so I've been reading a collection of lovecraft's work, because I'm really interested in invented myth cycles, and he is so long winded, it's just GET TO THE POINT ALREADY!, i wouldn't mind if it was scary but its not, it's at best mildly disturbing. And so much of it is just absurd. like often a character will be banging on about how he knows some terrible secret which he hope nobody else finds out, but instead of burning the proof he hides it or writes a long treatise on what happened. He is so, so conservative, horribly classist and racist and women don't even exist in his writing except as shadows, puppets. Also he is really really anti science, anti finding out how the world works
