LovecraftSupernatural1,845 words

H. P. Lovecraft
Supernatural Horror in Literature

The Scholar as Storm Trooper:
Goldwin Smith’s “The Jewish Question”

Goldwin Smith, 1823–1910

Goldwin Smith, 1823–1910

ThePartisanFenek Solère
The Partisan
London: Iron Sky Publishing, 2014

“How disheartening to those who uphold the myth of manhood based on muscles and metallic strength: this alone is the true man, the absolute man! He absorbs within himself the ambiguous virtue of the female. Lao-tzu talks about the invisible magic of the feminine, which in a feline fashion attracts and absorbs in itself man’s action . . .”
