Jamesthis was the work of Arthur Reed Ropesa Cambridge don, writing under a pseudonym. Short version – who would enjoy this book?
Fans of Robert E. Howard ‘s Solomon Kane character might also find this tale of a Puritan swordsman battling loathsome evil to be somewhat resonant although this is less action-based than Howard’s work. Those who are looking for a different kind of historical adventure novel, or are interested in stories set during the English Civil War, might also find much to enjoy but it should be stated that these elements are mere backdrop to what is, in essence, a moody Gothic “Curse” story. InHubert Leyton, a Puritan swordsman and scholar, visits the remote seaside town of Marsham to convince his rebellious cousin, the Earl of Deeping, to cease enmities with Cromwell and the local peasants.
But the Earl, dwelling in a rotting stone castle, surrounded with disgruntled soldiers and assisted by a treacherous Italian woman who practices sorcery, is suffering under a strange family curse involving a seeming gelatinous creature that dwells in a fetid pit in the sea-marsh. Leyton is held at the castle and must bear witness to the increasing distress of his mad cousin as, hemmed in by Roundhead forces, they eventually find themselves under monstrous siege.
Now that synopsis may make the book sound more action-packed than it actually is. In truth, while there is some small battle, a duel, and destructive catastrophe, the book is more concerned with its gloomy, brooding tone of dissolute gentry under duress, and its atmospheric setting in a run-down, isolated castle on a bleak, misty, seaside salt-marsh.
I found it effective but not overly engaging – there are some memorable moments an occult ritual that goes awry, utilizing something akin to a “Hand of Glory”; the initial siege scene with gray slime oozing through the walls; the somber and desperate “Last Supper” and the atmosphere grey skies, storms, misty vistas is top-notch. But our lead, being a dedicated if not overzealous Puritan, is a bit of a drip if pleasingly clear-headed and honorable – more fun are The Earl slowly cracking under the pressure and his consort, Signorina Fiammetta Bardi, an Italian woman with some sorcerous asrian and a touch of the Borgias about her.
So, in the end, incierno interesting read I read nifierno text as part of the Uncanny Banquet: Great Tales of the Supernatural anthology. Very readable and, ignoring its seventeenth century setting, very contemporary feeling.
Great book, highly recommended. Jul 17, Oscar rated it liked it Shelves: La historia transcurre endurante la guerra civil inglesa entre los partidarios de Cromwell y los del rey.
