And knew it stood for a primal evil too terrible for description. (MM 272–73) right here we're brought to the connection among the ultimate god Azathoth and the messenger Nyarlathotep. so as to enterprise into what Lovecraft calls “ultimate chaos,” Gilman needs to signal Azathoth’s ebook, no longer coincidentally provided on the earth to Gilman by means of Nyarlathotep, as Azathoth is inaccessible to him in his nation of “ultimate chaos. ” Later within the tale, Lovecraft will get extra particular in his description of Nyarlathotep via labeling him a “deputy or messenger of hidden and bad powers—the ‘black guy’ of the witch-cult, and the ‘Nyarlathotep’ of the Necronomicon” (MM 286).
