Have You Seen The Yellow Sign?
Der Wanderer durch den See (AR)
Der Wanderer durch den See in English and German by A. R., 1923, Erebus Press, London. A small book, 6 inches by 4 inches, ninety-seven numbered pages, bound in all-white cloth, blank cover and spine. The text is split into two halves, headed First Act and Second Act, and describes the dreams of a man. It is written in the form of a case history, but probably can be read as autobiographical despite the absence of personal pronouns. There is no mention of studying a subject or of interviews with him. The text does not seem to be organized for dramatic effect or to be a resource, nor is it fiction, poetry, or science.
Some would be disconcerted by the structure of this treatise, but it is for us to walk on the Earth in Carcosa: that is the Third Act. That passage may or may not be written.
Hilf mir, Kaiwan. Ich, ein Träumer, eine Vision von roten Aldebaran und schwarz Hali suchen. Ich mache das Zeichen.
And seeking the vision, he makes the Yellow Sign in front of him with his fist such as I, standing before him, could read it plain enough to Bespeak the End of the Day.
