Goethe Month: The unforgettable sight of Margareta

July 25, 2010

Asia forever.


By God, but that’s a lovely girl!
More lovely than I’ve ever met.
So virtuous, so decent, yet
A touch of sauciness as well!
Her lips so red, her cheeks so bright —
All my life I’ll not forget that sight.

(Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Faust, Act I, Scene 10, 2609–15.)

Bella Argento. You have just been blinded. With Science.
