Read full description of the books:

I confess I am not an accomplished reader of poetry and may revisit this collection in some years’ time when I’m closer to claiming that distinction. For now though, Death Poems provides a different experience to Ligotti’s fiction.

There’s a decidedly cold, sparse, utilitarian feel to these works which I took as a deliberate reflection of both philosophical inclination and artistic intent. I can’t imagine it being described as ‘lyrical’. Nor does it bear much stylistic resemblance to even those moments of his short fiction which have an aspect of ‘prose poetry’ to them.

It is, as usual for Ligotti, something of an ode to nihilism. The stress is on how little any approach to life and death matters, and for some they may find a certain peace and beauty in that. As I say, I will reserve judgement until I’m better qualified to give it.

My copy is #164/300 signed hardcovers from the 2013 edition. The cover artwork and interior illustrations by Richard Kirk are quite beautiful in a slightly grotesque, surreal and yet naturalistic way.

Read information about the author

Ebook Death Poems read Online! Thomas Ligotti is a contemporary American horror author and reclusive literary cult figure. His writings, while unique in style, have been noted as major continuations of several literary genres—most prominently Lovecraftian horror—and have overall been described as works of "philosophical horror", often written as philosophical novels with a "darker" undertone which is similar to gothic fiction. The Washington Post called him "the best kept secret in contemporary horror fiction"; another critic declared "It's a skilled writer indeed who can suggest a horror so shocking that one is grateful it was kept offstage."
