In the Great God's Hair

(1904)
A novel by

 
 
This tale might well stand as a Borgean conceit: the author claims to have translated it from a Sanskrit manuscript, and he even includes scholarly footnotes that lend a degree of credence to the claim. However that may be, it is a beautifully told tale with deep layers of meaning.

"Far away, in the quarter of the north, there stands a mighty mountain: of supereminence so transcendent, that even the Mother of the World was willing to call him father: of hue so pure, that even the snowy swans haunting the lake of Manasa blush in his presence as if ashamed of their own inferiority: of size so gigantic, that the rising and the setting sun throws his shadow on the sky, and the seven Rishis in their daily revolution turn their eyes upwards to his peak, glowing like a tongue of flame at sunset or at dawn. . . . "
