It is commonly thought that, of all people, lovers behold one another in the most unrealistic light, and that in their encounter is but the mutual projection of extravagant ideals. But may it not be that nature has allowed them to see for the first time what a human being actually is, and that the subsequent disillusion is not the fading of a dream into reality but the strangling of reality with an all too eager embrace?
