"...Ci si vedeva come in pieno giorno, e io non mi vedevo nello specchio! Era vuoto, chiaro, profondo, pieno di luce! La mia immagine non c'era eppure gli stavo davanti! Vedevo il grande vetro limpido dall'alto in basso. Lo guardavo con occhi sconvolti; e non osavo andare avanti, né fare un movimento, sentivo bene che lui era là, ma che mi sarebbe sfuggito ancora, lui, il cui corpo impercettibile aveva divorato il mio riflesso."
Guy de Maupassant "L'Horla", 1886

Che cos'è l'Horla? Non è fantasma, eppure rimane invisibile all'occhio umano, non è vampiro, eppure è capace di dominare e comandare l'uomo, risucchiandone le energie durante il sonno. Il racconto di Maupassant si snocciola sottoforma di diario in un crescendo claustrofobico di disperazione, la testimonianza di un uomo perseguitato da un essere invisibile che lo conduce alla pazzia in poche, intense e tragiche pagine. 
A questo racconto è ispirato il film "Diary of a madman" del 1963 con l'indimenticabile Vincent Price.
In foto, un'illustrazione per l'edizione del 1908 👿

The Bloody Chamber and Other Stories is obviously not a very christmassy nor a cheerful choice of read 🙈, but as Jakarta’s sky has been grey and rainy (sometimes stormy too), its gothic and dark tone fit the mood quite perfectly.
☕️
I’ve only read The Bloody Chamber in this collection of short stories. The plot mainly borrows from the popular folktale, Bluebeard. But as mentioned in the introduction part, it wasn’t a retelling of the said tale. It was much more than that. And even though The Bloody Chamber followed the traditional gothic narrative structure, it didn’t feel repetitive; it felt fresh and modern, but at the same time familiar. 
What stood out the most for me were the rich death and sexual imagery, and the (rather strong) allusion to the Abduction of Persephone myth (and if i’m not mistaken, Carl Jung once interpreted Persephone myth as a process of psychological initiation into adulthood, which mainly include the understanding of sex and death). In accordance with the myth and Bluebeard, the relationship between the heroine and her Marquis wasn’t ideal (to put it mildly). Hence, the sexual imagery was not of a sensual tone, but instead, of a disturbing one — suggestive of rape.
TBC also reminded me of The Picture of Dorian Gray. They both shared the themes of the attractive lure of vanity, and a horrible soul transfered onto object(s) - hidden and thus, unrecognisable.
☕️
‘A long, a winding corridor, as if i were in the viscera of the castle; and this corridor led to a door of worm-eaten oak, low, round-topped, barred with black iron. The key slid into the new lock as easily as a hot knife into butter.
No fear; but a hesitation, a holding of the spiritual breath. If I had found some traces of his heart in a file marked: ‘Personal’, perhaps, here, in his subterranean privacy, i might find a little of his soul.’

"Glielo dico io, signorina Corey: in giro c'è una cosa mai vista, e io credo proprio che quel malvagio Wilbur Whateley abbia fatto la fine che si meritava, come vado dicendo a tutti, e penso che lui e il vecchio Whateley devono aver allevato qualcosa in quella casa sbarrata, qualcosa che non è umano neanche quel poco che era lui. Attorno a Dunwich girano cose invisibili, vive, disumane, che non portano niente di buono agli esseri umani."
H.P. Lovecraft, "L'orrore di Dunwich", 1928 
Qualcosa sta crescendo nella fattoria dei Whateley, qualcosa di estremamente antico e oscuro, legato a Yog-Sothoth e riportato in vita dalla magia nera. Come reagirà la comunità di Dunwich quando l'orrore si scatenerà proprio di fronte ai loro occhi? 
In questo racconto, appartenente al mitico "Ciclo di Cthulhu", Lovecraft rivela tutto il suo genio: rituali antichi come il mondo, mostruosità che si celano proprio tra noi, in quella che è una tranquilla cittadina americana, proprio come la stessa Providence in cui è nato e morto lo scrittore. Nessuna scena plateale da blockbuster quindi, perché le forze oscure che impregnano la realtà di Lovecraft si manifestano improvvisamente, in qualunque parte del globo. Insomma, l'orrore è tra noi 👿

It’s definitely sweater weather today ❄️ It also happens to be #ChristmasJumperDay but tbh I prefer literature themed jumpers this year 😏 •

Super soft Frankenstein sweatshirt is available in the shop. For size reference my sister is tiny so the small sweatshirt is a comfy, oversized fit on her 🖤 •

Just a reminder that our last order day for Christmas is Sunday so grab those festive treats now!🎄

“I’ve walked a thousand miles of immoral actions, a philistine paving the way with crass and boorish bricks of ignorance. I am a heathen with no internal compass; a juxtaposition of blind ambivalence and elephantine self-awareness; detrimental extremism. I am a sinner, devout to my own self destruction and yet reverential to my Lords whom I ask for salvation.” - Dan Boleyn .

