It’s the time of year, and the kind of grey Autumn day, to read H.P Lovecraft.
“The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far.” – The Call of Cthulhu
“Pleasure to me is wonder—the unexplored, the unexpected, the thing that is hidden and the changeless thing that lurks behind superficial mutability. To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” – Collected Essays, Volume 5: Philosophy
Lovecraft is a favorite of mine. Excellent read for today.
Thanks, jernacc. Yes, definitely! Any particular story that you like most?
I love all of his work. Though dunwich horror and reanimator have a special place in my heart as the first works of his I read.
