The Great God Pan is a novella written by Arthur Machen A version of the story was published in the magazine Whirlwind in 1890 and Machen revised and extended it for its book publication together with another story The Inmost Light in 1894 As good as advertised called by Stephen King to be perhaps the greatest horror story in English Not sure about that but I can see how influential this may have been Really weird and has allusions to myth First published in 1890 this is after Poe but before Lovecraft creating something of a bridge between masters of the horror genreThis has all the elements of a great story and created a benchmark for what makes a horror story

Arthur Machen ☆ The Great God Pan mobi

The Great God PanTime to focus on Pan as a useful symbol for the power of nature and paganism The title was taken from the poem A Musical Instrument published in 1862 by Elizabeth Barrett Browning in which the first line of every stanza ends the great god P For Reasons a guy named Raymond wants to experiment on putting a person into some sort of altered state Mary was like super poor and he took her in and fed her so this is fair he says She agrees because of Stockholm syndrome like loyalty to this creep Bad idea genes abound here and then Mary and Raymond are basically out of the narrativeAgain with a really destitute person in the street Herbert an old school chum of Villiers No you're not supposed to know who Villiers is Does he try to help his unfortunate friend? No he just listens to his sad but vague story about his unfortunate marriage and how it ruined his life then says 'bye and goes off and tells other people because he appears to be a nosy gossip and judgy too Machen is by no means a great prose stylist and this book is written in a confused manner Many lurid events are hinted at then broken off with a leaving the reader to surmise what took place It would be fine if the conclusions were obvious but they aren't even when I thought I got what had happened and I found myself several time turning back trying to figure out if a person had died or whatInteresting that Machen named the insignificant artist character Meyrink as the tone of the book is uite reminiscent of Eggeler's illustrations for Meyrink the writerI'm not sure what mythological or anthropological material this is based on if any It doesn't jive with the admittedly minimal material I've read on PanI have a reprint of the 1926 Ayer Company publication that includes Inmost Light and Red Hand as well I was relieved to reach page 90 and find out I was done with this story
