    one question

    Hi teacher?

    I have difficulty understanding the two bracketed clauses. Would you please give me a hand?

    Why was it that in cases of real love the one who is left done not more often followed the beloved by suicide? ...Because (it is as though the one who is left steps for a time upon a stage and each second swells to an unlimited amount of time and he is watched by many eyes? Or when there is love, the widowed must stay for the resurrection of the beloved - so that the one who has gone is not really dead, (but grows and is created for a second time in the soul of the living? )

    Thanks a bunch!

    Re: one question

    The first doesn't make much sense to me either. I suppose the second means that the widow or widower recreates their lost spouse in their memory so it is like a second life, or resurrection.
