the last book I ever read (Elizabeth Bishop: A Miracle for Breakfast, excerpt ten)

from Elizabeth Bishop: A Miracle for Breakfast by Megan Marshall:

Y siento más tu muerte que mi vida, she copied from Hernández’s poem onto her page, but did not translate: I feel your death more than my life. In a letter to Dr. Baumann, written while Roxanne was still living at Casa Mariana, Elizabeth admitted, “Since she died, Anny—I just don’t seem to care whether I love or die.”
