Le suicide par enthousiasme
« J’irai ruminer mon bonheur dans l’éternité »
On leaving the theater after too brilliant a performance, only impassioned Romanticism could lead one to shoot oneself in the head and avoid a disappointing return to everyday life… And only fabulous writer Hector Berlioz could have imagined such a caustic outlet as this story for the enthusiasm that consumed him.
