    The first non horror story I have read by Lovecraft, though there is still an element of unease throughout the tale There s a large amount of references to Greek mythology within the work and is the basis for the tale.

    I don t think Lovecraft was as good at poetry as he was at writing prose Yet..This left me utterly surprised First of all, there are no elements of horror throughout the story And this is not a bad thing It s highly poetical, angelic Beautiful as if ripped apart from one of his dreams There is not much to say, it s short and sweet Like a bitter candy, it has its bad parts too If you want to read it only for the poetry, thinking it s a poetic masterpiece, don t get your hopes up But I don t think Lovecraft was as good at poetry as he was at writing prose Yet..This left me utterly surprised First of all, there are no elements of horror throughout the story And this is not a bad thing It s highly poetical, angelic Beautiful as if ripped apart from one of his dreams There is not much to say, it s short and sweet Like a bitter candy, it has its bad parts too If you want to read it only for the poetry, thinking it s a poetic masterpiece, don t get your hopes up But instead, read it for the story, for the idea 3,90 almost getting to 4, butnot really

    Poetry is the language of the gods A surprisingly lovely tale with a Narnia like setting and a touch of Poe s romantic poetry.

    Not for me I found this interminable Audible edition narrated by Pamela Garelick Not a fan of the narration either.

    Poetry is the language of the gods, Greek gods, specifically Interesting idea, and very flowery prose, but that s about it for me.

    Poetry and the Gods is a short story by H P Lovecraft and Anna Helen Crofts The two authors wrote the story in or shortly before the summer of 1920 It was published the following September in United Amateur, which credits Lovecraft as Henry Paget Lowe In the story, a young woman dreams that she has an audience with Zeus, who explains to her that the gods have been asleep and dreaming, but they have chosen a poet who will herald their awakening.The story was written after The Green Meadow Poetry and the Gods is a short story by H P Lovecraft and Anna Helen Crofts The two authors wrote the story in or shortly before the summer of 1920 It was published the following September in United Amateur, which credits Lovecraft as Henry Paget Lowe In the story, a young woman dreams that she has an audience with Zeus, who explains to her that the gods have been asleep and dreaming, but they have chosen a poet who will herald their awakening.The story was written after The Green Meadow , and before The Crawling Chaos two tales that Lovecraft and Winifred Jackson co wrote with a Greek mythology basis 2 What Anna Helen Crofts contributed to Poetry and the Gods is unknown Lovecraft scholar S T Joshi reports that she appeared sporadically in the amateur press, and may have been introduced to Lovecraft by Winifred Jackson Lovecraft s surviving letters do not mention Poetry and the Gods.In his 1955 essay on the Cthulhu Mythos, Lovecraft scholar George Wetzel compares the messenger god Hermes in Poetry and the Gods with Nyarlathotep, the messenger of Azathoth Wetzel considers the dream communication used by Hermes to be the same psychic device used later by Cthulhu to contact his cult followers.The story begins in a drawing room on an April evening just after the Great War A young woman, Marcia, is there alone, feeling an immeasurable gulf that separates her soul from her uninspiring surroundings 20th century life and the strange home in which she lives She wonders whether she was born in the wrong age She leafs through a magazine to look for some soothing poetry, and lands on an atmospheric free verse poem With its sensually rich images, the poem sends her into a reverie Marcia believes it to herald a new age She repeats its words to herself as she drifts off to sleep Hermes appears before her sleeping body, and confirms that a new age is indeed coming one in which the gods wake from their own dream filled sleep, and take action.Hermes carries her to the court of Zeus, where Apollo, Dionysus, the Muses, and the Bacchae also wait Long have we spoken only through our dreams, Zeus tells her, but the time approaches when our voices shall not be silent It is a time of awakening and change He says that the gods have chosen a poet to blend into one glorious whole all the beauty that the world hath known before, and to write words wherein shall echo all the wisdom and the loveliness of the past This consummate poet is to be the harbinger of the gods awakening He was chosen not only by the gods themselves, but by select poets whom Zeus and Apollo granted immortality and honor In turn, these six poets come forth and contribute lines of verse Homer, Dante, Goethe, Shakespeare, Milton, and Keats They continue until just before dawn, and Hermes carries Marcia back to her house.Years later, Marcia is with the poet foretold by Zeus When she tells him that his poetry is fit for the gods , Zeus sends her a vision and declares By his word shall thy steps be guided to happiness, and in his dreams of beauty shall thy spirit find all that it craveth

    For it is in poetry that Gods speak to men Lovecraft partnered with friend Anna Helen Crofts to produce this short tale of a woman who, after reading a brief piece of poetry, dreams that she encounters Zeus as well as other Greek gods and god like mortals of poetic renown.As it does in many of Lovecraft s other publications, a dream state provides the primary setting for this story, this time heavily incorporating elements of Greek mythology Like A Reminiscence of Dr Samuel Johnson, or For it is in poetry that Gods speak to men Lovecraft partnered with friend Anna Helen Crofts to produce this short tale of a woman who, after reading a brief piece of poetry, dreams that she encounters Zeus as well as other Greek gods and god like mortals of poetic renown.As it does in many of Lovecraft s other publications, a dream state provides the primary setting for this story, this time heavily incorporating elements of Greek mythology Like A Reminiscence of Dr Samuel Johnson, or The White Ship to an extent , Poetry and the Gods is another departure from Lovecraft s common themes of mystery and cosmic horror.The plot is quite simple, but the prose is absolutely beautiful I ll close this review with another quote By his word shall thy steps be guided to happiness, and in his dreams of beauty shall thy spirit find all that it craveth
