Edvard Munch’s Jan. 22, 1892 diary entry about his experience that was the inspiration for “The Scream”:

I was walking along the road with two friends

– the sun was setting

– I felt a wave of sadness–

– the Sky suddenly turned blood-red

I stopped, leaned against the fence

Tired to death– looked out over

The flaming clouds like blood and swords

–The blue-black fjord and city–

–My friends walked on– I stood

there quaking with angst– and I

felt as though a vast, endless

Scream passed through nature.

 

Munch hand painted this poem in two columns on the bottom of the frame of the 1895 pastel-on-cardboard version of “The Scream”:

I was walking along the road with two friends

The Sun was setting – the Sky turned blood-red.

And I felt a wave of Sadness – I paused

tired to Death – Above the blue-black

Fjord and City Blood and Flaming tongues hovered

My friends walked on – I stayed

behind – quaking with Angst – I

felt the great Scream in Nature
