    1 thought on “Noctuary”

    1. Diciamo che i racconti di Nottuario garantiscono il minimo sindacale di perturbamento richiesto a questo genere di narrativa. Leggo che Ligotti è considerato il vero erede dell'orrore di Poe e di Lovecraft: basandomi sulla sola lettura di quest'opera, a me sembra piuttosto che Ligotti resti troppo legato ai maestri, scrivendo proprio come Poe e Lovecraft. Stesse ambientazioni, stesse atmosfere, narrazioni totalmente decotenstualizzate che riproposte uguali dopo due secoli non hanno molto senso, [...]

    2. Loved Studies in Shadow. Loved 2/3 of Discourse on Blackness: Tsalal, Mad Night of Atonement, The Strange Design of Master Rignolo. Liked the other one just okay, certainly still well above the average "weird" story. I didn't care at all for Notebook of the Night, not that the pieces were bad, sort of prose poems, but I'm just not a big flash fiction fan and that's what it kind of seemed like to me. I found I just couldn't concentrate on these. I read them all through twice, some a third time be [...]

    3. While Noctuary features some strikingly powerful stories, it's not an entirely successful collection and would seem to be a small let down from Ligotti's previous collection, Grimscribe. This may be because Noctuary, like Ligotti's debut Songs of a Dead Dreamer, is a transitional work. With Songs, it's clear that Ligotti was working to combine his literary influences with his own original voice and ideas to create something strikingly original yet very much within the tradition of weird fiction. [...]

    4. "Throughout my childhood, the dreams that I nightly experienced would become brutally vivid, causing me to awake screaming." Ligotti" dreams and visions nurtured in an atmosphere of sublime dread, growing overnight like some gaudy fungus in a forgotten cellar…" LigottiThose things that dwell in your dreams sometimes want to come out and play, or consume, or control. This book is all about those "creatures of the ID" which once released can not easily be put back where they came from. - Not onl [...]

    5. I racconti di Nottuario accolgono il lettore nelle braccia di un orrore più terreno. In Nottuario, rispetto a Teatro Grottesco, è più viva la superstizione, è più viva la religione, è un buio che arriva dalla strada. Sono vivi quindi, e ben radicate, le maniere in cui l'essere umano prova a ancorarsi alla sua coscienza (quindi Nottuario sta benissimo in terzo posto dopo TG e Cospirazione contro la razza umana). Ligotti riesce a costruire un universo brulicante di infamia, un luogo invivibi [...]

    6. Ligotti is probably technically a better writer than Lovecraft, but in older collections like this, less abstract and philosophical than later, his advantages show less and he seems more like just a more modern and polished version of Lovecraftian legends on the underlying black chaos of the insensible universe. Later on, he would drift towards a different sort of voice, conversational but overwrought and lost in self-reflection, like a pulp Bernhard, but that was all mostly to come at this poin [...]

    7. Although I liked Teatro Grottescobetter than this collection, I found much to enjoy in Noctuary, which makes sense considering the former was published about a dozen years after the latter. Highlights for me include “The Medusa,” wherein the image of Medusa comes to represent self-aware, existential horror; “Mrs. Rinaldi’s Angel,” in which dreams themselves are metaphysical parasites responsible for our mortality; “The Tsalal,” in which reality is revealed to be nothing more than a [...]

    8. Excellent! Really enjoyed these stories, especially the short ones that really can zap you. The art on the hardcover edition is quite scary and I had to turn the book face down on my night table because I couldn't stand the fierce eyes staring at me. "Voice in the Bones" and "Autumnal" are quite unsettling pieces, but my favorite is "Mrs. Rinaldi's Angel." I like it so much I featured it as a free read on my short story blog paulacappa.wordpress/2014/. Poe would certainly admire "The Nameless Ho [...]

    9. Standouts on a first reading:"The Prodigy of Dreams""The Tsalal""The Master's Eyes Shining With Secrets"

    10. Thomas Ligotti, autor de culto, cultiva ese difícil y escaso género que es el terror filosófico. Comparado con escritores de la talla de Poe, con sus casas decadentes, y Lovecraft, con su horror cósmico y sus libros malditos, Ligotti, engendra un terror imbuido de oscuridad y horror del vacío. Ligotti nos acerca a la soledad existencial del ser humano y a la extrañeza del otro. Sus historias, elusivas y enigmáticas, se alejan del terror estandarizado, aquel en el que todo queda explicado [...]

