This passage from section fourteen of Vita Nuova:
As my fantasy started to stray, faces of women appeared, their hair loose, telling me, “You too will die.” Then, after these women, some grotesque faces appeared, horrible to look at, telling me: “You are dead.” With my fantasy starting to stray like this, I came to a point at which I didn’t know where I was. And I seemed to see women walking along with their hair all loose, crying as they went, in extraordinary pain. And it seemed I saw the sun go dark, so that the stars showed a color that made me think they were weeping; and it seemed that the birds flying through the air were falling dead, and that there were tremendous earthquakes.
