He was an avid lover of nature and the outdoors, and many of his stories reflect this. Could their very lives be in danger?

Return to Book Page. Its possible that the horror elements are just really dated. I decided to read this on audio since it was cheap and I have too many Netgalley books that I should be reading. I thought blaclwood was quite good and liked the writing.

Like a beautiful song where you don’t care what the lyrics say. Written by a man that lived in a very different time from us today. A long quote that shows the feel of this book.

Like The Wendigo, there isn’t much in term of confrontations between man and the supernatural, saucez of the dread comes from the narrator’s assessments of the events happening around him. And yet this did not need anything more when the landscape played such a large, central focus and enhanced the eerie qualities of the piece to overwhelmingly terrifying proportions!


See all 3 questions about The Willows…. The canoe somehow is found with a hole in the bottom, kos have crossed the forbidden zone. Silazak u Egipat – 3.

But those who love elegant writing and a memorable, atmospheric tale certainly will. Nice style of writing though. Two men are attempting to canoe the entire course of the Blackdood as Blackwood himself had done until they are forced by high flood waters to take refuge on a tiny, crumbling, willow infested island.

Los Sauces

Preview — Los sauces by Algernon Blackwood. In his late thirties, saucez moved back to England and started to write stories of the supernatural. On the first page it clearly says: If I had a book-shelf titled “Sedative”, then this book would be on it.

This story is told by an unnamed man who, along with his unnamed traveling companion, referred to saauces as the Swede, travels down the Danube River by canoe on what was supposed to be an exhilarating adventure.

This book is a lyrical, poetic, and deeply descriptive slice of horror. Maybe shouldn’t saucs horror genre. It is eloquent, purposeful and masterfully builds upon the sense of dread and doom.

The willows along the river manifest strange movements, independent of the fierce winds assaulting the small island where he and the Swede have camped for the night.

It is easy for us to relate with the two men as they go through this dark experience.

Los Sauces : Algernon Blackwood :

I know the writing style, the atmosphere, the gothic terror tone, were all weaved together to make blackkwood story that is surreal and messes with your head The narrator is very proper and keeps things moving despite saucez sometimes slow pace of the narrative and though it ends too abruptly for my liking it did give me a decent case of the creeps.


Now to me, a short story and a novella isn’t the same thing and shouldn’t be called the same thing in the same book, and for no reason at all saucee it bugs me. An anachronistically early appearance of the two-guys-smoke-dope-on-an-island-and-draw-interesting-conclusions trope, a full eighty years before the trope really took off in the late 80’s. Here art and restraint in narrative reach their very highest development, and an impression of lasting poignancy is produced without a single strained passage or a single false note.

Maybe it’s truly Man fighting against himself and against his fears. English writer of ghost stories and supernatural fiction, of whom Lovecraft wrote: View all 6 comments.
