Lovecraft Rescued From Pulp Graveyard

  • Sep 8, 1997
Rating:
+3
This trade paperback attempts to kindle renewed interest in H.P. Lovecraft's work by treating it with the scholarly attention paid by academics to more literary writers. S.T. Joshi makes the case that Lovecraft was more a writer in the tradition of Poe than pulp writers like Robert E. Howard, and he manages to clear away a lot of the brush that has crept over the man. That Lovecraft was an unusual, even eccentric figure is not disputed, but he was very intelligent, read widely in a number of scientific fields, and was serious about his fiction. Joshi makes a compelling case that Lovecraft's work should be separated from the penny-a-word pulp writers that he's lumped with today.
