Annals of desire: part whatever

You are reading The Museum of Innocence. You read Book IV of The Aeneid at the same time–you know the part about the marriage of Aeneas and Dido.

Serious desire–the emotion that consumes you and won’t let you go until it kills you or at least makes you want to die–has no peer except the shock of combat and war.

Yet where would we be without it? Pretty much nowhere I expect.
