DEVIL'S TOR NEW EDITION Long-awaited New Edition of Lindsay's fatal masterpiece
'Devil's Tor', published in 1932, is the undoubted masterpiece of David Lindsay.
Many of the extraordinary and disturbing themes of 'A Voyage to Arcturus' are explored more deeply and expressed more clearly in it.
The story describes the mental processes and experiences of various people drawn by an active Fate to Devil's Tor, a minor Dartmoor height. Lives are ended, shattered and transformed by truly cosmic forces.
Nowhere in printed English is the working of the Unseen in living minds more vividly drawn than in David Lindsay; and nowhere in Lindsay more magnificently than in 'Devil's Tor'.
The cover features a double-axe or Labrys reconstructed from images on pottery fragments excavated at Mycenae. This symbol of the Goddess features strongly in the book.
