“She was more than human to me. She was a Fairy, a Sylph, I don’t know what she was – any thing that no one ever saw, and every thing that every body ever wanted. I was swallowed up in an abyss of love in an instant. There was no pausing on the brink; no looking down, or looking back; I was gone, headlong, before I had sense to say a word to her.” -Charles Dickens, David Copperfield
David Copperfield was Sigmund Freud’s favorite novel. I imagine Freud raised his brow and nodded when David fell for for the spirit of his mother in the child-like Dora.
