    I've read and reread the three volumes of De La Mare's short stories with unmitigated delight His works deserves a wider audience His perfect ear in terms of prosody and rhythmical prose is to be admired and envied

    First of all Seaton’s Aunt is undoubtedly a masterwork and must acuire popularity beyond the optically narrow circle of classic ghost story aficionados It was in all probability one of the most prominent sources of inspiration for RAickman’s strange tales Some other stories from this volume left me gasping for breath with wonder — so subtle the turns of phrase were so gentle the artistic touch All my favorites belong to the same collection Lispet Lispett and Vaine The Tree The Vats DLM in his craft is very much like a Japanese master of hieroglyphics assiduousness unfaltering sense of proportion ability to limit himself to a seemingly meager assortment of themes and patterns that others might consider inadeuate for a full fledged story let alone a thick volume and yet to draw the images puzzling euivocal and full of character time after time DLM has something very rare and uniue to impart via his prose and to his texts Henry James’s words apply most aptly ‘Experience is never limited and it is never complete; it is an immense sensibility a kind of huge spider web of the finest silken threads suspended in the chamber of consciousness and catching every air borne particle in its tissue It is the very atmosphere of the mind; and when the mind is imaginative much when it happens to be that of a man of genius it takes to itself the faintest hints of life it converts the very pulses of the air into revelations’On the other hand I’m not at all surprised by the obscure status of DLM’s prose His stories tend to go on and on Waddling through tortuous paths of soporific uneventful narrative often than not winding up nowhere in particular and having headstone epitaphs as the highlight of a long and challenging read is hardly an appealing attraction for any day and age and even less so for our feverish bustle and hustle
