement between temporal planes in the narrative closely resembles the same almost arbitrary process in Kindheitsmuster, in which the narrator glides between three different periods in her life: the Third Reich, her return to the site of her childhood in , and the writing up of both experiences from to Uwe Saegers 54 Buch […] ist der poetische Versuch, eben das zu tun.
The reasons for this decision emerge within the text, as it would appear to indicate that thorough selfknowledge lies beyond the grasp of the author. If this is true, how can subjectivity be conveyed in textual terms? On several occasions, the narrator throws up his hands in despair at being unable to explain himself and find the words or the form to do so. Gansel, p. So what is Saeger trying to achieve? Is this not postmodern playfulness after all, an aesthetic game? One need only acknowledge the strong moral and self-critical tone of the narrative to reject such an interpretation.
How could it be otherwise in a totalitarian system that sought quite deliberately to mould its citizens to fit a template? Saeger is driven by this same existential imperative: it underpins not only the description of his tortured efforts to write about his military service in the opening section, but also his struggles to deal with the social upheaval during the Wende.mail.wegoup777.online/mara-antonieta-biografa.php

The compulsion to write is evident, and even though the words prove frustratingly, almost cripplingly, elusive, it is this very compulsion that is key; it marks an attempt at least to articulate the self as coherently as possible, instead of surrendering to silence. By , individuation was still subject to debilitating pressures that stunted the growth of fully rounded identities. As a representative of the middle generation, Saeger bears all the scars of his GDR upbringing.
That the text bears no genre description underlines this fact: he simply does not know how best to define this intrinsically subjective text, and simply exploits a blend of different literary materials more in hope, it seems, than expectation of achieving his aim. DN, On this occasion, the narrator describes himself as being trapped in an iron construction, but aware of space opening up below, presumably room in which he might move. Uwe Saeger 91 trapped in iron, but truly rootless? As the complex structure of Die Nacht danach und der Morgen indicates, however, confronting the past is easier said than done, due to the depredations inflicted upon individuals by the State.
For Saeger, as we have seen, his passivity in the GDR engenders a deep sense of shame and guilt, but it is hard to censure him, when one considers the environment within which he grew up. The problems that Saeger has in coming to terms with his actions reflect the scale of those pressures, arguably in a more effective manner than Wolf was able to achieve in Was bleibt.
Die Nacht danach und der Morgen does raise similar concerns, but offers more insight into the nature of GDR society at large. And therein lies the considerable strength of this remarkable, challenging book. Ultimately, it matters little where precisely the line between fact and fiction is drawn in Die Nacht danach und der Morgen: what does count is that it conveys an authentic sense of 58 Ibid. Thus, the pressures placed upon individuals come to the fore, together with the sense of disorientation that many people were to feel as the GDR crumbled; not so much because the State was much beloved by its people, but rather that it had been their home and embodied familiar surroundings.
Many GDR commentators have described the effects of this overnight transition to freedom with detachment, but Saeger has arguably provided the earliest searching literary analysis of the ramifications from a subjective perspective. Preece, p. It should be noted that these young voices can now be heard. All subsequent references to this volume will appear in the text in the form ITM, All page references to this edition will appear in the text in he form WL, In this way, for all the contextual and stylistic correlations that exist, one ought to view If This is a Man and weiter leben rather as complementary texts which broaden the focus of debate on the Holocaust.
Survivors have come to terms with their experiences in a personal manner, and in this way their individual reflections rescue a sense of self from the collective dehumanisation that the concentration camps sought to impose on the prisoners. Subsequent page references to this edition will appear in the text in the form JSS, Stuttgart: Klett-Cotta, Wer sich selbst auszieht, der sagt, ich mach, was ich will, oder sogar, bitte, du kannst mich. Der Zustand ist neutral; der Kontext ist alles. WL, Each subjective account interprets that context anew, providing fresh perspectives on the experience and thereby contributing to a more differentiated appreciation of the Holocaust and its victims.
