Liberal Arts Reading Group--November 2, 2018

This week at our little liberal arts reading group let's discuss Metzengerstein. This haunting tale, which appears in the Selected Writings of Edgar Allen Poe, begins with the following Luther quote.

Pestis eram vivus—moriens tua mors ero.

If anyone would care to translate this—or one of the French lines in the story—he or she will win the admiration of the group.
