  • ultima thule

    December 3, 2007

  •      By a route obscure and lonely,

         Haunted by ill angels only,

         Where an Eidolon, named Night,

         On a black throne reigns upright,

         I have reached these lands but newly

         From an ultimate dim Thule

    From a wild weird clime, that lieth, sublime,

             Out of Space — out of Time.

    – Edgar Allen Poe, "Dream-Land" (1844)

    The word is pronounced as two syllables, rhyming, as in Poe's poem, with "newly".
