Um equívoco

Não tarda, passaram 40 anos desde a morte do Nick Drake. O Guardian recupera, a propósito, o obituário publicado pelo NME. Vale a pena ser lido, ainda que assente num equívoco: a introspeção, ao contrário do sugerido, não é outra coisa que "a capacidade para observar".

It’s that word “introspection” which constantly springs to mind when Drake’s name is mentioned, which is a large part of “the image”, sure, but really Robert Kirby says it when he views Nick Drake the artist as remarkable for “his ability to observe, mainly. I see his work above all as a series of extremely vivid, complete observations and not mere exercises in introspection as some might."