"Se io non ti amassi così tanto, potrei decidermi ad avere altri amanti cui prosciugare le vene. Ma da quando ti ho conosciuto, il mondo intero mi fa orrore..." E così dicendo piangeva, sentivo le sue lacrime sul mio braccio, che teneva fra le sue mani. Infine si decise, mi punse col suo ago e cominciò a bere il sangue che ne usciva. 
Théophile Gautier, "Clarimonde" o "La morte amoureuse", 1836 
Ho scovato questa raccolta per puro caso in libreria, mentre cercavo "Carmilla" di Le Fanu... non trovando la mia prima scelta, ho istintivamente rivolto la mia attenzione su questo volumetto nascosto in un angolo... ed è stata una piacevolissima scoperta! Pochi racconti, tutti accomunati dalla figura del vampiro, raccontata in tutte le sue sfaccettature... una lettura natalizia "fuori dagli schemi" 👿
Quali saranno le vostre letture gotiche durante le vacanze di Natale?

For my bachelor thesis I read a book by George du Maurier which led to a lot of misunderstandings because everybody knows a Du Maurier, but it's always his daughter Daphne. So now I can finally talk about Du Maurier and actually be talking about the same author as the rest of the world.

"...miserabile disgraziato... niente altro sono... non ho avuto coraggio... non ho osato... l'abbiamo sepolta viva! Non ti avevo detto dell'acutezza dei miei sensi? Ti dico ora che ho sentito i suoi primi deboli movimenti nella cavità della cripta, dentro quella orrenda bara." 🏰

Il racconto che ho scelto per il mio primo post ufficiale è "La caduta della casa degli Usher" di E. A. Poe, scritto nel 1839. Uno degli scritti più rappresentativi dello stile di Poe, il mio primo racconto dell'orrore in assoluto: un'antica dimora ormai in rovina, una narrazione in prima persona che ci fornisce pochi, essenziali dettagli sui protagonisti, un tema ricorrente nei lavori di Poe, quello della sepoltura prematura. Impossibile durante la lettura non essere incalzati da un'ansia esasperata dalle descrizioni dettagliate del protagonista, fino al raggiungimento del colpo di scena finale con l'apparizione della non-morta e una chiusura avvolta nel mistero.

"I learned to recognise the thorough and primitive duality of man; I saw that, of the two natures that contended in the field of my consciousness, even if I could rightly be said to be either, it was only because I was radically both."
-
Robert Louis Stevenson, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

What a brilliantly taut little story! I read this quite a while ago, perhaps I was too young and petulant for classic literature (I wish I was raised on it) because I cast it off as boring crime fiction. But never Gothic and shocking. This is deservedly a constant classic. It’s a nice little wind up; doesn’t hang around too long like Dracula. It satisfies as both a “shilling shocker” and also hints at more in depth cultural themes about human nature—and again Victorian repression, duality and the inherent dual nature of man. Doppelgängers frequent the Gothic novel and this is the ultimate! It still does read like crime, in a very Dickensian London. And the schlocky fun remains, sorry for Stevenson—he apparently hated that. It’s such a shame that popular culture ruins the, now obvious, twist because that would have been a very neat surprise. #drjekyllandmrhyde #robertlouisstevenson #gothicliterature #bookstagram #instabooks #victorianliterature #books #literature #classicliterature #currentlyreading #crimefiction #doppelganger #penguinclassics #bookish #victober #reading #booksofinstagram #thriller #victorian #bookcommunity #australiansummer #readinglist #igreads #bookish #christmasbooks #novel #fiction #classics

I am not the best at drawing...but say hi to Lady Bat or Miss Bat.  She came to me one night, she was walking under the moonlight, she still comes to me some times. One day I will write her stoy...

I have wonderful new, you guys. I have finally finished the rough draft of Chastised with a word count of 96k. Iay have not reached my 100k mark, but that's okay. All that matters is that I finish the story. It doesn't have to be as long as a Stormlight novel (unless that is you goal indeed) make sure the story is finished perfectly. I feel a rush of achievement for finishing this story and I look forward to revising it.😀😁

After that is, until I finish the final draft of my fist novel. The first book in the gothic series The Witches of Atlanta now has a new title, and that is Uncasted Silver☺☺ To those who have read the Scalebound Sorceress on Wattpad, expect some changes in the final draft, and the title which now Uncasted Silver.😉❤ #thewitchesofatlanta #writer #writersofinstagram #novelist #creativewriter #aspiringauthor #author #authorofinstagram #write #justwrite #writerlife #amwriting #finaldraft #creativewriting #writersofig #gothicfiction #literature #gothicliterature #gothicwriter #writingcommunity

That sounds beautiful. I heard "Eleonora" is a sort of autobiography. I wonder if Poe really lived in a place like that? 🌱💛
