A novel on nature mysticism,
This review is from: The Centaur (Paperback)
Readers looking for a horror story should look elsewhere, as this novel is primarily concerned with nature mysticism. There is relatively little plot as such, and the book is primarily devoted to expounding Blackwood's views on religion and nature. Inspired by the works of Fechner and William James, this novel presents nature (or more specifically the planet earth) as a living, divine entity to which man must return.
