But though its lure alone makes life worth living, none gains or guesses what it hints at giving. I accidentally chanced upon Lovecraft while browsing shelves at my local city library during my high school days. From the first story, Lovecraft had mesmerized me with his incredible use of words, and I admit, with his use of ancient and obsolete words. Eventually I got to his poems, of which the epic lay "Fungi from Yuggoth" is one of his most famous efforts.

When i first read this Horatian, I felt only the supernaturally positive emotions of amazement, anxiety, wonder, fear, mystery, and eeriness.
Now years distant from high school, I recently took up again my favorite copy of this short lay. I have read many words and seen terrible things both scary and ghastly. I respect the poem, and greatly respect the author. However, the chill is lifted, the streets are not so scary, they cold gulfs and mystic shrines and unspeakable forms are curiosities now, co-regions and co-inhabitants of a shared cosmos, not aliens to cower to.
I have read recently that Yuggoth has companions five, or perhaps there are six compeer yuggothoids loosely sharing their wildly elliptical orbits around the small dim star at the center of their system. Jul 01, Carlos rated it liked it Shelves: This little volume edited by August Derleth brings together a sampling of H. While I've often heard the opinion that Lovecraft's poetry is quite poor, reading this gave me the impression that's not an entirely fair. If there's one weakness to HPL's poetry, it's his archaism.
This is especially true of the earlier works, where Lovecraft indulges his most Edwardian inclinations. The later poetry, beginning with The Ancient Track, while still somewhat old fashioned in This little volume edited by August Derleth brings together a sampling of H. The later poetry, beginning with The Ancient Track, while still somewhat old fashioned in style captures a pleasant weird vibe.
Especially worthwhile is "The Fungi From Yuggoth," which features thirty-six different sonnets. Some are little scary stories in their own right, while others aim more for the sense of the numinous that often accompanies the horrible in HPL's fiction. While Lovecraft is arguably not the best weird poet of his era--that title would probably go to Clark Ashton Smith--I would argue he's worth reading for anyone in seeing this curious overlap betwixt the poetic and the uncanny.
I'm not a big fan of rhyming poetry the sonnets have a nice flow to them though. Being a fan of prose makes it hard to enjoy rhyming poetry I'm sure some people will agree with me. Of 36 poems I only found four that I actually could put a like on. Sep 27, Prospero rated it liked it. Lovecraft's poetic ravings achieve such levels of cosmic badness that they're almost good. I was entertained for mostly the wrong reasons.

I actually read this small collection of poems as an e-book available from Amazon not this print version. However, I didn't see the ebook listed, so I chose this -- since this is the closest thing to the version I read. With that out of the way I came away from this book convinced that HPL may have been a better poet than a prose writer.
Without the ideas that evolved from his plots, the sort of imagery spotlighted in this collection wouldn't exist. Still, it seems that the ri I actually read this small collection of poems as an e-book available from Amazon not this print version.
Still, it seems that the rigid form of the sonnet does something to effectively harness the power of HPL's prose. It reigns in some of the purple-ness. It prevents him from embarking on misadventures in dialogue.
It provides a distilled version of HPL I think. A few of the poems are wistful, even poignant I'm as much a fan of contemplating the cold indifference of the cosmos as anyone else, but I found it a nice change of pace to read a poem like "Alienation" and find myself seized by a sense that HPL was likely talking very much about himself and the alienation he and all "dreamers", creative types, and SF folks in general experience from our families and friends. Not every poem works for me , but the vast majority do.
I'm very glad I read this. Wish I'd read it sooner. Lovecraft might not have been technically the greatest of poets — this sequence of 36 sonnets includes such clumsiness as rhyming 'evil' with 'devil' — but his poetry hums with a sense of cosmic wonder, a simultaneous fear and marvel in the alien, the unknowable.
Much has been written about Lovecraft's evocation of horror, but less about the sense of awe in his work, the reverence in the presence of the godlike, totally inhuman entities he writes about. The line between fear and wonder in t H. The line between fear and wonder in these poems is membranously thin. Lovecraft dreams of celestial cities whose streets, he notes with evident approval, "human tread has never soiled", then a dead face that "called me by my name".
A sense of identification with the alien is palpable in these poems, which is interesting considering Lovecraft was a xenophobe in life. Objects around float nebulous and dim - False, phantom trifles of some vaster plan. His folk and friends are now an alien throng To which he struggles vainly to belong. I must admit that many of the sonnets had wonderful moments language-wise, but overall I was disappointed in spite of my low expectations.
What at first seemed to be a narrative series of sonnets quickly broke of into unconnected poems that were "narrative" without having any narration for the most part. Some are incohe I must admit that many of the sonnets had wonderful moments language-wise, but overall I was disappointed in spite of my low expectations.
Some are incoherent and make little sense, however not in a way that would imply a fictitious author's madness but in a way that hints more towards sloppy writing. It is a pity, since the poetic potential is evident, even though at times the flow could have been significantly better, that wonderful phrasings are wasted in an attempt to make the sonnet something which it is not, namely a good device for narrative. And it is especially bothersome that almost none of the scraps of narrative provided is actually good.

Most critics don't touch on how his writing can sometimes make one feel lost and confused in a foreign alien dark abyss to the point of madness. This is where the fear is incited in me from his writing. He has an artful way of creating an atmosphere of the horrific and the mysterious unknown. In this book, he attempts to replicate this with Gotta love the craft that is HP Lovecraft! In this book, he attempts to replicate this with his poems.
While he may not be the most he greatest of poets from a technical aspect, he does achieve his real goal, his true passion of horror.
