WHAT are those of the known, but to ascend and enter the Unknown?
And what are those of life, but for Death?
This is a short, but rather deep poem...I think I understand it, but I'm not certain I want to 'enter to the unknown'....muahaha...
the only things people fear are the unknown and death, but as whitman says life is greater than both of the two fears, so live on
I think this poem is talking about people dying and going into the world of the 'unknown' and those from life are ascending into death. it is like a 'portal' into that world! hints the name...lol
This poem has not been translated into any other language yet.I would like to translate this poem
“The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown”- H.P. Lovecraft
