Read full description of the books The Beast in the Cave:I've seen many mixed reviews for this story. However, I have to defend it. Its Lovecraft's first published (as far as I know) and its one of his scariest. But unlike a horror movie, or even some of the newer horror sex/gore fests stories today, you have to work for this to get the most out of it. You need to read it with a crystal clear, flexible imagination, and read it alone, at night in a dim room with a single light. If you really get in the shoes of the character, and see everything as he sees it, and you can pull up horrific imagery in you mind at a moment's notice, this is one of Lovecraft's most terrifying stories. Most people aren't up for the challenge, however.
Read information about the authorHoward Phillips Lovecraft, of Providence, Rhode Island, was an American author of horror, fantasy and science fiction.
Lovecraft's major inspiration and invention was cosmic horror: life is incomprehensible to human minds and the universe is fundamentally alien. Those who genuinely reason, like his protagonists, gamble with sanity. Lovecraft has developed a cult following for his Cthulhu Mythos, a series of loosely interconnected fictions featuring a pantheon of human-nullifying entities, as well as the Necronomicon, a fictional grimoire of magical rites and forbidden lore. His works were deeply pessimistic and cynical, challenging the values of the Enlightenment, Romanticism and Christianity. Lovecraft's protagonists usually achieve the mirror-opposite of traditional gnosis and mysticism by momentarily glimpsing the horror of ultimate reality.
Although Lovecraft's readership was limited during his life, his reputation has grown over the decades. He is now commonly regarded as one of the most influential horror writers of the 20th Century, exerting widespread and indirect influence, and frequently compared to Edgar Allan Poe.
