The Call of CthulhuHoward Phillips Lovecraft"The Call of Cthulhu" is one of H. P. Lovecraft's best-known short stories. Written in the summer of 1926, it was first published in Weird Tales, February 1928. It is the only story written by Lovecraft in which the extraterrestrial entity Cthulhu himself makes a major appearance.It is written in a documentary style, with three independent narratives linked together by the device of a narrator discovering notes left by a deceased relative. The narrator pieces together the whole truth and disturbing significance of the information he possesses, illustrating the story's first line: "The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity; and it was not meant that we should voyage far."… (mere)

The Mythos Begins
Review of the Independently Published paperback (2019) of the novella originally published in Weird Tales (1928)

The Call of Cthulhu was Lovecraft's first major story of the occasional series that has been labelled as the Cthulhu Mythos, as retroactively named by writer August Derleth. The stories are generally themed around monstrous beings from other worlds who ruled the earth in ancient times but are now imprisoned in underworlds where they await their resurrection to power. One of the main creatures is a towering tentacle-headed monster with bat-like wings whose name as closely as it can be pronounced in human sounds is Cthulhu. Various present day cults worship the creature and await its return using the chant tagline "In his house at R'lyeh, dead Cthulhu waits dreaming." Lovecraft's novella is an investigation of these cults and various encounters and expeditions related to them.

I read The Call of Cthulhu as a refresher in advance of the recent HBO TV series based on Matt Ruff's Lovecraft Country (2016). It turns out that Ruff's book and its TV series actually has very little to do with the Mythos, aside from a few dream sequences and the occasional Shoggoth-like monster. ( )

A big idea, but heavy and slow. Still, powerful. ( )

Djupt under Stilla havet sover överprästen Cthulhu i R'lyeh, och väntar på att stjärnorna skall ställa sig rätt så att han och hela den ras han tjänar skall vakna och fortsätta sitt obegripliga värv. Runt omkring världen finns diverse kulter till hans ära, kulter som utför outsägliga riter och terroriserar omgivningen.

Ingen av Lovecrafts berättelser är mer känd än The call of Cthulhu, en skrämmande sak även om den berättas i andra eller till och med tredje hand: vår berättare reser och undersöker visserligen olika spår, men han kommer aldrig närmare Cthulhu själv än en berättelse nedtecknad av en numer död man, och även detta tycks ha varit för närgånget för hans smak.

Den utgåva jag nu läst har illustrerats av Francois Baranger, med stora, vackra bilder, där såväl den inledande, närmast akademiska förtjusningen tar toner av gammal journalfilm, nära till Indiana Jones, medan den senare delen, när det omänskliga R'lyeh skall återges visar en regnpiskad värld fylld med underliga formationer och konstiga vinklar (om än inte lika underliga som de Lovecraft beskriver); det är i hög grad kongenialt och närliggande texten, och väldigt snyggt (även om jag önskar att någon lagt lite mer tid på att välja typsnitt som gått lika väl med berättelsen: i en så i övrigt snygg produktion är det en onödig plump med ett som snarare påminner om interna företagsrapporter).

För den som inte tidigare läst Lovecraft är detta en fin introduktion, om än kanske lite väl svårhanterlig till formatet. För de som är förtjusta i monster från bortom stjärnorna och vill ha en riktigt vacker utgåva är detta dock klockrent. ( )

Comenzando con H.P. Lovecraft, este libro te atrapa, interesante, tiene su propia mitología y es corto. Espero leer Los Mitos de Cthulhu. ( )

(Found Among the Papers of the Late Francis Wayland Thurston, of

"Of such great powers or beings there may be conceivably a
survival… a survival of a hugely remote period when… consciousness
was manifested, perhaps, in shapes and forms long since withdrawn
before the tide of advancing humanity… forms of which poetry and
legend alone have caught a flying memory and called them gods,
monsters, mythical beings of all sorts and kinds… ."

- Algernon Blackwood

Oplysninger fra den engelske Almen Viden Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
They worshipped, so they said, the Great Old Ones who lived ages before there were any men, and who came to the young world out of the sky. Those Old Ones were gone now, inside the earth and under the sea; but their dead bodies had told their secrets in dreams to the first men, who formed a cult which had never died. This was that cult, and the prisoners said it had always existed and always would exist, hidden in distant wastes and dark places all over the world until the time when the great priest Cthulhu, from his dark house in the mighty city of R'lyeh under the waters, should rise and bring the earth again beneath his sway. Some day he would call, when the stars were ready, and the secret cult would always be waiting to liberate him.
That cult would never die till the stars came right again, and the secret priests would take great Cthulhu from His tomb to revive His subjects and resume His rule of earth. The time would be easy to know, for then mankind would have become as the Great Old Ones; free and wild and beyond good and evil, with laws and morals thrown aside and all men shouting and killing and reveling in joy. Then the liberated Old Ones would teach them new ways to shout and kill and revel and enjoy themselves, and all the earth would flame with a holocaust of ecstasy and freedom.
There are vocal qualities peculiar to men, and vocal qualities peculiar to beasts; and it is terrible to hear the one when the source should yield the other.
