The Austere Academy
BeschreibungAs the three Baudelaire orphans warily approach their new home Prufrock Preparatory School : they can't help but notice the enormous stone arch bearing the school's motto Memento Mori or "Remember you will die." This is not a cheerful greeting and certainly marks an inauspicious beginning to a very bleak story just as we have come to expect from Lemony Snickett's Series of Unfortunate Events the deliciously morbid set of books that began with The Bad Beginning and only got worse.
PortraitLemony Snicket first received his education from public schools and private tutors, and then vice versa. One of the few recipients of a lifetime Bachelors Degree, he has been hailed as a brilliant scholar, discredited as a brilliant fraud, and mistaken for a much taller man on several occasions. His researching skills are currently and devoutly concentrated on the plight of the Baudelaire orphans.
