the gloaming

Started Wilkie Collins’s Victorian sensation novel The Woman in White yesterday, an early example of Gothic literature blended with psychology and insanity (though E. A. Poe still reigns in that writing).  As the lead characters investigate some mysterious circumstances, they meet a young boy who claims to have seen a ghost of the eponymous woman in the town’s graveyard… at “the gloaming” (that is: twilight or dusk).  The line just sent an unnerving note… “gloaming” just sounds spooky.  Reminded me of the Radiohead song that captures that feel and explores it some.  They did a kickass version of it on the “Live from the Basement” videos, give it a listen.
