"Senex in Library" is the twenty-sixth chapter of Into the Forest. Similar to the one Senex segment in Volume One, this is only two pages long and is displayed in a comic book fashion.

Summary Edit

The chapter opens up on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 10:19:28 in Venice, Italy. The Senex is in a library and is holding a magnifying glass. He is standing at a table with several books placed in front of him. He is talking with the librarian, who is on a ladder to grab more books for the Senex to read through.

The Senex calls the librarian a fool, and explains that he is already fully aware of most of what he is reading. He threatens the librarian and orders him to provide more books. The Senex uses his magnifying glass on some text in one of the books. The text reads, "Conexuque novo tabescet famulus, mox." It is a Latin phrase, mentioning something about a "new servant." When he holds the magnifying glass up to another piece of text, it appears to be in Greek. A small part of this text appears in blue. The Senex continues talking. It seems he is in search of a way to obtain power and to stop death.

The chapter ends on Saturday, June 7, 2014 at 10:51:03.
