Inventor of a new mythology and weaver of surprising folklore, Lord Dunsany stands dedicated to a strange world of fantastic beauty . . . unexcelled in the sorcery of crystalline singing prose, and supreme in the creation of a gorgeous and languorous world of incandescently exotic vision. No amount of mere description can convey more than a fraction of Lord Dunsany's pervasive charm.

Words of the Lord

Extended from H. P. Lovecraft's On Reading Lord Dunsany's Book of Wonder

The hours of night unheeded fly,
An d in the grate the embers fade;
Vast shadows one by one pass by
In silent daemon cavalcade.
But still the magic volume holds
The raptur'd eye in realms apart,
And fulgent sorcery enfolds
The willing mind and eager heart.

Read the words of the Lord

The lonely room no more is there—
For to the sight in pomp appear
Temples and cities pois'd in air
And blazing glories—sphere on sphere
The hours of night thus heeded fly,
While still the magic volume holds
Vast visions, one by one pass by
His fulgent sorcery unfolds.

Freed, the words of the Lord

Worshipworth words that seed the mind
All worlds alight that must blaze by
With sight and sound to seer blind
A fulgent night with flameful sky
And blazing glories—sphere on sphere
Temples and cities pois'd in air
That to the sight in pomp appear—
A lonely room no more is there.

Mead, the words of the Lord

Heed the words of the Lord
