"Ours is essentially a tragic age, so we refuse to take it tragically.
The cataclysm has happened, we are among the ruins, we start to build up new little habitats, to have new little hopes. It is rather hard
work: there is now no smooth road into the future: but we go round, or scramble over the obstacles. We’ve got to live, no matter how many skies have fallen."

D. H. Lawrence, Lady Chatterley’s Lover


Monday First Lines | Every Monday, we offer the opening sentences of a Penguin Classic to start the week. In honor of Banned Book Week, here are the first lines of Lawrence’s classic, declared obscene upon publication in 1928 and finally legalized as the result of R v. Penguin Books Ltd. in 1960.

Landscape with Snow, 1888
Vincent van Gogh

When 35-year-old van Gogh arrived in Arles in Feb. 1888, it was covered in snow due to record cold spell. He painted Landscape with Snow around 24 Feb., just as the snow was melting, one of the first paintings in his new home, where he would stay until his disastrous visit from Gauguin and commitment to the asylum in Saint Rémy in May 1889.

At 8:42 pm on 22 September 2010, 18-year-old Rutgers student Tyler Clementi was at the George Washington Bridge.  He posted on his Facebook page, “jumping off the gw bridge sorry.”

Clementi also left a suicide note, which has not been released to the public.  His body was not discovered until 29 Sept.

On 19 Sept., Clementi’s roommate, Dharun Ravi, and hallmate, Molly Wei, secretly viewed Clementi via his computer webcam when he asked to have the room for himself and another man. Ravi and Wei attempted another viewing on 21 Sept. but the attempt was discovered by Clementi. Clementi complained to the University and asked for a room change and punishment for Ravi. “I feel that my privacy has been violated and I am extremely uncomfortable sharing a room with someone who would act in this wildly inappropriate manner.” Clementi did not wait for the University to take action, however, and drove from campus to the bridge.

The media typically treated the suicide as a “scandal” with little regard to the cause or impact of Clementi’s suicide (note the exclamation mark on the Headline News tag).

Ravi was convicted in 2012 on 15 counts of invasion of privacy, bias intimidation, tampering with evidence, witness tampering, and others.  He was sentenced to 30 days in jail, 3 years probation, 300 hours of community service, and a $10,000 fine.  Ravi has filed an appeal.

Molly Wei avoided prosecution for her testimony against Ravi and served 300 hours of community service.

 When routine bites hard, And ambitions are low, And resentment rides high, But emotions won’t grow, And we’re changing our ways, Taking different roads. Then love, love will tear us apart again.

But emotions won’t grow,
And we’re changing our ways,
Taking different roads.

Then love, love will tear us apart again.
