What does sanguine mean?

Posted by

First off, look at these pictures from Graziano Pafili. It is a series of pictures with  men and women in space suits in places that are familiar to them. This series is called Alienation.

When I was looking at these pictures this morning all I could think was, “These pictures make me feel sanguine.” Before you think I am huge weirdo who uses ridiculous words when he is thinking, I had no idea what it meant. I went to the dictionary and Sanguine means happy.

So, today look at the pictures that me feel the opposite of Sanguine.

  • The first thing I thought of when I read this is that this is exactly what Walker Percy was talking about in his essay ‘The Man on the Train’, in which, when speaking about the alienated man, he writes,

    “In the re-presenting of alienation the category is reversed and becomes something entirely different. There is a great deal of difference between an alienated commuter riding a train . . . The nonreading commuter exists in true alienation, which is unspeakable; the reading commuter rejoices in the speakability of his alienation and in the new triple alliance of himself, the alienated character, and the author. His mood is affirmatory and and glad: Yes! that is how it is!”

    The mood which says, ‘Yes! that is how it is!’ seems to me along the lines of your sanguine reaction.
