All Hallows Read, pt 1

October 3rd, 2017

Inspired by Ms Jonusas, I think I’ll try All Hallows Read. For inspiration, I intend to work my way through Lovecraft’s Supernatural Horror in Literature and read a selection of works mentioned there. Short and familiar, and more essay than tale, I’ve begun tonight with Thomas de Quincey’s “Levana and Our Ladies of Sorrow” from his Suspiria de Profundis (1845). Next up: M.P. Shiel’s translation of Auguste Villiers de l’Isle-Adam’s “La torture par l’espérance”, as “A Torture by Hope”.

(Update: Okay, maybe not next up, as I’ve instead just read M.R. James’ “Lost Hearts” from his Ghost Stories of an Antiquary (1904), and Elizabeth Gaskell’s “The Old Nurse’s Story” (1852), originally published in Dickens’ magazine, Household Words.)
