Why do I weep for this man? His redemption is costly and inadequate. His life was lived at the expense of women; the saddest moment in this is not the moment of death but the moment Sister Edit blames herself for this man's sins. His sins were never hers; her interest in his redemption (and her love for him) is a cruelty done to her (by the storyteller). If he returns to his wife, that is an affliction on wife and child. Yet I weep for him, because he weeps.
