Acabou por se deixar inspirar pelo pai, um contador de histórias

ERNEST.jpg

Ernest Poole foi educado em casa até aos 7 anos e depois viria a frequentar a Escola Universitária para Meninos de Chicago, onde começou a revelar uma propensão para a palavra escrita, fazendo parte da equipa do jornal por um breve período de tempo.

A casa onde viveu na¬†Michigan Avenue¬†em Chicago era habitada n√£o s√≥ pela fam√≠lia, mas tamb√©m por um batalh√£o de empregados, jardineiros e governantas. Levou¬†uma vida privilegiada,¬†passando os Ver√Ķes na casa de fam√≠lia em¬†Lake Forest, nas margens do¬†Lago Michigan, convivendo de perto com a elite de Chicago.

Ap√≥s a conclus√£o do ensino secund√°rio Ernest Poole, talentoso violinista,¬† tirou um ano s√≥ para estudar m√ļsica, com vista a tornar-se num compositor profissional, mas acabou por constatar que o¬†processo de escrever m√ļsica era mais dif√≠cil do que pensava. Acabou por se deixar inspirar pelo pai, um contador de hist√≥rias que adorava literatura, come√ßando a equacionar dedicar-se √† escrita.

Feel equal!

You're a suffragist, eh, a feminist‚ÄĒwhatever you want to call it! All right! So¬†you want to be equal with man!

Then, for God's sake, why not begin? Feel equal!

Mankind had suddenly unmasked and shown itself for what it was

Mankind had suddenly unmasked and shown itself for what it was‚ÄĒstill only a precocious child, with a terrible precocity. For its growth had been one sided. Its strength was growing at a speed breathless and astounding. But its vision and its poise, its sense of human justice, of kindliness and tolerance and of generous brotherly love, these had been neglected and were being left behind.

And while we're groping, groping, can't we give each other a hand?

Every nation at war is doing it, dad‚ÄĒbecome like one big family‚ÄĒwith everyone helping, doing his share.

Must a nation be at war to do that?

Can't we be brothers without the guns?

Can't you see that we're all of us stunned, and trying to see what war will mean to all the children in the world?

And while we're groping, groping, can't we give each other a hand?

A sense of all humanity honeycombed with millions upon millions of small sorrows

And as he listened in the dusk to the numberless murmuring voices of living creatures large and small which rose out of the valley, and as from high above him the serenity of the mountains there towering over thousands of years stole into his spirit, Roger had a large quieting sense of something high and powerful looking down upon the earth, a sense of all humanity honeycombed with millions upon millions of small sorrows, absorbing joys and hopes and fears, and in spite of them all the Great Life sweeping on, with no Great Death to check its course, no immense catastrophe, all these little troubles like mere tiny specks of foam upon the surface of the tide.

He himself was a part of all this, the great, blind, wistful soul of mankind

And there came to him a feeling which he had often had before in many different places‚ÄĒthat he himself was a part of all this, the great, blind, wistful soul of mankind, which had been here before he was born and would be here when he was dead‚ÄĒstill groping, yearning, struggling upward, on and on‚ÄĒto something distant as the sun.

And still would he be a part of it all, through the eager lives of his children.

He turned and looked at Deborah and caught the light that was in her eyes.

You feel too free

You ask, 'Where can I find a new God?' and you reply, 'There is no God'. And then you must be very sad.

You know how it is?

You feel too free. And you feel scared and lonely. 

You look up at the stars. There are millions. You are only a speck of dust - on one.

in His Family de Ernest Poole
