Ebon Throne
Overture to Dark Art of an Aryan Mystic
‘Ebon Throne’
The theme of Dark Art was Howard’s treatment of race in fiction. I could think of no better image from his writing than this passage. The imagery is positively daemonic, with the perspective character shrinking in the reader’s mind’s eye as he considers the feminine present looming over him.
“Before a great dark woman’s ebon throne.
How dark, inhuman, strange, her deep eyes shone!”
-Robert E. Howard, from an untitled fragment
