The Complete Works of H. P. Lovecraft - H. P.(Howard Phillips)  Lovecraft

Reading "The Street" was fascinating. Given how all of my previous Lovecraft reading was in his stories in the Cthulhu mythos, it proved quite a revelation. With it's WASP anxiety about a changing America and the forces transforming it, it was both quite different from what I had read before and yet at the same time very much in keeping with the overall tenor of his writings.
