Nyctophobia Series — H.P. Lovecraft

The best known author of the cosmic horror story and the origin of the Cthulhu Mythos, Howard Phillips Lovecraft (1890-1937) is considered perhaps the greatest of all horror fiction writers… An antiquarian eremite, he was more fond of books than of people, very much like most of his protagonists. There is, however, no official record of Lovecraft ever encountering anything corporeally eldritch, as much as some fans wish it were all true. To this day you can find at least a half dozen different fabrications of Lovecraft’s wholly fictional Necronomicon. He credited his night terrors with providing most of his inspiration; both night terrors and the filmy, oily membrane between waking and sleep factor heavily in his various works.

LITERATURE MEME | 2 movements - (2) dark romanticism

Dark Romanticism, also called American Romanticism, is a subgenre of literature that arose in reaction to Transcendentalism. Dark Romanticism involves sin, self-destruction, and often supernatural forces.

G.R. Thompson describes the movement as follows:

"Fallen man’s inability fully to comprehend haunting reminders of another, supernatural realm that yet seemed not to exist, the constant perplexity of inexplicable and vastly metaphysical phenomena, a propensity for seemingly perverse or evil moral choices that had no firm or fixed measure or rule, and a sense of nameless guilt combined with a suspicion the external world was a delusive projection of the mind—these were major elements in the vision of man the Dark Romantics opposed to the mainstream of Romantic thought."

Notable writers include Edgar Allan Poe, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Herman Melville.
