Howard Phillips Lovecraft At the Mountains of Madness
On an expedition to Antarctica, Professor William Dyer and his colleagues discover the remains of ancient half-vegetable, half-animal life-forms. The extremely early date in the geological strata is surprising because of the highly-evolved features found in these previously unknown life-forms. Through a series of dark revelations, violent episodes, and misunderstandings, the group learns of Earth’s secret history and legacy. At the Mountains of Madness is a very good introduction to Lovecraft’s mythology of the Old Ones and the glories and horrors that preceded humankind and that still linger in places. It is a good novella on it’s own, and helpful to understanding events and creatures in his other works. This new edition of Lovecraft’s masterpiece includes two essays “Notes On Writing Weird Fiction” and “Supernatural Horror in Literature”.
Oral Literature of a society are the collection of traditional and mythological beliefs expressed orally by means of specialized voiced forms. The term mythology can refer either to a collection of myths or to the study of myths. In folklorist, a myth is a sacred narrative usually explaining how the world or humankind came to be in its present form, although, in a very broad sense, the word can refer to any traditional story. The main characters in myths are usually gods, supernatural heroes and humans. Indian mythology is the body of traditional narratives associated with Native American religion from a myth graphical perspective. Native American belief systems include many sacred narratives. Such spiritual stories are deeply based in Nature and are rich with the symbolism of seasons, weather, plants, animals, earth, water, sky & fire. The principle of an all embracing, universal and omniscient Great Spirit, a connection to the Earth, diverse creation narratives and collective memories of ancient ancestors are common. Traditional worship practices are often a part of tribal gatherings with dance, rhythm, songs and trance e.g. the sun dance.
