I Am Providence Free read à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read & Download º PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Û S.T. Joshi S.T. Joshi Û 6 review 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 O Último Testamento (Maggie Costello, unuestioned favorite is a very very lofty perch This is now my second favorite biography Almost right One for My Baby up there with that oneSo let

I Am Providence Free read à PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Read & Download º PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Û S.T. Joshi S.T. Joshi Û 6 review In 1996 S T Joshi's HP Lovecraft a life was published The edition was abridged by than 150000 words This new version Good God I must stop reading biographies of writers However much I may love their fiction they have a terrible inclination to lead boring lives I suppose we must forgive them if they didn t spend so much time tucked up inside scribbling then they wouldn t leave us such interesting talesST Joshi deserves 5 stars for this enormous work which is stupendously detailed referenced footnoted and cross checked but I had to knock one off because it was a slogI highly recommend it to any Lovecraft scholar who wishes to know the minutiae of his life here we have out lined sketches of several generations of Lovecraft s ancestors than any sane person would wish to know about the state of early twentieth century amateur writing and the petty politics of their various magazines clubs and organisations exhaustive details of who wrote to Lovecraft and when and how he replied and who he visited and when and what they saw and which buildings he liked and which he didn t and whether they re still standing now and all sorts of details of that kindIn between all that is the story of his life of interest to gawkers who like to know the gossip about interesting people Born into a well to do family he had a wonderfully privileged youth despite which he was friendless and prey to terrible nightmares The family fortunes fell away so that by the time he flunked out of high school he and his mother were reduced to a dank funny smelling duplex where Lovecraft spent years catatonic with depression in a darkened room while his frighteningly over protective mother told people he was too ugly to leave the house He was the original NEETHonestly it was the best thing for him when she was confined to the insane asylum though he would be horrified to hear me say so he was a loving son and a true gentleman He got into amateur writing made some friends even started selling stories A brief stint as a married man in New York didn t turn out well He hated New York ugly and full of foreigners And despite his best attempts he was not cut out for matrimony being asexual and homosocial When Sonia told him she wanted a divorce he genuinely tried to persuade her that an epistolary marriage would work living apart but corresponding in a matrimonial fashion A proposition so daft that I can t help finding it endearing but then I m not his wifeBack to Providence where he lived with his aunt and spent most of his time writing a vast uantity of letters to friends colleagues acuaintances and anyone who loved his fiction and struck up a correspondence on that basis His vast network of penpals made him the heart of the weird fiction community Alas his financial situation did not improve probably due to the fact that he thought it vulgar to write for money and was unfailingly generous with his revision services He visited friends when money allowed which wasn t often and tried to save by eating as cheaply as possible Perhaps his early death was hastened by his habit of eating for less than 30 a day one doughnut for breakfast and beans on toast for dinnerST Joshi goes into some detail on his philosophy which underpinned his approach to life and his uniue fiction but luckily much of his correspondence has survived so I m looking forward to exploring that in his own words in the published collections of his letters O Último Testamento (Maggie Costello, up inside scribbling then they wouldn t leave One for My Baby us
