Blackwood, Algernon: The Promise of Air. v1. 28 Jan 2022

A visionary, metaphysical novel about Joseph Wimble and his family. He is a placid individual upon whom little makes an impression. All changes, however, when his daughter suggests what it must be like to see things as a bird – the metaphor extends to the emotional ups and downs of him and his wife, and to a new view of the world around him.

His wife once had that spirit of air within her. Joan has the birdlike spirit her mother lost. He watches his wife and daughter, wondering what is the secret of Joan’s free spirit? How is she so one with the air, the birds? How can he bring some of that wonder back to his wife? How can he embrace it himself?

(— From publisher synopsis and Goodreads)

============
One of the foremost British writers of supernatural tales in the twentieth century, Algernon Blackwood (1869–1951) wrote stories in which the slow accumulation of telling details produced a foreboding atmosphere of almost unendurable tension. Though he wrote a number of horror stories, his most typical work seeks less to frighten than to induce a sense of awe. The literary critic S. T. Joshi stated, “His work is more consistently meritorious than any weird writer’s except Dunsany’s.”

Blackwood’s literary renown began in 1908 with the publication of a highly successful collection of stories, John Silence — Physician Extraordinary, featuring a “psychic doctor.” His two best known stories are probably “The Willows” and “The Wendigo”.
