Although he’s best known for his works of weird fiction, H.P. Lovecraft for most of his life considered himself primarily a poet. This cycle of 36 classic-form sonnets, infused with his trademark cosmic dread, represents the pinnacle of Lovecraft’s career as a poet, and it’s his most well-known and thoroughly-studied body of poetry.
This volume presents Fungi from Yuggoth in the context of Lovecraft’s literary life, with examples of his other poetry. In it, you will discover — or rediscover — the dark humor, bold imagination, and sparkling wit that is Howard Phillips Lovecraft’s enduring gift to the world.
