Lowry, Malcolm: After publication „Under the Volcano”

Portre of Lowry, Malcolm

After publication „Under the Volcano” (English)

Success is like some horrible disaster

Worse than your house burning, the sounds of ruination

As the roof tree falls following each other faster

While you stand, the helpless witness of your damnation.


Fame like a drunkard consumes the house of the soul

Exposing that you have worked for only this –

Ah, that I had never suffered this treacherous kiss

And had been left in darkness forever to founder and fail.
