The city of dreadful night is a poem of pessimism, which, neither widely read nor popular, has, however, a twofold value as a document of humanity and as an extraordinarily thorough and vivid representation of a sole, overmastering mood undesirable but undeniable. Written by the Scottish poet, James Thomson, himself a lifelong melancholic. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
