The House of Dust ebook

by Conrad Aiken

THE HOUSE OF DUST A Symphony. I am indebted to Lafcadio Hearn for the episode called "The Screen Maiden" in Part II. The house of dust.


The House of Dust is a poem written in the four-movement format of a classical symphony. Also deeply influenced by the concepts of modern psychology, Aiken delved deeply into individual human identity and emotion. Summary by Expatriate. Hauntingly beautiful despite its bleak post-World War I depictions of human mortality and loss, the poem develops its movements around central images such as Japanese ukiyo-e ('floating world') woodblock prints, touching the reader's senses with endlessly evocative allusions to wind, sea, and weather.

The House of Dust
I bought this book because of repeated reference to it in Elizabeth Bear's novel Dust. Also, though I'd heard of Conrad Aiken I'd never read his work and I was curious about it. His imagery is so vivd that even when I'm not quite sure what he's saying I can see the picture, hear the sounds, feel the rain, smell the dust. The writing is beautiful.
This is a great book and should be read by all. I should not be required to type a set amount of words.
