Συνεπώς, ουδείς αναγνώστης δεν θα έπρεπε να έχει τέτοιου είδους προσδοκίες. This is a interesting and enjoyable book In his notes here we find his encounters with his friends at that time, Picasso keeps popping up in the pages with his beautiful insights on life and art.

Musical Escher The nature of the opera's narrative, as such, is not easily summarized, and it is as intricately wound as an M. They have come up with something quite outstanding, and it merits much more than a two-night stand. Nevertheless, I contend that one day we shall use those soothing substances without danger, that we shall avoid habit-making, laugh at the bugaboo of the drug and that opium, once tamed, will assuage the evil of towns where trees die on their feet. Το όπιο είναι το ημερολόγιο της αποτοξίνωσης του Κοκτό.
This book is a collection of notes, rather than a blow-by-blow diary, that Cocteau wrote then, I believe, re-ordered thematically and added in a few more as he went through the process of detoxing from his opium addiction. Occasional interesting nuggets, not enough to make it juicy reading for me. Dycky sem si myslel, že drogy sou špatný, ale Cocteau píše, že opium je výjimka. Ja mluvim velmi podobne kdyz opium se, takze mu zcela rozumim. Supongo que será una glándula que está enferma. But here we come back to the problem of progress.
Opium was a part of mazbe experiment. I have enjoyed in each page. Jiné mi nic neříkaly, jiné se mě dotýkaly na té nejintimnější úrovni. Il me semble que, sur une terre si vieille, si ridée, si replâtrée, où tant de compromis sévissent et de conventions risibles, l'opium éliminable adoucirait les moeurs et causerait plus de bien que la fièvre d'agir ne fait de mal. The ancient story of the poor writer assumed a new nobility when coupled to an existential hunger that ate up any experience narcotics had to offer. Vivir es una caída horizontal.
Furthermore, there is a dancing snake that preys on everyone's weaknesses and a chorus that sings from within a mirror when not engaged in assorted mimed activities. Στην πραγματικότητα 3,5 τα αστέρια. A thunderstorm assured a house full of people, a fire, games,a day that was intimate without deserters. Waiting for a period of calm to write these notes was trying to relive a state which is inconceivable as soon as the organism is no longer in it. En algún aparte, ya dirá Cocteau que el opio es una actividad solitaria, que consumir en pareja es un exabrupto, y ni hablar de tres, que ya son multitud desbordada. I have enjoyed in each page. Co se tyce teto knihy, doporucuji ji vsem, kteri se chteji pred aplikaci drogy ujistit, ze je to skvely napad.
It is to concern oneself with something other than life or death. Apomorphine is used now for veterinary purposes when dogs swallow poisons. A real doctor does not stay long in the room, he conceals his tricks for lack of tricks. With opium I suckled cells, which were restored to the world after five months of abstinence, and I suckled them with countless unknown alkaloids, whereas a morphine addict, whose habits frighten me, fills his veins with a single known poison and surrenders himself far less to the unknown. Il est dommage qu'au lieu de perfectionner la désintoxication, la médecine n'essaye pas de rendre l'opium inoffensif. Music theater--of any scale--is expensive to produce. Despre efectele Opiumului si despre sentimentele sale scrie mai putin.
Some are pretty, some have something interesting to say and others manage to be barely memorable, but the structure of random musing after random musing makes it very boring to read as a book. O tom jak moc se zkouril pise v teto knizce, kde placa pate pres devate, od Fantomase az po osud divadla. For the initiate of the church of opium, Cocteau's diaries may come off as more than just simple anecdotes of a real life addiction. His descriptions and criticisms include references to his own works or to the climate of the period and offer a stunning look at his own thoughts in this extraordinary moment. You like me very much but you like medicine more.
Rozhodně bych to nenazvala jako nějakou přelomovou, osudovou knihu celé společnosti, to ne. The events are irrepressibly bizarre throughout, and the references, both musical and literary, are farfetched. I recommend this book for anyone who wants to know Cocteau the human, the artist, the poet and it would lead you on the way to knowing yourself more. He cannot help but be liked. This maybe best book of Cocteu. Eventually he resorted to opium to find some relief and became addicted. One can imagine how the known and unknown alkaloids work, their Chinese invasion.
Coctault was unic for his time. Aunque no sea más que el álbum de fotografías , uno de los instintos más risibles de convertir una catástrofe en una serie de monumentos solemnes. He portraits that any form of art, like drawing and writing can be an escape, it is a roller coaster for an artist, with the intensity to create and the worthless feeling when he can't create anymore. Personally, having now read 'Opium', I am eager to find and read Cocteau's novel 'Les Enfants terribles' 1929. Není to žádná snaha o vyburcování toho, jak je opium špatné, jak je detoxikace nutná, nebo její podrobné líčení. Není to dávka surrealismu, kterou jsem hledala.
