Welcome to Girl, Goodnightmares where we help you sleep in melanated peace with a spooky twist. Tonight, we will be reading “The Undertaker” a short story written by Alexander Pushkin in 1831.
The Undertaker is the story of Adrian Prohoroff, an undertaker who has recently moved to a new place. He is invited to a wedding by his new neighbor and has a little too much to drink. Feeling insulted, Adrian leaves the party and falls into a drunken slumber where he is visited by the corpses that he has previously buried.
