Lovecraft, H.P.: Supernatural Horror in Literature. v1, 5 Jan 2008

"Supernatural Horror in Literature" is a non-fiction survey of the field of horror fiction by the famed horror writer H. P. Lovecraft, written between November 1925 and May 1927, and revised in 1933-1934. It was first published in 1927 in the one-shot magazine The Recluse.

Lovecraft examines the roots of weird fiction in the gothic novel (relying heavily on Edith Birkhead's 1921 survey The Tale of Terror), and traces its development through such writers as Nathaniel Hawthorne, Edgar Allan Poe (who merits his own chapter), and Ambrose Bierce. Lovecraft names as the four "modern masters" of horror Arthur Machen, Lord Dunsany, Algernon Blackwood and M. R. James.

An H. P. Lovecraft Encyclopedia calls the work "HPL's most significant literary essay and one of the finest historical analyses of horror literature." Upon reading the essay, M. R. James proclaimed Lovecraft's style "most offensive."

Ive read it,but what the hell does James (who is he,again?) find offensive on personal literary critisism?Surely,you cant go around prasing the same old authors in the same old way.And what ,does he think a book about someone trying to create a socialist society (Horrid Mysteries) should be treated with the same respect as "Melmoth the wanderer"?.

Note,however,Horrid Mysteries was writen by Peter Will and not "Gross".
