INTRODUCTION A young musician of an unhealthily sensitive nature and endowed with vivid  imagination has poisoned himself with opium in a paroxysm of love-sick  despair.  The narcotic dose he has taken, too weak to cause death, throws  him into a long sleep accompanied by the most extraordinary visions.  In  this condition his sensations, feelings, and memories are translated, within  his sick brain, into the form of musical thoughts and images.  Even the  beloved one has taken the form of melody in his mind, like a fixed idea  which is ever returning and which he hears everywhere.
