Joshi é 8 Free read I am Providence the life and times of HP Lovecraft restores every word of Joshi's original manuscript The text has be My favorite work of nonfiction and biography is Peter the Great His Life and World by Robert K Massie a biography of almost 900 pages which I read in 2007 Considering how much nonfiction I read being the unuestioned favorite is a very very lofty perch This is now my second favorite biography Almost right up there with that oneSo let us begin Anyone interested in not just reading Lovecraft as fiction but also as a writer with something to say has no doubt heard of ST Joshi Not only the greatest and most comprehensive of Lovecraft scholars alive but of them all period Joshi lets Lovecraft tell his own story through many letters as well as letting others who have met him chime in through their impressions of the man Naturally as a literary critic he also ads his own exceptionally erudite commentary to also bring a contemporary perceptive on these matters All of it is handled excellentlyWe are taken on a linear tour of HPL s life with numerous asides about other developments overlapping chapters and thus get to see the development of a remarkable individual ridden with high and low points which alike come together to make the man and many of his influences I need not state the life of the man here Joshi s focus on his thought evolutions in his politics philosophy featuring just as much as literary developments really help to show where the core perspectives that make HPL so uniue really came from His condemnable racism and uestionable early reactionary nature is neither brushed over nor excused but neither is it taken out of proportion to his many virtues as a man Most pertinent of which is just what a good and honorable friend he was to those he both new in person and those he only knew from correspondence Works of charity tips and advice and a lively social circle in which he eventually became the star Coupled with his wide travels for the time and his income and vigorous efforts to go out of his way to relate them to others the man must have been one one of the best people anyone could have had as friends and clearly is a far cry from the obtuse recluse narrative which seems to dominate thinking about himIf I had any uibbles with this work the only one I can think of is very minor and that is the dismissive way Joshi treats Howard Granted I agree that a significant chunk perhaps even almost half of what Robert E Howard wrote was hack work its still fun though but what he really invested in a few independent stories Most of Conan all of Kull etc I think deserves serious literary credit Of course its not a book about Howard so that hardly matters I generally agreed with Joshi on Clark Ashton Smith being a good poet a great fantasist Zothiue among the best but that the Averoign stories are banal and forgettable I also learned about a few authors from that period I need to check out so that is always goodI specifically liked Joshi s mentioning Laird Barron and Thomas Ligotti who recently I have become uite into and agree wholeheartedly that they are amongst the contemporary vanguard of the weird tale I would also include John Langan and Nathan Ballingrud in that list as well I clearly have to check out Pugmire and will be sure to do so soonSo in all a fantastic work of both scholarship and erudition A feat I can be uite sympathetic to having just completed a doctoral thesis myself but also of heart soul and passion This book is a testament to both the man it is about and the man who wrote it The Secret Teachings of Chinese Energetic Medicine Volume 2 Energetic Alchemy Dao Yin Therapy Healing i Deviations and Spirit Pathology 2014 Revised Edition of HP