    11. I've been looking forward to reading something again by Ligotti for quite a while now. Having ploughed through (and thoroughly enjoyed) Teatro Grottesco and My Work Is Not Yet Done, the two most readily available collections of his fiction available. So I took advantage of one of his older collections briefly flashing in and out of print with Subterranean Press's run of limited edition hardbacks.It features an introduction by the author himself as he ruminates on the essential essence of the wei [...]

    12. This is a short story collection but at the same time it isn’t. The stories here form a whole, an ethereal tome of nihilistic nightmares and hypnotic prose. The horror isn’t visceral, the horror you feel is from the existential dread these bleak words deliver into the dark corners of your mind. The stories aren’t directly linked but are written in such a way that they bleed into one another, the end of one and start of another hazy and indistinct like fragments of a dream. This book needs [...]

    13. If I could only tell someone one Ligotti quote, this might be it:" 'There is no nature to things you wrote in the book. 'There are no faces except masks held tight against the pitching chaos behind them.' You wrote that there is not true growth or evolution in the life of this world but only transformations of appearance, an incessant melting and molding of surfaces without underlying essence. Above all you pronounced that there is no salvation of any being because no beings exist as such, nothi [...]

    14. Ligotti's name gets flashed a lot in the True Detective writeups, and this collection goes a long way towards explaining why. Very strong atmospherics, heavy purple dying-starlight dread, a lot of sound and a lot of fury signifyingt nothing but Nothing. Best stories are the obvious Lovecraft nods, "The Tsalal" (The Case of Charles Dexter Ward) and "Mad Night of Atonement: A Future Tale" ("Nyarlathotep"). Part three of this collection, Notebook of the Night succeeds as a must-read-all-beginning-t [...]

    15. El nuevo "boom" y fama adquirida por Ligotti están 100% justificadas. ¡Extraordinario libro! Autumnal y Conversations in Dead Languages fueron mis dos historias favoritas.

    16. In the foreword to this book, Ligotti writes a bit about weird fiction. He talks about how that type of fiction is about the unknown, and even describes the quintessential weird fiction story, which is one where a man reaches for his glasses in the dark, only to have someone place them into his hand. That’s the whole story, beginning, middle, and end, and while it’s certainly spooky (mostly due to the uncertainty on who — or what — placed the glasses into his hands), it doesn’t strike [...]

    17. What if Lovecraft had the writing skills of Hemmingway, and the probing, nihilistic genius of Nietzsche? That's Ligotti for you, and he's very, very good. Talk about existential horror! And the horror that Ligotti conjures up is more bleakly evocative than outright scary. No blood and guts in these stories. But prepare to occasionally start up in your chair, put the book aside, and think "Wow. I am terribly, creepily, beautifully depressed." The author's sparse, hypnotic prose conveys a sense of [...]

    18. El hype es real: que bonitas y poco habituales son esas palabras.La popularidad de Ligotti ha ido creciendo poco a poco en los últimos años, debido principalmente a la notoriedad de los trabajos de Lovecraft y otros en la cultura pop actual. El así llamado "El secreto mejor guardado de la literatura de horror", se ha transformado en un autor de culto en toda la extensión de la palabra, uno que los "conocedores del género" no dejan de arrojar a la mesa en cada oportunidad. Pues déjenme deci [...]

    19. s2.quickmeme/img/3c/3c3087Ese es la mejor valoración que merece esta recopilación de relatos de terror. De la mano de uno de los escritores mas rarunos y antisociales que pululan actualmente por el mundo, publicado por segunda vez en España -porque la primera fue una aberracion de la editorial Factoria de Ideas- por la editorial Valdemar, que Cthulhu la tenga en su gloria.Noctuario le debe mucho a Lovecraft, aunque no se parece en casi nada; le debe mucho a Robert W. Chambers, aunque tampoco [...]

