“There’s a tendency these days to valorize melancholia itself for being somehow more “ethical” than mourning—less vulgarly recuperative or appropriative, more faithful to the dead because of its tenacity and plangency—but this is far too easy; it ignores the inextricable link between melancholia and narcissism, and the secret gratifications we garner in our grief.” – Rebecca Comay, Missed Revolutions, Non-Revolutions, Revolutions to Come, 320 http://ift.tt/1OEma4t
