Nadson, for example, at the time I was interested by the fact that very soon died, and the cause of his premature death was still the same consumption. During his short life he achieved real fame. Huge time for print runs of his books scattered in the blink of an eye, while his poems today I almost do not remember - I think he mostly wrote about nature. I think the key to his popularity lies solely in its painful appearance, makes an indelible impression on the housewives who were in the ground and then the public, read poetry in Russia. In tubercular usually so dramatic ethereal appearance - porcelain-white skin, light gentle blush, detached view, and they are so few live long gleaming, in short. Tuberculosis in the XIX century was a general, perhaps the most romantic disease - it is already in the XX century, after the invention of penicillin and other antibiotics, it finally took place AIDS. And perhaps Nadson also associated with the inhabitants in one of the "humiliated and insulted" Dostoevsky's characters, many of which, however, also suffered from tuberculosis.
