A piece for illustrators Anna Rose & Jenny Zych's Strange Paradise asian-horror zine coming out this spring! “Tomie” (Junji Ito) was my first real introduction into j-horror and a stepping stone into the eroguro stuff I’m very fond of now.

エドマンド・デュラック挿絵のエドガー・アラン・ポー詩集。1912年のNew York and London: Hodder and Stoughton:First American trade editionを、2013年に復刻した本です。28点ある図版をこの本を手に取るまで画集やネットなどでバラバラに見ていたのですが、ポーの詩と合わせて見ると、その美しい挿絵の魅力がより深く濃く感じる事ができます。ホント贅沢な詩集です。英文がそのまま読めると良いのですが和訳本と照らし合わせながら楽しんでおります(笑)その中から「Dream-Land」の挿絵と詩を引用してみました。内田クンの「星の時計のLiddell」でリデルが暗唱していた詩です。

Edgar Allan Poe, 1809 - 1849 

By a route obscure and lonely, 
Haunted by ill angels only, 
Where an Eidolon, named NIGHT, 
On a black throne reigns upright, 
I have reached these lands but newly 
From an ultimate dim Thule― 
From a wild clime that lieth, sublime, 
Out of SPACE― out of TIME. 

Bottomless vales and boundless floods, 
And chasms, and caves, and Titan woods, 
With forms that no man can discover 
For the tears that drip all over; 
Mountains toppling evermore 
Into seas without a shore; 
Seas that restlessly aspire, 
Surging, unto skies of fire; 
Lakes that endlessly outspread 
Their lone waters― lone and dead,― 
Their still waters― still and chilly 
With the snows of the lolling lily. 

By the lakes that thus outspread 
Their lone waters, lone and dead,― 
Their sad waters, sad and chilly 
With the snows of the lolling lily,― 
By the mountains― near the river 
Murmuring lowly, murmuring ever,― 
By the grey woods,― by the swamp 
Where the toad and the newt encamp― 
By the dismal tarns and pools 

Where dwell the Ghouls,― 
By each spot the most unholy― 
In each nook most melancholy― 
There the traveller meets aghast 
Sheeted Memories of the Past― 
Shrouded forms that start and sigh 
As they pass the wanderer by― 
White―robed forms of friends long given, 
In agony, to the Earth― and Heaven. 

For the heart whose woes are legion 
‘Tis a peaceful, soothing region― 
For the spirit that walks in shadow 
‘Tis― oh, ‘tis an Eldorado! 
But the traveller, travelling through it, 
May not― dare not openly view it! 
Never its mysteries are exposed 
To the weak human eye unclosed; 
So wills its King, who hath forbid 
The uplifting of the fringed lid; 
And thus the sad Soul that here passes 
Beholds it but through darkened glasses. 

By a route obscure and lonely, 
Haunted by ill angels only, 
Where an Eidolon, named NIGHT, 
On a black throne reigns upright, 
I have wandered home but newly 
From this ultimate dim Thule.
