    One thought on “Ex Oblivione”

    1. Lovecraft strikes again with his silky smooth dream like prose He writes about ideas that, at the time, were totally foreign and thought provoking, but now are widely accepted and old news Evidence of his genius I think.In Ex Oblivione, the way the prose feels otherworldly and somehow connected to the themes of the story afterlife and dreams is pretty cool.And even though it stands out like the Call of Cthulhu, and even though you can look back and see why people before were wild about him, the [...]

    2. I knew not which to believe, yet longed and to cross for ever into the unknown land for doubt and secrecy are the lure of lures, and no new horror can be terrible than the daily torture of the commonplace.

    3. This prose poem reminds me a bit of Celepha s It is beautiful It is written in the first person and told by someone who found beauty and peace in dreams.While roaming through dream lands the narrator finds a papyrus that tells about a locked gate that can be unlocked using a special drug.Beyond the gate he finds two truths.

    4. I ve never read anything by H.P Lovecraft The story is a single page short story that is very beautifully written Hopefully, this won t be my last Lovecraft I totally recommend this to everyone.

    5. The transition between the waking world and the wisdom of dreams, and reading the text after reading similar texts about the dreams realm make me wonder, why do I read about the worlds of dream Is it a trigger from my subconscious to seek the wisdom of texts for consultation about the dilemmas of my restless sleep Am I trying to find a way to remember the composure of my dreams Am I supposed to know what I dream of Will I, if I remember, be capable of comprehending, or is it a language that only [...]

    6. When the last days were upon me, and the ugly trifles of existence began to drive me to madness like the small drops of water that torturers let fall ceaselessly upon one spot of their victim s body, I loved the irradiate refuge of sleep In my dreams I found a little of the beauty I had vainly sought in life, and wandered through old gardens and enchanted woods In certain moods I could read that and think, Yeah, I ve been there In most moods I think, Grow up The disaffection of the pampered has [...]

    7. I have arranged my thoughts on this short story into a haiku Death s gentlest greeting,Beguiling in sleep s soft realm,Free from that without.

    8. Very visual, what makes it great is that it describes a day dream realm and it still makes it sound like the worst place on earth.

    9. In many ways, it reads like a poem than a short piece of prose The descriptive language was spot on, and I found myself many times dazed by his use of strong adjectives Judging the subject matter, I can only imagine that was his intention My favourite part must have been Some of the dream sages wrote gorgeously of the wonders beyond the irrepassable gate, but others told of horror and disappointment I knew not which to believe, yet longed and to cross forever into the unknown land for doubt a [...]

    10. I admit I am kind of a sucker for purple prose, but I really love this piece I find it interesting this came out when it did The content may not be overly thought provoking in this day and age, but his take on the unknown here is interesting Is life worth living Or are dreams what are really worth returning to Much in the same way, it seems, that once we die and go past the threshold of that bronze gate, we return to oblivion from whence we came Like what That s not a question I m asking in the [...]

    11. There are some wonderful words and prose in here, short and sweet, but it left me a little cold, and certainly didn t draw me in.Whilst delving through Lovecraft s canon of work I appreciate that I m not going to love everything, but this felt like a school exercise than a genuine experience.That said, I still wonder at his ability to transport himself and the reader to ethereal plains with such ease.

    12. But as the gate swung wider and the sorcery of drug and dream pushed me through, I knew that all sights and glories were at an end for in that new realm was neither land nor sea, but only the white void of unpeopled and illimitable space So, happier than I had ever dared hoped to be, I dissolved again into that native infinity of crystal oblivion from which the daemon Life had called me for one brief and desolate hour.

    13. A drug induced trip into oblivion Feels like a fragment of a journal rather than an actual story or prose poem as I ve seen it described.On a tangent, it feels a bit like a cheat to be logging all these Lovecraft stories separately, but I m working my way through a digital Complete Works, and I want to have a record of everything I ve read Maybe I should pull these off my feed Since I m on vacation right now, I ve been reading quite a bit.

    14. Ex Oblivione is a prose poem, written in first person It tells of the dreams of a presumably dying man In his dreams, the man is walking through a valley and encounters a vine covered wall with a locked bronze gate therein He longs to know what lies beyond the gate, described inconsistently by the few wise men that made it though either as something incredible, or as a ig disappointment.

    15. This poem captures the Is real live worth it Or is the dream the reality in a way that only Howard could.

    16. Very short, but even within the few pages were the characteristic purple prose Not much to say beyond that

    17. This one felt too much like the premise of Celephais I want to get somewhere It s glorious I must take a drug die to get there So I didn t enjoy it as much as I was hoping I would.
