Liv Ferracchiati - La tragedia è finita, Platonov
Platonov as a text, written by a seventeen, perhaps eighteen year old, was a revelation for me. Reading Platonov was not reading a play, extending a literary culture jigsaw piece, for me it was an experience, those which change you.
Over the years I have continued to think about the character, his fragility, his appeal, his gaping void and the ﬁgures who revolve around him, ﬁgures which entered my imaginary world in some way.
Perhaps I’ll lose a few friends by confessing this and earn the attention of honest professionals in the medical ﬁeld but my encounter with Platonov’s humanity, which was so understandable to me, was an encounter with authentic organic matter, capable of reacting to the ideal dialogue I had embarked on.
So, a reading, a study, in some way affected a life, mine.
