R70-77: Time and the Gods

r70-77.jpg

R70-77:
Time and the Gods
 is the second book by Irish fantasy writer Lord Dunsany, considered a major influence on the work of J. R. R. Tolkien, H. P. Lovecraft, Ursula K. Le Guin, and others.

The book was first published in hardcover by William Heinemann in September, 1906, and has been reprinted a number of times since. It was issued by the Modern Library in an unauthorized combined edition with The Book of Wonder under the latter’s title in 1918.

Dunsany had a brief preface in the original edition and added a new introduction to the 1922 edition.

The book is a series of short stories linked by Dunsany’s invented pantheon of deities who dwell in Pegāna. It was preceded by his earlier collection The Gods of Pegāna and followed by some stories in The Sword of Welleran and Other Stories.

The book was illustrated by Dunsany’s preferred artist Sidney Sime, who provided a range of black and white plates, the originals of which are still at Dunsany Castle. These were present in the 1906 and 1922 editions, not in the unauthorised collections and not in most modern reproductions.

The title is thought to have been influenced by Algernon Swinburne, who wrote the line “Time and the Gods are at strife” in his 1866 poem “Hymn to Proserpine”.

The Gods of Pegāna part 2

r69.jpg

The Gods of Pegāna is the first book by  Lord Dunsany, published in 1905. The book was reviewed favourably but as an unusual piece. The book is a series of short stories linked by Dunsany’s invented pantheon of deities who dwell in Pegāna.
It was followed by a further collection, Time and the Gods, and by some stories in The Sword of Welleran and Other Stories and in Tales of Three Hemispheres. In 1919 Dunsany told an American interviewer: “In The Gods of Pegāna I tried to account for the ocean and the moon. I don’t know whether anyone else has ever tried that before”.

Reading 60-66:Supernatural Horror in Literature

Supernatural Horror in Literatureis a long essay by the horror writer H. P. Lovecraft surveying the topic of horror fiction. It was written between November 1925 and May 1927 and revised during 1933–1934. It was first published in 1927 in the one-issue magazine The Recluse. More recently, it was included in the collection Dagon and Other Macabre Tales(1965).

Lovecraft examines the beginnings of weird fiction in the gothic novel (relying greatly on Edith Birkhead‘s 1921 survey The Tale of Terror) and traces its development through such writers as Ambrose BierceNathaniel Hawthorne, and Edgar Allan Poe (who merits his own chapter). Lovecraft names as the four “modern masters” of horror: Algernon BlackwoodLord DunsanyM. R. James, and Arthur Machen.

An H. P. Lovecraft Encyclopedia terms the work “HPL’s most significant literary essay and one of the finest historical analyses of horror literature.” Upon reading the essay, M. R. James proclaimed Lovecraft’s style “most offensive”. However, Edmund Wilson, who was not an admirer of Lovecraft’s fiction, praised the essay as a “really able piece of work…he had read comprehensively in this field—he was strong on the Gothic novelists—and writes about it with much intelligence”. David G. Hartwell has called “Supernatural Horror in Literature”, “the most important essay on horror literature”.
