Feeling, Mental Illness

    The news of her lover's death causes Rosalie to 'fall senseless to the ground'. She is carried to her bed, but the illness rapidly becomes serious: 'A fever seized her frame; she became at once delirious; nor did reason again resume her throne; and it was not till after months of suffering and agony, that she recovered, if that could be called recovery, which gave back deformed and hapless lunatic, bereft of intellect and of beauty'. (87)
