FROM H. P. Lovecraft
TO Zealia Brown Reed


No charge for analysis (which closely parallels "Under Cover) and other notes on writing, focusing particularly on the need for a story to deal with more than its characters (recommended reading including A Rebours by Joris-Karl Huysmans, the poetry of Baudelaire, William Butler Yeats, Synge, Arthur Machen's The Hill of Dreams, Dostoevsky's Crime & Punishment, Tolstoy, Edgar Allan Poe, Algernon Blackwood's Incredible Adventures, Walter de la Mare, and Gustave Flaubert's Salammbo); on "Pickman's Model" and Lovecraft's style in his own fiction versus his revisions (mentioning Donald Wandrei's "Red Brain" in Weird Tales and his article "Supernatural Horror in Literature" running in W. Paul Cook's The Recluse).
