Is Sisyphus Happy?
No event is unique
and occurs once and for all,
but rather every event has occurred,
occurs, and will occur, perpetually.
The same individuals have appeared,
appear, and reappear
in every return of the cycle.
In every cycle
Socrates will be tried,
condemned, and executed.
Death and defeat will come again to Beowulf
to his kingdom
and to every kingdom
The only argument for life Camus could find was:
the struggle itself toward the height is enough,
must be enough
to fill the heart.
One must try to imagine Sisyphus happy.