Although the picture of, what has been termed, the univers concentrationnaire may seem quite clear, by virtue of the many artistic and documentary representations of the Holocaust that now exist, each new account can provide different insights to shock or elucidate that humiliating experience still further. Erst jetzt, an dieser Stelle, frage ich mich, wieso Orte, wenn ich doch eine bin, die nirgendwo lange war und wohnt.
Wir fangen mit dem an, was blieb: Ortsnamen. Ultimately, as weiter leben indicates, it is not the form but the content of the material dealing with the univers concentrationnaire which counts. Die Holocaust-Literatur ist im Schnittpunkt zwischen dem einmaligen und dem wiederholbaren Megaverbrechen angesiedelt. Sie mag Gedicht, Fiktion, Drama, Berichterstattung und was es sonst noch gibt, sein. One cannot help but feel that objections to Jakob the Liar stemmed largely from the casting of eccentric comedian Robin Williams in the lead role.
Was stimmt hier denn nicht? WL, Despite the seemingly reductive function of poetry as a way of passing the time, its significance in keeping the author mentally alert should not be overlooked. Das Gedicht transzendierte die Wirklichkeit nicht mehr. It is futile, even facile, to attempt to reduce that experience to a universal template. The intellectual and emotional investment in literature, it seems, facilitates an active response instead of a passive absorption of the facts: Wer nur erlebt reim- und gedankenlos, ist in Gefahr, den Verstand zu verlieren […]. Ich hab den Verstand nicht verloren, ich hab Reime gemacht.
It comes as no great surprise, therefore, that in spite of her admiration for Paul Celan, she should be so critical of his complex poetry. Ernestine Schlant provides a detailed survey of the debate about whether or not the Holocaust should ever be conceptualised linguistically, summarising in particular how Adorno eventually rescinded his initially dogmatic refusal to countenance any literary adaptation thereof. Mapping the Contours of Oppression retain the memory that is perhaps the only meaningful association we can have with Auschwitz: never to forget the abyss of inhumanity of 15 which man is capable.
Irrespective of her own, rather harsh, assessment of their deficiencies, those of her poems that she interpolates into the text of weiter leben represent significant attempts to interpret the univers concentrationnaire and consequently possess intrinsic value for their blend of Wahrheit and Dichtung. The first poem she cites is one dealing with her father, who left his family behind in Vienna, only to perish in a concentration camp in France. In this way, her poems about him are to be seen as purely functional personal documents with validity solely as exorcisms.
Her Auschwitz poems might therefore be seen to perform a similar function. No attempt is made to embellish the description or to inject any sense of drama or pathos into the text. Worte wechselnd standen sie am Eingang der Baracke. Even less worthwhile is it to make friends with them, because they have no distinguished acquaintances in camp, they do not gain any extra rations, they do not work in profitable Kommandos and they know no secret method of organizing.
And in any case, one knows that they are only here on a visit, that in a few weeks nothing will remain of them but a handful of ashes in some near-by field and a crossed-out number on a register. To readers now, such ruthless pragmatism is decidedly unsettling. Nevertheless, as Steinfeld observes, there is no mistaking a frequent brusqueness in weiter leben.
Ich denke dann, die wollen mir mein Leben nehmen, denn das Leben ist doch nur die verbrachte Zeit, das einzige, was wir haben, das machen sie mir streitig, wenn sie mir das Recht des Erinnerns in Frage stellen. As a result, women should be entitled to articulate their memories in the same way as men, for there was an undeniable equality in persecution and suffering. A commitment to feminism underpins the text, therefore, but must be seen in the context of wresting a voice for all witnesses whose testimonies have been drowned out or ignored, for whatever reason.
