Editor's Note 10/22

Que tu meures absous ou damnΓ©,
marmottait Scarbo cette nuit Γ  mon oreille,
tu auras pour linceul une toile d'araignΓ©e,
et j'ensevelirai l'araignΓ©e avec toi!
Whether you die absolved or damned,
wheezed Scarbo in my ear that night,
you'll have a spiderweb for your shroud,
and I'll bury the spider with you!
Aloysius Bertrand
