How would you interpret this sentence?
How would you interpret the fourth sentence “Suffer and eat your heart out, watch the screen and suffer”?
Does it mean he suffered and ate his heart out for watching the screen?
Or does it mean he suffered and ate his heart out because his was in a cauldron of boiling water.
PS: the excerpt is taken from “Katzenstein” written by an Israeli author, Etgar Keret. And I’m reading an English translation.
In Hell, they put me in a cauldron of boiling water. My flesh smoldered and burned, my skin was covered with blisters, and the pain was so bad I couldn’t stop screaming. They had these giant screens where you could see everything that was going on in Heaven. Suffer and eat your heart out, watch the screen and suffer. I think I spotted him there for a second, playing golf or cricket or something. There was a kind of close-up of his smile, and right after that they showed this couple making love.
