Dante’s sonnet La Vita Nuova as depicted by Hannibal movie.
Joyous love seemed to me
The while he held my heart in his hands
And in his arms my lady lay asleep
Wapped in a veil
He woke her then,
And trembling and obedient
She ate that burning heart out of his hands
Weeping, I saw her then depart from me.
Do you believe a man could become so obsessed with a woman from a single encounter?
Could he daily feel a stab of hunger for her? Find nourishment from the very sight of her? I think so. But would she see through bars of his plight, and ache for him?
