Shadow of Nightmare

Read "Shadow of Nightmare" at The Eldritch Dark:

This sonnet by Clark Ashton Smith (CAS) is a vigorous description of a bad dream, but doesn't strike me as being much more than that.  Some of the imagery reminds me of early Hollywood horror films, although of course if was written well before Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff made their names.  All in all, it's not much of a standout in the poetic corpus of CAS.
