I’ve been a fan of Lovecraft’s work for as long as I can remember. Words like “cyclopean” and “ineffable” entered my vocabulary thanks to the man.

I’ve read most of Lovecraft’s works but one work that has caught my attention recently is his sonnet-cycle “The Fungi From Yuggoth”. I think “Yuggoth” is an interesting text that deserves more attention (it reads almost as a lyrical summary of his opus). The fact that Lovecraft even penned a sonnet-cycle (or sequence, you pedants) is fascinating. Why did he choose to write in this antiquated poetic form? But from his efforts, one thing is clear. The man was acquainted with the formal aspects of the sonnet form.
