A Lovecraft Thread. Beautiful. The reason Lovecraft was so hard for some to follow is due to his intricate use of Old English style prose and his
Romantic aura. The true Romantics have gone so we are not use to reading this style of writing. Ever read any Crowley? His fiction literature
demonstrates the Romantic style quite well. Though it is sometimes hard to follow it is extraordinarily beautiful. Lovecraft also stretched sentences
to an exasperating extent due to his extremely descriptive tone. During his life he was shunned a thousand fold for his obvious racialist mannerisms.
There was an extraordinary influx of foreigners into his native Rhode Island at the time so who can blame him? While diversity sets the scene for
individuality it can become a bit unnerving, especially during the times he lived in. Xenophobe, artist, literary master, dreamer, Misanthrope,
recluse. This smorgasbord of things served to make him the man he was and without even one of them he wouldn't have left such a darkly beautiful and
sometimes brooding mark on the annals of history. One of the greats! Though during his life he was rather locked into a debilitating obscurity he
emerged in the future to become one of the greatest minds of horror and lit the path of some Occult circles aflame. Thank you for creating a thread
dedicated to such an illustrious mind.
