Call Of Cthulhu Pdf
“The Call of Cthulhu” is a short story by American writer H. P. Lovecraft. Written in the summer of 1926, it was first published in the pulp magazine Weird Tales, in February 1928. The narrator, Francis Wayland Thurston, recounts his discovery of notes left behind by his grand-uncle, Brown University linguistic professor George Gammell Angell, after his death in the winter of 1926–27. Among the notes is a small bas-relief sculpture of a scaly creature which yields “simultaneous pictures of an octopus, a dragon, and a human caricature.” The sculptor, a Rhode Island art student named Henry Anthony Wilcox, based the work on delirious dreams of “great Cyclopean cities of titan blocks and sky-flung monoliths.” Frequent references to Cthulhu and R’lyeh are found in Wilcox’s papers. Angell also discovers reports of mass hysteria around the world.
Call Of Cthulhu Summary
Thurston discovers a 1925 article from an Australian newspaper which reports the discovery of a derelict ship, the Alert, of which second mate Gustaf Johansen is the sole survivor. Johansen reports that the Emma was attacked by a heavily armed yacht named the Alert. The crewmen of the Emma killed those aboard the Alert, but lost their own ship in the battle, commandeered the Alert, and discovered an uncharted island in the vicinity of coordinates of 47°9′S 126°43′W. With the exception of Johansen and another man, the remaining crew died on the island. Johansen does not reveal the manner of their death.
