LovecraftSupernatural1,845 words

H. P. Lovecraft
Supernatural Horror in Literature
Edited, annotated, and with a foreword by Alex Kurtagic
London: Wermod & Wermod, 2013

The origins of the modern “weird tale” lie in H. P. Lovecraft’s essay, Supernatural Horror in Literature. Not, of course, that there were not “weird” stories long before; Lovecraft himself traces them as far back as the Book of Enoch and various mediaeval works.[1]  Read more …

Romanticism & Classicism

hulme2(1)7,106 words

I want to maintain that after a hundred years of romanticism, we are in for a classical revival, and that the particular weapon of this new classical spirit, when it works in verse, will be fancy.[1] And in this I imply the superiority of fancy—not superior generally or absolutely, for that would be obvious nonsense, but superior in the sense that we use the word good in empirical ethics—good for something, superior for something.

T. S. Eliot, Part 1

Wyndham Lewis, Portrait of T. S. Eliot, 1938

5,352 words

Part 1 of 2

World War I brought to a climax a cultural crisis in Western Civilization that had been proceeding for centuries, when, in the Spenglerian sense, Money overwhelmed Tradition,[1] or, to resort even to Karl Marx, the bourgeoisie supplanted the aristocracy.[2] Industrialization accentuated the process of commercialization, with its concomitant urbanization and the disruption of organic bonds and social cohesion, which has thrown societies into a state of perpetual flux, with culture reflecting that condition.

Joseph Epstein
In a Cardboard Belt!: Essays Personal, Literary, and Savage
Boston: Mariner Books, 2008

Poking about in the $1 bins at the Strand, I uncovered several copies of a recent book by Joseph Epstein, a collection of essays, In A Cardboard Belt! I recalled reading him in places like Commentary and The New Criterion, but since I haven’t found such outlets tolerable for years, he seems to have slipped from my radar screen. So, I took the plunge.
