Sub Rosa Eight tales by Robert Aickman acknowledged as one of the finest British authors of ghost stories or what he himself termed strange stories As R B Russell writes in his Introduction to this high uality Tartarus Press publication the stories in Sub Rosa represent Aickman at the height of his powers Although I m relatively new to Aickman I ve only read Compulsory Games and Night Voices I entirely concur a reader would have to dig deep to discover tales eual in their sheer dramatic force and nuanced poetic language Or expressed in concise modern parlance every single tale in this collection packs a WALLOP all caps to emphasize the impact And that s impact as in each tale had me reeling especially after I read the concluding paragraph Let me tell you folks Robert Aickman possessed uniue storytelling giftsEvery strange story in Sub Rosa deserves its own comprehensive review most especially the three of novella length The Inner Room The Unsettled Dust and Into the Wood However in the spirit of brevity I ll contain myself and focus on two from the collection that will remain with me for years to comeTHE CICERONES John Trant entered the Cathedral of Saint Bavon at almost exactly 1130 That s the opening sentence that serves to set the stage for this Robert Aickman masterpiece The cathedral is in Gent Belgium and John Trant is a thirty two year old bachelor and by his own account an ordinary Englishman with a specific passion for travel What strikes Trant upon entering the vast building is its silence and the fact that unlike the many other Belgian cathedrals he visited he s alone alone that is except for the people in the tombs As his usual custom he leans against a column and reads the history of the Cathedral in his guidebook he then walks toward the front where the book notes Carved oak pulpit with marble figures all by Laurent Delvaux But just then he spots something extraordinary a figure in the pulpit slumping forward over the preacher s cushion Trant could see the top of a small bald head with a deep fringe almost a halo of white hair and on each side widespread arms with floppy hands The figure isn t a priest rather he is wearing garments of several bright colors Although unnerved Trant moves forward once passing the next column and looks again the figure is gone At this point Trant hears a laugh and turns round behind him stands a slender young man in a grey suit The man speaks with a vague foreign accent Excuse me I saw it myself so don t be frightened Trant replies It was terrifying Out of this world to which the young man asks Did you notice the hair Trant acknowledges he most certainly did and asks in turn What did you make of it The young man answers Holy holy holy The figure in the pulpit and the exchange with the young man are but the first in a series of mysteries the English tourist encounters including a number of the cathedral s paintings many horrific and grotesue in the extreme Trant converses with yet another young man and also has brushes with several boys that appear to him as if existing in another otherworldly realm and might appear to the reader as creepy creepy Mystery upon mystery until the concluding eerie event whereupon the boys and young men along with the bald man with the white halo hair encircle Trant with arms outstretched and start singingReading The Cicerones we can ask What is the ultimate fate of our English tourist During his tour one of the boys points out a diptych depicting the blessed on one side and the lost on the other He also informs Trant he ll be there soon Like the many other scintillating aspects of this intricate gripping yarn Robert Aickman leaves the answer to the imagination of each readerCoda Robert Aickman wrote the following regarding this story The cathedral in The Cicerones was at Antwerp but the events described in the story happened to me so precisely almost that I moved the whole thing including all the detail to the cathedral at Ghent I fear therefore that the student has to visit both cathedrals not that he will regret doing so or she Which leads one to wonder where and how the author s almost came into play RAVISSANTEA tale that can be interpreted as the madness of art or the art of madness or both A story within a story that s knotty and tricky reuiring than an initial read to be fully appreciated So as not to divulge the tantalizing arc of plot I ll simply highlight four pieces contained within this literary chiller Artist A British narrator relates his acuaintance with an unnamed British painter whose large canvases remind him of the late Charles Sims specifically of such paintings as Am I Not The Light in the Abyss As the frail slim painter reflects on his own work My pictures are visionary and symbolical and from first to last have seemed to be painted by someone other than myself Am I Not the Light in the Abyss by Charles SimsAn Artist s Influences The slim artist discloses his relationship to art and artists how art in general leaves him cold especially when put on display for crowds rather art should always belong to individuals Likewise most artworks by the great masters have little effect on him On the other hand in the painters who do affect me I become almost completely absorbed in their lives and thoughts to the extent that I can find out about these things or divine them as well as in their works He goes on to specify the half dozen or so artists with whom he feels great affinity above all the Belgian artist James Ensor By my eye the below Ensor painting captures much of the ghastliness the British artist encounters in this Aickman tale The Intrigue by James Ensor Madame A An old widow of one of the artists the British painter feels affinity She has been living in isolation in her house in Brussels for years and is than happy to welcome the young artist into her home to share her memory and the paintings hanging in her many rooms Recall my mention of madness above Her hairy legs were bare also and her dull red dress was cut startlingly low for a woman of her years making her creased bosom all too visible The we learn of Madame A and her odd view of life and art the we are drawn into the ghastly and grotesue Creatures Animals often appear in here said Madame A huskily Dogs cats toads monkeys What is a Robert Aickman story without a
