[Virginia Poe's life] was despaired of . . . she recovered partially and I again hoped. . . . Each time [she relapsed] I felt all the agonies of her death—and at each accession of the disorder I loved her more dearly & clung to her life with more desperate pertinacity . . . it was the horrible never ending oscillation between hope & despair. . . . —Poe to George Eveleth, January 4, 18481(p347)
