Lovecraft Scholarship

H.P. Lovecraft: The Decline of the West by S.T. Joshi
Starmont House, 1990. ISBN 1557422087. Beige pictorial wrappers.
Starmont Studies in Literary Criticism no. 37
The seller states: A rare first edition of this seminal Joshi work. Please note this is the ORIGINAL hardcover print from Starmont press (very rare), NOT the Wildside Press reprint. Joshi expands on a fascinating chapter from his Weird Tales book and delves into the philosophy of Lovecraft - first analyzing themes in Lovecraft's voluminous letters, then examining those same trends as they emerge in his fiction. A very different approach to Lovecraft than what had been done before in the field of Lovecraft studies.
