Supernatural Horror in Literature by H. P. Lovecraft
Great modern American supernaturalist brilliantly surveys history of genre to 1930s, summarizing, evaluating scores of books, including works by Poe, Bierce, M.R. James, Monk Lewis, many others. Praised by critics as diverse as Edmund Wilson and Vincent Starrett.
Lovecraft examines the beginnings of weird fiction in the gothic novel (relying greatly on Edith Birkheads 1921 survey The Tale of Terror) and traces its development through such writers as Ambrose Bierce, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Edgar Allan Poe (who merits his own chapter). Lovecraft names as the four modern masters of horror: Algernon Blackwood, Lord Dunsany, M. R. James, and Arthur Machen.
