it comes from the scene after lector,pazzi and his wife have watched the opera
and lector meets pazzi's wife for the first time.

"""He woke her then, and trembling and obedient, she ate that burning heart out of his hand. Weeping, I saw him then depart from me.

Could he daily feel a stab of hunger for her? Find nourishment in the very sight of her? I think so. But would she see through the bars of his plight, and ache for him?"""""
