The published letters to Nietzsche show a woman desperate to claim his friendship, but the sub-text is one of virtual infatuation. For example, Marie reveals, in her letter of 1 September 1879, that she has travelled into Basle and walked under Nietzsche's windows without daring to knock on his door; later, she speaks of avoiding Basle altogether because Nietzsche had left: For the initial period after you left, I did not write to you on purpose; because I did not want to depress you even further, and I only had miserable things to say to myself.

Nietzsche steadfastly refused to see that the remedy for such thwarted lives would lie in providing women with opportunities outside the home.
