"Wormwood" by Marie Corelli, 1890.

"That night,—the night before my wedding-day, I drank deeply and long of my favorite nectar,—glass after glass I prepared, and drained each one off with insatiable and ever-increasing appetite,—I drank till the solid walls of my own room, when at last I found myself there, appeared to me like transparent glass shot through with emerald flame. Surrounded on all side by phantoms,—beautiful, hideous, angelic, devilish,—I reeled to my couch in a sort of waking swoon, conscious of strange sounds everywhere, like the clanging of brazen bells and the silver fanfaronade of the trumpets of war,—conscious too of a singular double sensation,—namely, as though Myself were divided into two persons, who opposed each other in deadly combat, in wich neither could possibly obtain even the merest shadow-victory! It was a night of both horror and ectasy,—the beginning of many more such nights,—and though I was hurried to and fro like a leaf on a storm-wind, among crowding ghost, open tombs, smiling seraphs, and leering demons, I was perfectly content with the spectral march of my own brain-pageantry. And I quite forgot—as I always wish to forget—that there are fools in the world for whom heart-freezing absinthe has no charms, and who therefore still prate like children and idiots, of God and Conscience!”
