Defeated Dogs

PDF EBook by Quentin S. Crisp

EBook Description

This book is the fifth original fiction collection from one of the true eccentrics of modern British writing – stories that blend erudite skill and a startling emotional intensity, classical elegance and unexpected experimentation, sophisticated miserablism and innocent beauty. Defeated Dogs PDF EBookA fairy tale as dark as they come amid a shattering clash of two opposing and poisoned personalities.A Meyrink- PDFtinged dream of atavism and Italy that awakens the dreamer to philosophy and fate. A quiet and perfectly observed journey through the far reaches of Japan.Myth-working fantasy haunted by the motley ghosts of Lord Dunsany and Matsuo Bashô download; , and by the imps of postmodernism.A vision of the afterlife where heaven and hell are entwined in torturous symbiosis.The sinister Black Dog folklore re-imagined as a cosmology of thanatophobia.

For all the diversity of styles in evidence, they are united by the author’s distinctive voice – a window into a crepuscular human world torn between magic and reality, earth and infinity.

“To call Crisp’s stories simple would be to malign them; to say that they are complex would be to slander, for the highest art is that which, in its directness, its naturalness, says what it has to say without pretence.”
