Major work by Arthur Machen

If you could sum up The Hill of Dreams in three words, what would they be?

Dreamy, philosophical, poetic journey of a young writer in 1890's London. Machen's wonderful use of language as sensual, evocative experience is rewarding. Now I want to read other Machen writings. The narrator was excellent, and I hope that we will see other Machen audiobooks in the future.
