H.P. Lovecraft: consummate prose stylist (1984)

A very interesting article from the out-of-print "Lovecraft studies" issue 9, published in 1984.

I concur with the critic's view. Lovecraft's verbiage was not so byzantine as C.A. Smith's, nor could it reach Smith's heights of "verbal black magic"- nonetheless, he employed it on purpose and shouldn't be accused of excessive use of adjectives.
