Notes on the weird – IV

Only make the reader’s general vision of evil intense enough and his own experiences, his own imagination, his own sympathy and horror will supply him quite sufficiently with all the particulars. Make him think the evil, make him think of it for himself and you are released from weak specifications.

Henry James