In particular, it is the poems that are interpolated into the text that offer glimpses of an individual coming to terms with the Holocaust and rescuing a sense of self. The problem, she argues, stems from too many people being unable to deal with uncomfortable or traumatic memories, either their own or those of other people. Wir erinnern uns, nicht weil wir sollen oder wollen, um keines kategorischen Imperativs willen, sondern weil wir so veranlagt sind, weil es uns nicht gegeben ist, uns nicht zu erinnern.
But she is not only stressing the legitimacy of her need to articulate her own memories; more importantly, she is also demanding that others should listen. The text is replete with other such examples aimed at correcting some of the preconceived ideas the author has encountered. As a telling postscript to this situation, she believes that the postwar refusal of the Poles to commemorate separately the Polish Jews who were murdered at Auschwitz indicates a disturbing level of anti-Semitism and a significant distortion of the truth. Rather than promoting a better understanding of what happened, these memorials paradoxically run the risk of distorting the past because they cannot possibly recreate the horror experienced by the prisoners.
The horrific nature of the past thus remains elusive, beyond the reach of imagination. But rearranged for whose benefit, one might ask? Is it not possible that these pitiful collections of mundane objects might bring home the reality of the Holocaust to those fortunate enough not to have been there? As a consequence, the sincerity of the emotional response they arouse must be called into question. As Schlant observes in The Language of Silence, the authenticity of the hysterical responses generated in Germany by the broadcast of the American television film Holocaust in was equally suspect.
It is clear that she would rather readers of these texts — and by extension, visitors to concentration camp memorials, or viewers of television programmes — displayed the same emotional detachment which underpins weiter leben. Theresienstadt war kein KZ-Museum geworden. WL, In effect, the return of normality to the area is the best commemoration for the horrors of the past. Instead of an unnatural vacuum, life has begun again. Her dislike of the museum culture surrounding some KZ can be seen in the wider context of the problem she has raised of how best to represent the Holocaust.
By implication, it is such works that have helped shape the perceptions of those such as Gisela, who have subsequently trivialised or sentimentalised the Holocaust accordingly. Although Apitz himself spent eight years in the camp, his account was produced in the GDR in the mids and duly bears the hallmarks of Socialist Realism, with the attendant partial interpretation one would expect from such a work.
Produced in exile, Das siebte Kreuz is underpinned by a defiant optimism that National Socialism could be defeated and that a sense of humanity would prevail. Hoffen war Pflicht. It is especially evident on those occasions when the author addresses her readers directly. It is as if the author herself has been overwhelmed, albeit briefly, by her emotions or outrage, and resorts to the kind of sermonising approach that runs the risk of perpetuating the very responses she is endeavouring to counteract. Aber seid ihr das wirklich? Wollt ihr wirklich so sein?
She wants not only to engage them in discussion, but also to provoke a response in them. In view of the extermination that took place at Auschwitz, the fact that she was not allowed to sit on a park bench at seven years of age might seem banal. It is interesting to observe in autobiographies dealing with the Nazi period how often the role of cinema emerges, providing evidence of its value as both a propaganda tool and a barometer of the period. Es war der reine Terror. Juden ist der Eintritt ins Kino gesetzlich untersagt. Hast du das gesehen? Wo ein unsauberer Profit zu machen war, und sei er auch noch so kleinlich, wie die 10 Pfennige pro Judenstern, haben die Nazis einkassiert.
There were fundamental differences between the three camps she was imprisoned in, which explains why she devotes time to each in turn in her account. Nevertheless, highlighting the individual nature of each camp does not detract from the suffering that existed in them all. Although the experience was less brutally degrading than at Auschwitz, it was dehumanising nonetheless. In relative terms, juxtaposed alongside the description of her childhood in Vienna, it is easy to see why she might feel this way.
Yet one must not overlook the important qualification in her remark. Ein Ameisenhaufen, der zertreten wurde. WL, There is no qualification now. The chances of successful selection for the author were remote; she was just twelve and was certain she did not look any older than thirteen. Irrespective of the role of good fortune, that there was still the capacity for humanity to prevail is crucial.
