"Six years ago, a wife, whom I loved as no man ever loved before, ruptured a blood-vessel in singing. Her life was despaired of. I took leave of her forever & underwent all the agonies of her death. She recovered partially and I again hoped." —Published in 1903 Harrison, Life and Letters of Edgar Allan Poe [Vol. II, pp. 287-325] [from The Greatest Evil, a song cycle on a letter by Edgar Allan Poe ]
