#1  GrannyGrump 01-30-2022, 02:51 PM
A complex, leisurely-paced story of a woman and two men who had come together in a former incarnation in ancient Egypt in a love triangle that ended tragically in two deaths, and now have a second opportunity to work out the problems of their relationships.

… we participate almost relentlessly in the subtle, repetitive inner turmoil of a man involved in the Eternal Triangle. The writing is evocative at times, and Blackwood shows deep insight into what it’s like to love someone passionately, idealistically, and at times hoplessly.

One of the foremost British writers of supernatural tales in the twentieth century, Algernon Blackwood (1869–1951) wrote stories in which the slow accumulation of telling details produced a foreboding atmosphere of almost unendurable tension. Though he wrote a number of horror stories, his most typical work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe. The literary critic S. T. Joshi stated, “His work is more consistently meritorious than any weird writer’s except Dunsany’s.”

Blackwood’s literary renown began in 1908 with the publication of a highly successful collection of stories, John Silence — Physician Extraordinary, featuring a “psychic doctor.” His two best known stories are probably “The Willows” and “The Wendigo”.
