  • Poetry – Lovecraft, like Poe, at one time considered himself primarily a poet.
  • Letters – Lovecraft was a voluminous letter-writer, and it is estimated that he wrote over 100,000 letters in his lifetime.
  • Amateur Journalism – Lovecraft’s talents blossomed under the influence of amateur journalism.
  • Literary Criticism – Lovecraft not only reviewed the works of others, he wrote numerous pieces on his philosophy of literature.
  • Science – Science fascinated Lovecraft from an early age, and he had especially strong interests in astronomy and chemistry.
  • Travel – Although some think of Lovecraft as a reclusive stay-at-home, he actually traveled quite extensively along the Atlantic seaboard.
  • Philosophy – Besides his literary philosophy, Lovecraft held strong views on the nature of the universe, which is clear throughout many of his tales.
  • Autobiographical – Lovecraft wrote several brief autobiographical sketches for his correspondents.
