The Nameless City Free download Þ 104 Ity has very low ceilings and some places are too low for a human being to stand upright Their city was originally coastal but when the seas receded it was left in the depths of a desert This resulted in the decline and eventual ruin of the cit. It is a very standard and typical Lovecraftian horror short story a lone narrator mumbling about his experience of extreme horror in some ruin of a long lost ancient city within an Araby desert He believes this nameless city was built by a race before humans and he may or may not see something horrible in the dead of the night before he turns tail and flees from this ruinThe story is short but the description is long winded and wordy and Lovecraft didn t bother to give you any break by putting some dialogues into the story So 25 stars

The Nameless City Free download Þ 104 The Nameless City of the story's title is an ancient ruin located somewhere in the deserts of the Arabian Peninsula and is older than any human civilizationIn ancient times the Nameless City was built and inhabited by an unnamed race of reptile. While reading Lord Dunsany s The Probable Adventure of Three Literary Men HP Lovecraft became haunted by one Dunsany phrase the unreverberate blackness of the abyss The ghost of that phrase inspired a dream and later when HP awakened he found he possessed the idea for a story That story idea soon became The Nameless City 1921 one of Lovecraft favorites and often considered the first appearance of the Chthulu MythosIt is a favorite with me too Its beginning evokes the eerie sensation of a traveler who stands among ancient ruins visited by harsh winds and sand Algernon s Blackwood s Sand 1912 may be an influence here its continuation tells of hidden temples and subterranean passages filled with strange bas reliefs carved with images which hint at an unsettling story and its ending suggests an even sinister reality beyond these disturbing images of stoneIs this then the first of the Cthulhu tales Well that is stretching things a bit True it is the first Lovecraft story to evoke the Mad Arab Abdul Alhazred here referred to as Alhazred the Arab and to uote his legendary verse That is not dead which can eternal lie And with strange aeons even death may die and our traveler does state that he discovered certain proportions and dimensions in the ruins which he did not like The ruins themselves however are not cyclopean the beings described are not gargantuan and there is not even a hint of ancient slumberers from space who await a sinister awakening Because of this although The Nameless City is an important precursor I continue to consider The Call of Cthlulu 1926 to be the first tale of the MythosStill our little story is an important first It is I believe the first time HP used a long descent into subterranean darkness to evoke terror and it is certainly the first time that he used the appearances of the walls to tell a tale of growing strangeness each bas relief here carrying the events further ahead in time Later the same year he would use a subterranean ascent for similar purposes The Outsider and two years later create his first great tale of subterranean descent the descending levels now leading back in time the horrific The Rats in the Walls Lovecraft would return to the device many times and in At the Mountains of Madness 1931 perhaps his greatest tale of subterranean descent he returned to the bas reliefs he had devised for The Nameless City One last note Although this was one of Lovecraft s favorite tales it was not a popular one with the publishers Although he managed to get it printed in the amateur magazine The Wolverine November 1921 he didn t succeed in placing it in a professional journal until the barely respectable Fanciful Tales published it in 1936 with fifty nine printing errors Weird Tales rejected it twice

This is a short story from HP Lovecraft I ve read a good few Lovecraft stories and for me this one was fairly average I found that Lovecraft included descriptions including the words terrible and horrendous which I think is typical of him but it leaves no room for the reader to think for themselves I struggled to feel the atmosphere of the story and to be honest it didn t scare me The ending felt like it was left open and there was no solid conclusion which for me gave an unsatisfactory end
