APS TOGETHER

Dependency by Tove Ditlevsen Day 7

February 24, 2022 | Part II, Chapters 4-5

Carl’s “fuzz picking”? What a detail! We see the extreme consequences of the existential disconnectedness. The soulless monster feeds Tove connection (love) through a needle. The detachment spills into her children.



This photo is iconic: Looks lovely, but the disconnection is there. The house in the background is the one she lived in with Carl. Under the surface the social climbing has become a descent into hell. (Tove outside the villa with the kids. Credit: The Royal Library, CPH.)
