Bierce’s narrator concludes that the plain where he wanders is some distance “from the ruins of the famous and ancient city of Carcosa,” which too finds its rhyme in and the cosmic-horror tradition, of which Bierce’s story is an early example, and rightly so.
But what’s largely been missed is that the cosmic-horror genre—rooted, as it is, in humankind’s subprime position in the pecking order of the universe—is deeply entwined with the character of Louisiana’s physical and cultural landscape. Lovecraft’s most beloved and anthologized stories, in which policemen descend on a swamp south of New Orleans.
Louisiana Voodoo (otherwise known as “Hoodoo”), which draws upon African and European folk traditions alike, derives much of its occult resonance from such practices as vengeance by proxy (voodoo dolls), suspended animation (zombification), and (talismans, not unlike the knocked-together fetish sculptures that Hart and Cohle discover at the scene of Dora Lange’s murder).
In the 1830s, Brown entered a brothel owned by Adeline Miller, a well-known New York madam.

Priemyselná revolúcia je predchodcom premeny spoločenských vzťahov a nie jej následkom.“On every side of me,” he says, “stretched a bleak and desolate expanse of plain, covered with a tall overgrowth of sere grass, which rustled and whistled in the autumn wind …A few blasted trees here and there appeared as leaders in this malevolent conspiracy of silent expectation.” That image of scattered trees dotting an “expanse of plain” has a visual rhyme in an early scene in True Detective, set in the field outside Erath, La., where detectives Marty Hart (Woody Harrelson) and Rust Cohle (Matthew Mc Conaughey) discover Dora Lange’s body.
