After having read Machen's Hieroglyphics, I'm still trying to get my head around the specifics of the arguments forwarded by the "hermit" who speaks the narrative (presumably a stand-in for Machen himself). In general terms, the appeal to "ecstasy" in literature makes perfect sense, but the waters get muddied right at the end of the Appendix, when (for the first time) the character of ecstasy in literature is explicitly tied to religious experience

Arthur Machen (3 March 1863 – 15 December 1947) was a Welsh author .

Arthur Machen (3 March 1863 – 15 December 1947) was a Welsh author and mystic of the 1890s and early 20th century. These included The Hill of Dreams, Hieroglyphics, A Fragment of Life, the story "The White People", and the stories which make up Ornaments in Jade. In 1899, Machen's wife Amy died of cancer after a long period of illness. This had a devastating effect on Machen. In 1906 Machen's literary career began once more to flourish as the book The House of Souls collected his most notable works of the nineties and brought them to a new audience.

The previous reviewer did not bother to do his homework. If he had, he would have discovered that this is NOT a novel, but a commentary on states of ecstasy in literature. If you are a student of Machen, the fin-de-siecle, or decadent literature, you will find some interesting contemporary criticism here. If you are looking for Machen's fiction, I suggest reading The Three Impostors or The Great God Pan.

Not really worth it.

I had read that Machen's writing inspired HP Lovecraft and Robert E. Howard, so I bought a collection of his horror stories and this book. I finally got around to reading it and I found it to be a long winded story of a writer or someone who goes on and on, page after page, defining what he thinks literature is or is not. May be interesting to some, but I skimmed through the book as best I could (not set up with a working ebook index at all). The best I could tell there really was no story at all, just this long speach about defining literature. Is a newspaper article literature? How about advertising brochures? Anyway, I abandoned it as soon as I realized there was nothing else to the book. Since there were no reviews of any kind about this book, I assumed it was like his other stories, a couple of which I have read.
