Suicide creates his own society: to shut yourself off from other people in some dingy, rented box and stare, like Melville’s Bartleby, day in and day out at the dead wall outside your window is in itself a rejection of the world which is said to be rejecting you. It is a way of saying, like Bartleby, “I prefer not to” to every offer and every possibility, which is a condition no amount of social engineering will cure.
