ALGERNON BLACKWOOD INCREDIBLE ADVENTURES PDF

I picked this book as it is according to S. His prose style reads easily to modern ears though does feel old fashioned. They generally share a common theme that extends throughout his work of spiritual re discovery and Blackwood obviously felt that people of his age had generally lost touch with their more elemental, spiritual natures. Nothing seems to have any impact until they stumble upon some strange cult in the mountains of France that worship the elemental forces of air and fire. But my favourite of the collection was definitely "The Damned". A haunted house story with a twist.

He had originally studied for Holy Orders, but had abandoned the Church later for private reasons connected with his faith, and had taken to teaching and tutoring instead. He was an honest, upstanding fellow of five-and-thirty, incorruptible, intelligent in a simple, straightforward way. He played games with his head, more than most Englishmen do, but he went through life without much calculation. He had qualities that made boys like and respect him; he won their confidence.

Poor, proud, ambitious, he realised that fate offered him a chance when the Secretary of State for Scotland asked him if he would give up his other pupils for a year and take his son, Lord Ernie, round the world upon an educational trip that might make a man of him.

And Hendricks, without much calculation, had accepted it. They had now been round the world together and had come up from Brindisi to the Italian Lakes, and so into Switzerland. It was middle October. With a week or two to spare they were making leisurely for the ancestral halls in Aberdeenshire.

The job had been exhausting, and he had conscientiously done his best. Lord Ernie liked him thoroughly, admiring his vigour with a smile of tolerant good-nature through his ceaseless cigarette smoke. They were almost like two boys together.
