    The Hill of Dreams Kindle Ü The Hill Epub / hill download, dreams mobile, The Hill book, The Hill of Dreams KindleThis strange novel by one of the early masters of the weird tale is halfway between Dorian Gray and Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man Its protagonist is the introverted son of a poor Welsh minister striving to become a writer in the indifferent streets of late 19th century London There is no plot to speak of but the vivid prose sings with a rich peculiar music that evokes the inner life of the young author Not for all tastes but definitely worth a try Machen's descriptions of the Welsh countryside and its Roman ruins are particularly memorable

    The Hill of Dreams Kindle Ü The Hill Epub / hill download, dreams mobile, The Hill book, The Hill of Dreams KindleI was so sure I was going to love this one given the 'doomed artist' the synopsis featured my love for this type of character and my previous adoration with Machen's workHis writing was as lyrical as I remembered but whilst his words continued to haunt me the actual story line did not If anything I felt the events could have been protracted for better horrifying appeal Put simply this is a novel about an individual finding themselves and although the mediums used to do so were extraordinary the lengthy discourse on such a small focus alleviated any thrilling element this could otherwise ave containedMy enjoyment was maintained throughout the course of the novel and I still believe Machen to be a masterful writer but perhaps one I would appreciate without the repetitive descriptions however lovely they might be

    The Hill of Dreams Kindle Ü The Hill Epub / hill download, dreams mobile, The Hill book, The Hill of Dreams KindleA deliberate turning away from the status uo of 'securing a position with good prospects' in favor of hills shrouded in mist magic hidden within a ring of trees and later fevered writing in a dusty bedsit in some grey suburban lane The briefest fling scrapes tinder that blazes into months spent dream building an entire ancient city and its mysterious inhabitants then watching in languor as they conduct their arcane business A struggle to rise above the drudgery—to reject the daily coarseness of materialism and its heavy trappings in favor of the written word And yet the utter despondency lying in wait between crests that feeli

    The Hill of Dreams Kindle Ü The Hill Epub / hill download, dreams mobile, The Hill book, The Hill of Dreams KindleEach year I try to read a major book something that is a challenge either because of its length or its density of prose and ideas One year was Moby Dick another Ulysses a third 184 I had supposed that I would give Swann's Way or Finnegans Wake a swing this year but alas I'm just not ready as this year has already gotten the best of me and I doubt I will be able to finish either of those and give them the attention they deserve this year To my surprise Arthur Machen's The Hill of Dreams fits the bill It is not a big or thick book as far as page count
