EDGAR ALLAN POE PRESENTS: Leonid Andreyev: Lazarus

"One of the seven most powerful writers of all time." —Robert E. Howard, author of Conan the Barbarian

"Andreyev's Lazarus and Ellison's I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream are among best of the best short stories ever written." —Przemyslaw Musialowski, Polish translator of Leonid Andreyev's works

Andreyev, because of the cumulative portrayals of the weird and the horrible, has often been called the Russian Edgar Allan Poe.

Death with Poe is mysteriously beautiful, with Andreyev it is a blighting, baneful curse; but the horror of life and of death makes these two great artists kin.

But this strange being knew death, and that knowledge of his was felt to be mysterious and cursed. "He will kill our great, divine Augustus," men cried with horror, and they hurled curses after him. Slowly and stolidly he passed them by, penetrating ever deeper into the palace.

Cæsar knew already who Lazarus was, and was prepared to meet him. He was a courageous man; he felt his power was invincible, and in the fateful encounter with the man "wonderfully raised from the dead" he refused to lean on other men's weak help. Man to man, face to face, he met Lazarus.
