Randolph Carter is a recurring fictional character in H. Lovecraft ‘s fiction and is, presumably, an alter ego of Lovecraft himself. The character first appears in ” The Statement of Randolph Carter “, a short story Lovecraft wrote in based on one of his dreams.
An American magazine called The Ve published the story eeclaracion May Carter shares many of Lovecraft’s personal traits: He is an uncelebrated author, whose writings are seldom noticed.
A melancholy figure, Carter is a quiet contemplative dreamer with a sensitive disposition, prone to fainting during times of emotional stress. But he can also be courageous, with enough strength of mind and decaracion to face and foil the horrific creatures of the Dreamlandsas described in the stories of the Dream Cycle.
In Lovecraft’s writings, Carter appears or is mentioned in the following tales, listed in the fictional chronology. Randolph Carter is an antiquarian and one-time student of the fictional Miskatonic University. Based on clues from various stories, he was probably born around and grew up in and around Boston.
At the age of nine, he underwent a mysterious experience cartter his great-uncle Christopher’s farm and thereafter exhibited a gift of prophecy. Sir Randolph had then emigrated to America and his son Edmund Carter later had to flee the Salem witch-trials. Carter also had an ancestor involved in one of the Crusadeswho was captured by the Muslims and learned “wild secrets” from them.
The Statement of Randolph Carter by H.P. Lovecraft
Carter served in the French Foreign Legion during the First World War, ddeclaracion was badly wounded in fighting near Belloy-en-Santerre inpresumably during the Battle of the Somme in which the Legion participated. Poet Alan Seeger perished there in the Foreign Legion on the first day of the Somme, and Lovecraft may well have had Seeger in mind; Lovecraft penned a poem to Seeger’s memory in Carter and his friend Harley Warren investigate a mysterious crypt in an ancient abandoned cemetery.
Warren believes the crypt may contain evidence that could confirm some of his speculations details of these speculations are never revealed, but it is said that Warren recently read a mysterious book written in an unknown language about incorruptibility of the dead.
Warren insists that Carter remain at declarafion surface. He descends the steps alone, but remains in communication with Carter via a portable telephone set. Shortly thereafter he tells Carter that he has discovered a monstrous unbelievable secret and pleads with his companion to replace the stone and run for his life.
When Carter asks rqndolph he has found, his queries are initially met with silence and then by the voice of an unknown entity who informs him that Warren lovrcraft dead. The story is almost verbatim from one of Lovecraft’s nightmares, with but minor changes like the name “Lovecraft” to “Warren”. The tale is set in a seventeenth-century cemetery as evening falls.
Raandolph, Manton is skeptical and ridicules Carter for thinking that such a being may be possible. As darkness encroaches — and as Carter’s descriptions become more detailed and supported by facts declaracon his flippant dismissal gradually gives way to fear. The two are attacked by the monster but survive the experience. There is some question as to whether “The Unnamable’s” protagonist is in fact Lovecraf Carter; he is named only as “Carter” and described as an author of weird fiction.
The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath —one of Lovecraft’s longest tales—follows Carter for several months searching for the lost city of his dreams.
The story reveals Carter’s familiarity with much of Lovecraft’s fictional universe.
Carter is also shown to possess considerable knowledge of the politics and geography of the dream world and has allies there. After an elaborate odyssey, Carter awakes in his Boston apartment, with seclaracion a fleeting impression of the dream world he left behind, though he now knows what the lost city actually is.
Wonder is gone and he has forgotten the fact that life is nothing more than a set of mental images, where there is no fundamental distinction between dreams and reality and no declaraciom to value one above the other. In an attempt to recover his lost innocence, Carter returns to his childhood home and finds a mysterious silver key, which allows him to enter rxndolph cave and magically emerge again in the year as a child, full of wonder, dreams, and happiness.
He remains in this condition untilwhen he again disappears, presumably having found a way to transcend space and time and travel in other dimensions. Randoplh Pricedetails Carter’s povecraft in another dimension where he encounters a more primordial version of himself implied to be Yog-Sothoth who explains that Carter—and indeed all beings—are lovecrafg nothing more than manifestations of a greater being. Carter’s mind ends up trapped in the body of an alien, another facet of the higher being.
The investigation into Carter’s disappearance takes place four years later, in He visits a museum exhibiting an ancient mummy from a long-forgotten civilization and recognizes some of the writing on the scroll that accompanies it.
This list is based in the An H. Joshi says it would also explain why he was called a “bag of nerves” in that story, since it took place after his World War I service in which he was nearly killed and might still have post-traumatic stress disorder. Lovecraft’s character may have been based on a real-life Randolph Carter, who was a Scholar at Christ’s Collegein the University of Lovecarftfrom Carter’s whereabouts after Cambridge are unclear, but, like his fictional namesake, he may ce used the French Foreign Legion as a route into exploring the North African deserts.
