He knew his life was little and would be extinguished, and that only darkness was immense and everlasting. She remembered all the things they had written about her work: "...subtle, searching, and hushed, with a wry and rueful humour of its own..." "..these old eyes shine by its deft, sure touch of whimsey as nothing else in this prodigal season of dramatic husks has done..." "..gay insouciance of her unmannered settings, touched with those qualities which we have come to expect in all her ardent services to that sometimes too ungrateful jade, the drama..." "..excellent fooling that is implicit in these droll sets, elvishly sly, mocking, and, need we add or make apology for adding, expert? One morning when she came to see him and was telling him with spirit and great good humour about a little comedy she had witnessed in the street, suddenly she stopped short in the middle of it, a cloud passed over her face, her eyes became troubled, and she turned to him and said: "You do love me, don't you, George? He stopped by the front window and stood looking out, and she went over to him and quietly put her arm through his.And he knew that he would die with defiance on his lips, and that the shout of his denial would ring with the last pulsing of his heart into the maw of all-engulfing night. ..." She could hardly keep from laughing at the scornful twist of his mouth and the mocking tone of his comment as he bit off the phrases. She saw the vein swell in his temple, and knew there was no use in speaking. Yes--and then written sage words about it: "A foolish consistency," Emerson had said, "is the hobgoblin of little minds." And great Goethe, accepting the inevitable truth that human growth does not proceed in a straight line to its goal, had compared the development and progress of mankind to the reelings of a drunken beggar on horseback. Don't you know, woman, that I haven't had a bite to eat all day? It will be like a living miracle, and will make you better and richer as long as you live. It will be a glory and a triumph." "Then this will be such food as no one ever ate before," he said. There was never anything like it in the world before. From the first day of his return he had flatly refused to go back to the house on Waverly Place which the two of them had previously shared for work and love and living. Had not even the philosophers themselves been similarly caught? You arc sitting there licking your lips over it now, gloating on it, and on my hunger! "It will be good because I am so good and beautiful, and because I can do everything better than any other woman you will ever know, and because I love you with all my heart and soul, and want to be a part of you." "Will this great love get into the food you cook for me? It will feed your hunger as you've never been fed before. But things were not quite the same between them as they had once been. No longer now for them was there a single tenement and dwelling place. He had learned that-in spite of his strange body, so much off scale that it had often made him think himself a creature set apart, he was still the son and brother of all men living.
It seemed to him that all man's life was like a tiny spurt of flame that blazed out briefly in an illimitable and terrifying darkness, and that all man's grandeur, tragic dignity, his heroic glory, came from the brevity and smallness of this flame. She handed them to him, and sat opposite to watch his face as he read them. Already there were little portents that made him begin to doubt it. Esther watched him a minute or two, feeling disappointed and hurt that he had not answered her. He had travelled through England, France, and Germany, had seen countless new sights and people, and--cursing, whoring, drinking, brawling his way across the continent--had had his head bashed in, some teeth knocked out, and his nose broken in a beer-hall fight. Thus, fleeing from a love that still pursued him, he had become a wanderer in strange countries. She read the gossip of the theatre, and she read the names of the cast that had been engaged for the new German play that the Community Guild was going to do in the autumn, and she read that "Miss Esther Jack has been engaged to design the show". He would keep love a thing apart, and safeguard to himself the mastery of his life, his separate soul, his own integrity. Would she take his love, but leave him free to live his life and do his work? And when he was agitated or interested in something, he had the trick of peering upward with a kind of packed attentiveness, and this, together with his general posture, the head thrust forward, the body prowling downwards, gave him a distinctly simian appearance. The morning sun steeped each object in her room with casual light, and in her heart she said, "It is now." Nora brought coffee and hot rolls, and Esther read the paper. She had her world of the theatre and of her rich friends which he did not want to belong to, and he had his world of writing which he would have to manage alone.
