Marguerite has collapsed against a prie-dieu, a Bible in her hand. She says, "Unhappy one! Oh, if I could only remove the thoughts that follow each other in the tumult in my soul and rise up against me!" Mephistopheles, here called The Bad Spirit, is bending over her and pointing to the heavens. He says, "God's anger has fallen upon you! The trumpet sounds....misfortune for you." (Virginia K. Anderson 01/21/94)
