A Dreamer and a Visionary: H P Lovecraft in His Time

S. T. Joshi


H. P. Lovecraft has come to be recognised as the leading author of supernatural fiction in the twentieth century. But how did a man who died in poverty, with no book of his stories published in his lifetime, become such an icon in horror literature? This book traces in detail the course of Lovecraft's life and shows how Lovecraft was engaged in the political, economic, social, and intellectual currents of his time.

Keywords: supernatural fiction, horror literature, politics, economics, social events, intellectual
