can we talk about how beautiful leroux was with symbolism.
first of all using faust, the man who sells his soul to the devil for the love of the beautiful young girl.
and then the lament of lazarus, about a man who was dead and then brought back to life.
and then we’ll give a tiny tiny tiny bit of credit to ALW for the reference “he’s not Mephistopheles you know” in LND.
in reference to faust.
THAT is why I love this story.