Yet, ironically, weiter leben might be viewed in a similar way. For all the harrowing detail that they contain documenting the way totalitarian regimes persecute those deemed outsiders, there is something inevitably uplifting about the survival they depict. The poem appears to anticipate the disillusionment that the author would feel in the immediate postwar period, but by her own admission this fact should not diminish the elation of the freedom so suddenly attained.
Die Frage war nicht so sehr, wohin, das war nicht mein Anliegen. Freiheit bedeutete weg von. Das ist subjektives Verhalten und verringert das Elend der Zeit um keinen einzigen Toten. Wir haben viel gelacht auf dieser Flucht. It is as if she is eager not to allow the fact of her own survival to deflect from the Holocaust, conscious that many people, such as Gisela, have relativised the horror in this way and view survivors as an alibi.
And yet, one cannot fail to be affected by this simple reassertion of individuality and humanity, for one rarely has a sense of the author smiling or laughing in weiter leben. It is inevitable that this idyll could not last. Although they are able to blend in relatively Mapping the Contours of Oppression seamlessly, two incidents have a profound effect on the author and signal the end of their untroubled existence. Was mich von denen trennte, waren nur einige Wochen, nach jahrelanger Gemeinsamkeit. Und da waren sie nun, meine Leute.
Als die Amerikaner kurz darauf einmarschierten, hatte niemand je was gesehen. In diesem Sinne hatte nur ich sie gesehen. They are significant attempts to break the silence, to articulate that which others cannot or will not. It is especially true of her relationship with her mother, which is rarely less than antagonistic, despite the common suffering they endured in concentration camps. These lives are set in motion by the existence of tensions and secrets; there is a disruption, distortion, or omission in the family narrative that must be repaired.
In both cases, the commonality of experience fails to mitigate the generational conflict. Die ihrige dient nicht dem Gedankenaustausch, sondern der Manipulation. In spite of the shared trauma, there is no impression that the experience brought them closer together.
Although it is tempting, perhaps, to view weiter leben as conforming to the typical pattern of myriad mother-daughter texts that have been the focus of many recent feminist studies, it would be a rather narrow interpretation of the text as a whole. It seems to have imbued the young girl with a sense of independence and a strong-willed outlook that finds expression in the narrative tone of weiter leben.
Nichts zu machen. WL, 41 It is the distortion of this affiliation with her home that signalled the onset of National Socialism. She no longer belonged; she became exclusively Jewish, and therefore representative of the other. Any inclusive, positive affiliation with Vienna is irrevocably juxtaposed with exclusion and persecution: 34 Boa and Palfreyman, p. The poems she adored as a child were written in German, but so too were the anti-Semitic posters that comprised her first reading. WL, Rather than signifying any degree of reaffirmation of a cultural or linguistic identity, her profession remains rooted in an enduring ambivalence.
Die halbe Welt wohnt nicht mehr dort, wo sie geboren wurde. That a sense of freedom should have remained important to the author is axiomatic. Das bildet man sich ein. Pletter, p. Das steckt einem in den Knochen ein 40 Leben lang. The only similarity exists in the way these early experiences have subsequently conditioned their attitudes.
The same contrast can be found in their perception of German. As one might expect after enforced exile, Domin longed for nothing so much as the opportunity to return home: […] Ich verwaist und vertrieben, da stand ich auf und ging heim, in das Wort. Das Wort aber war das deutsche Wort. As any lapse into her native tongue could lead to arrest, she had to suppress her identity. Consequently, when the Allies liberated Amsterdam, the author sought to return to Germany at the earliest opportunity, even though she knew that her Heimat would be much changed. More important, however, was the chance to rediscover her true voice.
Wer war schon bibelfest bei uns zu Haus? WL, Despite her expectations, however, both her victim status and her record of events were challenged after the war, so that it became necessary for her to bear witness to the Holocaust, a process which reached fruition with weiter leben. Wegwischen, wie mit einem Schwamm, wie die Kreide von einer Tafel. Sicher ist so ein Bild eine Nachwirkung der Nazipropaganda, doch zu einer Zeit, die die Frauen abwertete, war es naheliegend, mich selbst abzuwerten.
