The Kraken



Below the thunders of the upper deep;
Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,
His antient, dreamless, uninvaded sleep
The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee
About his shadowy sides: above him swell
Huge sponges of millennial growth and height;
And far away into the sickly light,
From many a wondrous grot and secret cell
Unnumber'd and enormous polypi
Winnow with giant arms the slumbering green.
There hath he lain for ages and will lie
Battening upon huge seaworms in his sleep,
Until the latter fire shall heat the deep;
Then once by man and angels to be seen,
In roaring he shall rise and on the surface die.

Lord Alfred Tennyson

I love the pictures you posted. I've always been fascinated by tales of a giant squid & octopus lurking under the sea.

Do you know about the Cthulu mythos?

Bonjour!
I love your pictures and your style and your writings about art are just great. I study art history myself and i need to write a paper about René Magritte and Alain Robbe-Grillet (la belle captive) but here in Germany, there is almost no literature about them. Do you have any advice for me? I know this is pretty unusual, but I'm really desperate and I want to learn more about them because I really like their work of art.
Greetings from Germany,
Sabrina

Oui, ça m'a aussi rappelé Cthulhu, apparu un peu plus tard dans le temps...: http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mythe_de_Cthulhu
je te conseille de découvrir le monde fantastique de Lovecraft, soit dit en passant !

Quelle joie d'avoir croisé la jolie Louise hier dans Paris, devant COS plus précisemment.
C'est la petite blonde qui porte les même lunettes que toi, qui avait une robe blanche a petit coeur bleu et qui est une lectrice de ton blog depuis un certain temps.
