Attic > Supernatural Horror in Literature

by H.P. Lovecraft

With incisive penetration and power, Lovecraft here formulates the aesthetics of supernatural horror, and summarizes in masterful fashion the range of its literary expression from primitive folklore to the tales of his own twentieth-century masters. Following a discussion of terror-literature in ancient, medieval and renaissance culter, he launches on a critical survey of the whole history of horror fiction from the Gothic school of the 18th century to the time of De la Mare and M.R. James.

By charting so completely the background for his own concepts of horror and literary techniques, Lovecraft throws light on his own fiction as well as on the horror-literature which has followed in his influential wake.