She posits the theory, with hindsight, that she was suffering from culture shock. It is nevertheless striking that she should have associated her problems at the time with her Jewishness. With the passage of time, she clearly came to view the unwillingness of people around her to acknowledge her past suffering as a stifling of her identity.
From her own point of view, her Jewishness was no longer a problem; it was part of who she had become. She has effectively rescued her identity. Her assertion is borne out by weiter leben, which documents the pressures she had to withstand and distils out the elements that have enabled her to stay alive and have shaped her sense of self. Nevertheless, about one thing she is adamant. Brockmann, pp. There is danger that public observances of remembrance days and anniversaries lead to ritualization und relieve the individual from the responsibility to remember.
This increasingly public memory work is further enhanced through a plethora of films and TV series, documentaries, and exhibitions […]. Institutionalization, ritualization, mythization, spectacularization — all tend to absorb and obscure the reasons for which they were created 50 and to replace individual memory work with public gestures. It breaks the silence others sought to impose, whilst also celebrating the capacity of humanity to prevail, reflected most obviously in the title.
It seemed inevitable that Vierzig Jahre would be weighed down by so much expectation, and unsurprisingly the reception it was accorded was more mixed than that of its predecessor. Subsequent page references to this volume will appear in the text in the form VJ, Subsequent page references to this volume will appear in the text in the form ZB, Mai , ed. All that had changed were the expectations of some critics, who appeared to be demanding a searching socio-political survey, undoubtedly because the subject of the GDR and its legacy was very much on the contemporary agenda, with ever more Stasi revelations in particular making the headlines at the time.
But it was inappropriate to expect an author, whose fiction is marked by his even-handed treatment of his characters, to abandon discretion all of a sudden and to adopt the more denunciatory tack that many appeared to demand. The material is kept on a tight rein, being divided neatly into short thematic chapters that introduce an array of other characters — family, friends, writers, philosophers, aristocrats — with the result that Das Leben des Jean Paul Friedrich Richter reads in the main like an historical novel.
Both autobiographical volumes largely share this same construction, which allows de Bruyn to interweave private and public history to great effect, thereby revealing just how potentially damaging to the individual this interface could be in totalitarian climates. Tatsachenberichte einfallslos aneinandergereiht, ergeben nur blasse Geschichten; erst die Erfindung verleiht ihnen Kontur.
It is only natural that the qualities deemed essential for producing authentic literature should pertain to autobiography as well, a genre demanding the highest guarantee of authenticity to be in any way credible. EI, 66 In both volumes of his autobiographical project, de Bruyn selects and arranges his material in the manner outlined in the passage above, in an attempt to produce an accessible, and authentic, account.
Nevertheless, de Bruyn is careful to underline the conditional nature of the texts thus constructed. Rather than reducing the sense of authenticity, such caveats serve to enhance the credibility of the texts produced in that de Bruyn can be seen to be striving for the truth and seeks to corroborate his account wherever possible. It is an approach to autobiography that is both subjective and authentic. It is a particular feature of Zwischenbilanz, where the gap between narrated past and narrative present is wider than in the second volume of his autobiography, but attention is also drawn to unreliable memories in Vierzig Jahre, albeit less frequently.
He can vouch for the veracity of certain memories on account of the deeply painful impression they made. Where he is unable to corroborate an episode fully, de Bruyn is careful to draw attention to his misgivings, as in the scene with the American pilot, or to concede that some events may not have coincided exactly as he describes, even though it is entirely plausible.
It is no less important a day, therefore, than 30 January , in that both had ramifications for ordinary individuals; the only difference in Vierzig Jahre, however, is that the author knows the juxtaposition of private and public experience on 17 June definitely occurred. The unreliability of his memories in general is a leitmotif in both volumes, and it is this candour which ensures their credibility.
