Tatiana Yablonskaya - 1998
"My eyes are full of tears, tears of sorrow and mortification. My heart is full of bitterness and despair. I can see nothing but your face as it was then raised to meet another’s. O, Nora, pity me for what I suffer now. I shall cry for days. My faith in that face I loved is broken. O, Nora, Nora have pity for my poor wretched love. I cannot call you any dear name because tonight I have learnt that the only being I believed in was not loyal to me. O Nora is all to be over between us? Write to me, Nora, for the sake of my dead love. I am tortured by memories. Write to me, Nora, I loved you only: and you have broken my faith in you. O, Nora, I am unhappy. I am crying for my poor unhappy love."
quoted from James Joyce, in a letter to his wife Nora Barnacle
