In what sense
Jane Austin - Mansfield Park - a conversation between several characters, the main two being Fanny price and Henry Crawford.
Henry is trying to tell Fanny how much he loves her but she is rejecting him. He eventually sats that her rejection is killing him, and she replies "no man dies of love but on the stage". Meaning she doesn't believe it - that only happens in fiction not in real life
My opinion men often die of a broken heart!
Ah, very nice and complete answer!!
Great answer - and way more concise than I could have put it. :)
