В ней не было чего-нибудь особенно едкого, жгучего; но от нее веяло чем-то постоянным, вечным, предчувствовались безысходные годы этой холодной, мертвящей тоски, предчувствовалась какая-то вечность на "аршине пространства".

She had had a foretaste of the joys of loving passionately and torturing the man that she loved simply because she loved him, and that was why, perhaps, she was in haste to be the first to sacrifice herself.
Она предвкушала наслаждение любить без памяти и мучить до боли того, кого любишь, именно за то, что любишь, и потому-то, может быть, и поспешила отдаться ему в жертву первая.
