Quentin S Crisp - Gothic Literature - A Brief Outline of the History and Associations of the Word 'Gothic'

Quentin S Crisp - Gothic Literature -  A Brief Outline of the History and Associations of the Word 'Gothic' | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

Gothic literature has been a fascination of mine since boyhood, so it was inevitable that I should jot down some thoughts upon the subject sooner or later. Since those thoughts are both nebulous and extensive, I doubt I can make a definitive statement of them at this time in my life, when I am distracted by many things. For that reason, I should like to reshape some simple pedagogical materials I have previously prepared for the classroom and hope that this may provide an outline of the subject matter that is not entirely redundant and that contains something of my feeling for the genre.

Cthulhu Mythos celestial bodies | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

The following fictional celestial bodies figure prominently in the Cthulhu Mythos stories of H. P. Lovecraft and other writers. Many of these astronomical bodies have parallels in the real universe, but are often renamed in the mythos and given fictitious characteristics.

Gothic Art

Gothic Art | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

These images are the wonderful artwork from my giant collection of vintage paperback gothic novels. I collect them primarily for the cover art, though I do admit to having read quite a few of them. The covers of the gothic books published in the sixties and seventies almost always featured a woman, often in a nightgown, running away from a house or castle with one window lit.

The Gothic and the Grotesque: The Mysteries of the Golden Mansion

The Gothic and the Grotesque: The Mysteries of the Golden Mansion | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

What I have abstracted from my reports thus far is a constant: the Gothic rises out of the graves of the most honoured and ancient of our unknown predecessors.

Discovered: Lord Byron's Copy Of Frankenstein

Discovered: Lord Byron's Copy Of Frankenstein | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

A copy of Frankenstein that belonged to Lord Byron and features an inscription by Mary Shelley has been discovered in a family library - is expected to sell for £400,000 at auction.

The copy of the best known fiction of the Romantic era had lain untouched for more than 50 years in the library of Lord Jay, the economist and Labour politician. His grandson Sammy, was sorting through his political papers for the archives of the Bodleian Library in Oxford, when he made the discovery.

Lovecraft eZine Issue #15 – June 2012

Lovecraft eZine Issue #15 – June 2012 | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

Welcome to issue #15! Mike Davis here, editor and publisher. I think you’ll find this issue to be worth the wait. I have six Lovecraftian tales for you, as well as a touching memoriam to Robert Nelson, a suicidal young poet that HPL corresponded with. Some of the tales in this issue are, in my opinion, the creepiest published here yet. Enjoy issue #15.

Frankenstein app includes original handwritten manuscript, plus 1,300 other things

Frankenstein app includes original handwritten manuscript, plus 1,300 other things | Paraliteraturas + Pessoa, Borges e Lovecraft | Scoop.it

The New York Public Library just released Frankenstein, its second free Biblion installment, and like last year’s World Fair app this one comes loaded with enough primary source material and new content to keep you occupied for a month.

Mary Wallstonecraft Shelley’s original handwritten manuscript is just one of its primary source treasures. You’ll also find scans from a scrapbook started in 1795, a journal of early poems by Percy Bysshe Shelley, Thomas Jefferson’s draft of the Declaration of Independence, Nelson Mandela’s first official African National Congress statement, and various 19th century engravings.

This past weekend the Eraserhead Press crew was at the H. P. Lovecraft Film Festival and CthulhuCon.
