Lovecraft’s “Supernatural Horror in Literature”

I’m a pretty big Lovecraft fan. I’ve read all of his stories, but I must admit I’ve never read any of his NON-fiction. I recently stumbled across one of his essays entitled “Supernatural Horror in Literature”. It’s pretty lengthy and there are definite touches of the typical Lovecraft style. But here, those obscure words and long, winding sentences are put to work explaining the history and inner workings of the specific subgenre of horror that he helped create. It’s worth a look, even if you don’t actually read it all.