    20. Strange expanses not subject to the common viewEs ist ein beachtenswertes Omen, wenn in praktisch jedem Review des Werks Thomas Ligottis ein gewisser anderer Name erwähnt wird, der leider allzu offensichtlich Pate für zumindest einen Teil Ligottis Werk stand. Manche Epigonen schaffen irgendwann den Absprung zur Unabhängigkeit, die meisten bleiben aber für immer im dräuenden, allzugroßen Schatten ihrer Inspiration. Diese Kurzgeschichtensammlung Ligottis steht für das letztere. Manche der h [...]

    21. ¿Qué caminos puede tomar la literatura de horror para que siga dando miedo, desasosiego, espanto, inquietud a estas alturas y en estos tiempos? No digo que lo que cuenta Ligotti —y tal vez, y sobre todo, cómo lo cuenta— sea la única manera, ni la última, que consiga transmitir al lector ese espanto o esa inquietud por lo desconocido, los oscuro o lo sobrenatural, pero sí creo que en sus relatos está el germen de una nueva manera de narrar el horror y por ello, en cierta manera, de rev [...]

    22. After hearing so much about Ligotti, I had high expectations for this collection. Too high, perhaps. Reading Noctuary wasn't the revelatory experience I associate with my memories of The Stranger, Naked Lunch, or The Black Dahlia. It is, however, a damn good read. Lovecraft's influence bleeds through every space in between Ligotti's words here. The themes of alienation and the merging of dream and reality are both prominent. Ligotti is a better technician than Lovecraft, though, more elegant and [...]

    23. Siento que es muy injusto darle 3 estrellas puesto que había relatos muy buenos, sin embargo, la mayoría me resultaron aburridos, no es que estuvieran mal, sino todo lo contrario, se denotaba la calidad del autor pero no es mi estilo.Tenía muchas ilusiones sobre este autor, había visto muy buenos comentarios sobre el, sus obras son inspiradas en grandes figuras como Lovecraft o Poe, King había hablado sobre el pero :/ en fin, quizás más adelante le de otra oportunidad

    24. Thomas Ligotti's stories are more compressed here than in a few of his other collections: the longest story here being 40 pages, but often many of the stories are just a few. This compression gives Ligotti's comsicism less space to articulate itself, so these stories have almost a darkly poetic quality. Ligotti's subtly can even dominate in very brief prose, but this may be more accessible than many of Ligotti's other works because of the compression of some of the stories.

    25. «Sólo seríamos capaces de ocultarnos del horror en el mismo corazón del horror»Y que razón tenía Ligotti, sólo adentrándonos en su extraño y perturbador universo podemos ocultarnos, sentirnos esperanzados, una esperanza falsa esperando por devorarnos. El miembro de la tríada del horror que me faltaba, un heredero mas que digno de la imaginación de Lovecraft y la prosa de Poe. Completamente recomendable. Ansioso por mas títulos de este autor.

    26. Amo Ligotti, odio Ligotti.Ho cominciato a leggerlo quest’estate, partendo da Teatro Grottesco e passando poi per Lo scriba macabro e I canti di un sognatore morto. Ho iniziato più volte La cospirazione contro la razza umana, ma non ho mai superato le prime quaranta pagine.Amo Ligotti, perché molti dei suoi racconti sono magnifici. Porterò con me le sensazioni provocate da “Conversazioni in lingua morta” e “Folle notte di redenzione. Storia futura” per mesi. Soprattutto ho adorato [...]

    27. "It seemed to him that the old mysteries had been made for another universe, and not the one he came to know. Yet there was no doubt that they had once deeply impressed him." --The Order of Illusion.I liked the stories here, but they felt flat (even as I argued to myself that they were meant to feel flat) and I wasn't sure why, until I very nearly reached the end of the collection and read the story named previously. "Ahhhh," said I. "Lovecraft and his predecessors the Gothics are slowly sliding [...]

    28. Bellissima antologia! Un gotico contemporaneo ad ampio respiro. Ligotti è il degno erede di Poe, un maestro nel creare congegni di mistero e curiosità che rimangono in sospeso anche dopo la fine di ogni racconto. Dalla sua scrittura densa di tensione e buio fitto sembra trapelare un certo interesse verso il valore evocativo dei simboli, dalla parola singola (Medusa, Cinotoglice, Tsalal) alle immagini più vivide (maschere a sette occhi, bauli luminosi, idoli di creta, libri misteriosi) e ciono [...]