EI, 42 Where possible, de Bruyn employs documentary evidence in his reconstruction in order to test, correct, or supplement his memories. ZB, To underline further still the difficulties facing any autobiographer, de Bruyn, who as a youngster assiduously maintained a diary, is forced to acknowledge the inherent unreliability of this document.
Eigne Meinungen scheint er nicht zu haben […]. Von Heimweh ist genauso wenig die Rede wie von Angst […]. Nie ist von Polen oder Juden die Rede, aber auch nicht von Hitler. ZB, Rather than plugging gaps, his diary poses more questions. In conjunction, memory and documentation do therefore recreate an impression of the past, even if, ironically in this instance, it is the process of remembering that appears more accurate. So tief wie de Bruyn hat niemand bisher die Wahrheit ausgelotet. His handling of the whole episode reflects both his integrity and the rigorous self-assessment that characterises his autobiographical work.
The confrontation with the Stasi files indicates indeed how difficult it is to write the truth. He does not denunciate or condemn; he is merely critical where criticism is required. In particular, de Bruyn pokes fun at his various unrequited infatuations with women, such as G. That this realisation strikes him only on his wedding day, the description of which otherwise proves an effective vehicle for comedy, suggests that the portents for the newly-weds are not encouraging.
He proceeds to outline in embarrassing detail how the reality does not match the expectations aroused by Karl May, alluding perhaps to the same discrepancy between theory and practice in the GDR as a whole.
The horses are ill-tempered and frequently escape, and instead of being able to devote himself to his work, de Bruyn spends most of his time ensuring the horses are fed or chasing after them. With great relief, he is finally able to sell them. As well as injecting humour into the narrative, such selfdeprecating moments ensure that de Bruyn never appears in any way heroic.
At times, his self-portrait recalls the diffident anti-heroes in his fiction, thereby underlining the subjective authenticity of his work. Nevertheless, de Bruyn emerges as a figure with whom one can readily identify. The abiding impression of both Zwischenbilanz and Vierzig Jahre is of a man plagued with fear and forced into uncomfortable compromises with the prevailing totalitarian regimes.
In order to preserve his personal integrity, de Bruyn kept his distance from authority wherever possible, withdrawing into an inner emigration particularly in the GDR. The author continually wrestles with the issue of conformity and whether he could, and should, have been a more active opponent of the regime.
Despite the significant differences, however, the three accounts provide mutual corroboration of the pictures of Nazi Germany conveyed, especially in the case of de Bruyn and Kunert who were both born and raised in Berlin. By contrast, his brother, Karlheinz, who was active in the Catholic Neudeutschland youth organisation, explained what was happening outside the confines of the family, and in the process exerted a strong influence on the young boy as a positive model of resistance, albeit largely passive in nature.
Und deren Verlust war schlimmer als die Verachtung, die von anderen kam. Although never a formal member of the Hitler Youth, de Bruyn did attend a camp at the behest of his friend Hannes, only to be horrified by the bullying atmosphere he encountered. Victimised for his inability to march properly, de Bruyn is humiliated by one of the leaders. Aber das beeindruckte mich wenig. Ich war nicht jeder. Und unter den vielen, die sich einordnen konnten, waren nicht die, die ich suchte und brauchte.
His stubbornness at the Hitler Youth camp was replaced by a desperate attempt to conform during his Kindlandverschickung experience. What Zwischenbilanz uncovers is the all-pervasive influence that National Socialism exuded on society and how susceptible youngsters in particular were to these morally distorting forces. Nonetheless, there remained a life beyond the private sphere that had to be endured, and survived. Der innere Widerstand, der sich da und dort, auch bei mir, regte, war weder politisch motiviert, noch wurde er so empfunden.
