    1 thought on “Lovecraft”

    1. When you pick up a book by a college professor about H.P. Lovecraft, you might expect an analysis of his stories, his cross-referencing of other authors' works, his philosophical views, not to mention some of his ookier ideas on race.Donald Burleson does none of this. Instead, he spends 160 pages babbling non-sense like an undergrad trying to finish a 1000 word paper on a book he didn't read. A typical example:"The striking thing, immediately, about the title 'The Statement of Randolph Carter' i [...]

    2. Decostruire Lovecraft con qualche virtuosismo di troppo. In ogni caso decisamente stimolante.
