Published in 2004 in paperback, 248pp, ISBN 0972164499, this book is entitled 'Collected Essays Volume 2: Literary Criticism', and is edited by S. T. Joshi. H. P. Lovecraft's writings in the realm of literary criticism are unfailingly acute and cover a surprisingly wide range. Besides his authoritative early essay on "The Literature of Rome" (1918), other works condemn free verse and simple spelling, and devote attention to neglected poets. Discovering weird fiction as his chosen field, he wrote essays on "Lord Dunsany and His Work" (1922), and essays on Frank Belknap Long, etc. Late in Life, Lovecraft codified his grasp of weird literature writing such pieces as "Notes on Writing Weird Fiction" (1933) and "Some Notes on Interplanetary Fiction" (1934).
