I recently read the complete works of HP Lovecraft and wanted to delve a little deeper. My local college library had a copy of 'H.P. Lovecraft, a critical study' and it has been a fascinating read.
The author, Burleson, is clearly a huge fan of Lovecraft and in the book details every major story of Lovecraft in huge detail. One favorite passage of mine is the interpretation of the story 'The Outsider' as a Jungian Archetype.
The writing is easy to read, the analysis isn't too dense... but then if you can plow through Lovecraft most things would be an easy read.
I am enjoying this book so much I am thinking about contacting the author to put out an ebook copy.