ZB, By stressing the immaturity of his generation in his analysis, de Bruyn is careful to play down the suggestion that any coherent will to resist existed. His assessment is sober and not uncritical, but he is equally mindful to underline how the exclusion of more enlightened, critical influences inevitably led to their general conformity and stunted development.
Both teachers combatted the partial syllabi with provocatively allegorical interpretations in their respective subjects that threw critical light on the present, allusions not lost on the more perceptive pupils such as de Bruyn. Thank God our bodies have this capacity. I hope you too can appreciate the experience. Let your tears flow to purify stress and negativity. When a friend apologized for curling up in the fetal position on my floor, weeping, depressed over a failing romance, I told her, "Your tears blessed my floor.
There is nothing to apologize for. Also, you can have tears of joy, say when a child is born or tears of relief when a difficult time has passed. Crying makes us feel better, even when a problem persists. In addition to physical detoxification, emotional tears heal the heart. You don't want to hold tears back. Tears of ending and beginning, photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher. If there were wanting any argument to prove that man is not mortal, I would look for it in the strong, convulsive emotion of the breast, when the soul has been deeply agitated, when the fountains of feeling are rising, and when tears are gushing forth in crystal streams.
O, speak not harshly of the stricken one — weeping in silence! Break not the deep solemnity by rude laughter, or intrusive footsteps. Scoff not if the stern heart of manhood is sometimes melted to tears of sympathy — they are what help to elevate him above the brute. I love to see tears of affection. They are painful tokens, but still most holy. There is pleasure in tears — an awful pleasure!
If there were none on earth to shed a tear for me, I should be loth to live; and if no one might weep over my grave, I could never die in peace.

The American nun study of aging and Alzheimer's disease founded and led by epidemiologist David Snowdon was a continuing longitudinal study Tears of ending and beginning, photographer Rose-Lynn Fisher Like the ocean, tears are salt water. They lubricate your eyes, remove irritants, reduce stress hormones and contain antibodies that fight pathogenic microbes.
Our bodies produce three kinds of tears: reflex, continuous and emotional. Each kind has different healing roles. For instance, reflex tears allow your eyes to clear out noxious particles when they're irritated by smoke or exhaust. The second kind, continuous tears, are produced regularly to keep our eyes lubricated.
These contain a chemical called "lysozyme" which functions as an anti-bacterial and protects our eyes from infection. Tears also travel to the nose through the tear duct to keep the nose moist and bacteria free. Typically, after crying, our breathing and heart rate decrease, and we enter into a calmer biological and emotional state. It is good to cry. It is healthy to cry. This helps to emotionally clear sadness and stress. Crying is also essential to resolve grief , when waves of tears periodically come over us after we experience a loss.
Tears help us process the loss so we can keep living with open hearts. Otherwise, we are a set up for depression if we suppress these potent feelings. Emotional tears have special health benefits. Biochemist and "tear expert" Dr. William Frey at the Ramsey Medical Center in Minneapolis discovered that reflex tears are 98 percent water, whereas emotional tears also contain stress hormones which get excreted from the body through crying.
After studying the composition of tears, Dr. Frey found that emotional tears shed these hormones and other toxins which accumulate during stress. Additional studies also suggest that crying stimulates the production of endorphins, our body's natural pain killer and "feel-good hormones. Other mammals and also salt-water crocodiles produce reflex tears which are protective and lubricating.

Having been delayed by this event, and ill-treated by peasants, they fiually reached our door in the night. The mother had been unable to give her child any nourishment since its birth. The old woman now deniauded boisterously flour, milk, an earthen dish, and linen for wrappiug up the child, As she could not speak French, we had to make the requests in her behalf ; but her authoritative manner, her vehemence gave to our words sufficient pan- tomimic weight and emphasis. One could not provide promptly enough what she demanded, and that which was provided was not good enough for her.
In return it was well worth seeing with what readiness she pro- ceeded. AVe were displaced from the fire, and the best seat taken posses- sion of for the sick woman, She occupied as much space as though she had the house all to herseif.
