Dreams in the Witch House – H.P. Lovecraft.

Opis towaru

One of the masters of ‚weird fiction’, H. P. Lovecraft expanded the vast boundaries of the horror genre with his vividly imagined stories of exotic and fantastical otherworlds, nightmarish dreamscapes or the supernatural terrors lurking beneath the surface of small-town America.

The shadow of New England’s witch-hunting past hangs over many of the tales, as in ‚The Shunned House’ and ‚The Dreams in the Witch House’, in which malevolent spectres return to haunt the region. Others, such as ‚From Beyond’ and ‚The Shadow Out of Time’, depict the catastrophic results when cosmic channels of time and space are opened, while stories such as ‚Polaris’ and ‚The Doom that Came to Sarnath’ portray the downfall of mythical civilizations.

Dreams in the Witch House – H P Lovecraft

Opis towaru

„The dreams were wholly beyond the pale of sanity . . . ”
Plagued by insane nightmare visions, Walter Gilman seeks help in Miskatonic University’s infamous library of forbidden books, where, in the pages of Abdul Alhazred’s dreaded Necronomicon, he finds terrible hints that seem to connect his own studies in advanced mathematics with the fantastic legends of elder magic. The Dreams in the Witch House, gathered together here with more than twenty other tales of terror, exemplifies H. P. Lovecraft’s primacy among twentieth-century American horror writers.

This volume is a companion to the other two Penguin Classics edition of Lovecraft’s work: The Call of the Cthulhu and The Thing on the Doorstep. This original collection presents the definitive texts of the work, including a newly restored text of „The Shadow out of time” along with S. T. Joshi’s invaluable introduction and notes.

For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.
