A Dreamer and a Visionary

This chapter examines Lovecraft's life and work between 1914 and 1917. Lovecraft entered the world of amateur journalism in April 1914. As he plunged into amateur activity, contributing essays and poems (later stories) to amateur journals, becoming involved in heated controversies, and in general taking stock of the little world he had stumbled upon, he gradually developed the belief that amateur journalism was an ideal vehicle for achieving two important goals: first, abstract self-expression without thought of remuneration; and second, education, especially for those who had not had the benefit of formal schooling.

Keywords:   amateur journalism, Amateur Press Associations, abstract self-expression, education
