Paul Celan, Albert Camus

What stood by you
appears on every shore
mown down
into another image.

- Paul Celan
Glottal Stop
translated by Nikolai Popov and Heather McHugh

A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened.

- Albert Camus
