"Reading at the Roche Limit"

Brook Aidan Rosini



“And the will therein lieth, which dieth not.  Who knoweth the mysteries of the will, with its vigor?  For God is but a great will pervading all things by nature of its intentness.  Man doth not yield himself to the angels, nor unto death utterly, save only through the weakness of his feeble will.” ~ Joseph Glanvill

Edgar Allan Poe, “Ligeia,” 171.  From Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque, 1840.
