    1. When depression visitsI shall hang myselfto the sound of my lover s breathingHow could anyone review a book like this It s too overwhelming that you cannot explain the whole deal of emotions that you go through while reading such a book The way Sarah explains her emotions , the way she talks about her so coming death and the way she confronts the world with her utter disgust is just too amazing ,painful and passionate.One cannot possibly read this without a sense of fear.You feel like Sarah is t [...]

    2. How do you review a suicide note It s beautiful, it s dark, it s funny, it s tragic, it s morbid, it s complex, it s to the point, it s hopeful, it s hopeless, it s logical, it s chaotic, it s there, in your face, it s the truth She has, had, a beautiful way with words, an amazing sense of humour even in her darkest moments, she writes with such clarity, even when nothing is clear to her, she writes in rhythms and images and it s like poetry, or music, and every single word is important, means s [...]

    3. Reading.48 Psychosis was the equivalent of reading someones suicide note, sadly, could be looked at as Kane s real life suicide note It s dark, distressing, painful and upsetting, but also enigmatic genius, by a troubled young soul, who took her own life age just 28 Her writing is sharp and not for the faint of heart, and deals mainly with physical and psychological pain The play was staged in London for the first time a year after her death in 1999, itself is a sequence of elliptical fragments, [...]

    6. Breathtaking, heartbreaking, intense and brutalI need to re read it.It s beautiful and sad but not pitiful I ve never understood what it is I m not supposed to feel Highly recommended you ll enjoy it.

    7. A fuck you suicide note intended for the world to see Not pleasurable, but immensely poignant and strong Regardless the perfect score, however, the drama is not perfect in the sense that it has no weak spots, but in that it delivers perfectly what it sets out to What is , I reckon it is even powerful when experienced live Potentially dangerous and cathartic And depressing as hell.

    8. I don t know about this one It was handed to me from a friend after we lost a mutual friend and I have to say I don t know why that person finds anything but a vomit of emotions told frankly and fiercely Having not only lost three people in a year, coupled with a long history of mental illness, I just found nothing impressive about a depressives suicide note nor do I find it hip or exciting, like some of the reviewers Look, a text like this may be valuable to someone studying the human brain but [...]

    9. I read this book in both languages English, and Arabic.Sara Kane reminds me of the writings of the dear Emil Cioran.

    10. a vous renvoie l hypoth se de votre propre suicide le temps tr s court de la lecture.J aime beaucoup cette phrase Je n ai aucun d sir de mortaucun suicid n en a

    11. Dark, destructive, and consistently uncomfortable, Kane s work reads like a heavy meal difficult to digest and weighty in your stomach, but riddled with an impact that leaves you feeling both morbidly queasy and fully satisfied, all at once.Unstable, irregular, dichotomous and turgid, her written tongue is a gyrating ferris wheel of ideals that chops and changes in unnatural rhythms often left unexplored by the lesser playwright However, one not afraid of breaking the mould, Kane allows her own [...]

    12. You ll never read anything like it At least, I sincerely hope not.It s like the book got hold of Kane and smashed her head open so you could see every messed up wire inside in all it s fizzling, but somehow working, glory The worlds most insightful suicide letter to ever be published in my eyes At least, in a play form It s beautiful in the most confusingly painful way, and it s something that ll never leave you completely If you want power like a fireman s water hose in your face, this is for y [...]

    13. At 4.48when sanity visitsfor one hour and twelve minutes I am in my right mind When it has passed I shall be gone again,a fragmented puppet, a grotesque fool Now I am here I can see myself but when I am charmed by vile delusions of happiness,the foul magic of this engine of sorcery, I cannot touch my essential self.

    14. aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaTired of crowd searchingTelepathy and hopeWatch the stars predict the past and change the world with a silver eclipse All I know is snow and black despair

    16. At 4.48when depression visitsI shall hang myselfto the sound of my lover s breathingHeavy, incoherent and beautifully confusing Deeply touching.

    17. Kane s last play is a doozie 4.48 is supposed to be the time at which most suicides occur, and this work openly explores the experiences of a suicidal person The work is an abstracted mindscape of an unnamed individual, disjunctive and non linear, retaining very few of the conventions I associate with plays three actors perform at least three performed in the first performance listed in my copy , but no characters are given Dialogue is, in a way, present,unattributed other than by the patterns o [...]

    18. This play by the sometimes psychotically depressed playwright Sarah Kane who finally took her own life was good, if painful I think San Francisco Babarian poet Maura O Connor documented her own spiral into madness even better in her poetry book Testimony Zeitgeist Press, 2013 , available at zeitgeist press.

    19. I saw the Royal Court Theatre Sarah Kane wrote the play for RCT perform this play in Berkeley in 2004 and while this wasn t the type of play that is enjoyable, it was devastating and amazing I loved the performance and afterwards I read the play and loved it as well As far as length and writing style, it is an easy read, but the content is not.
