Talk:H. P. Lovecraft

From Conservapedia
Jump to: navigation, search

That was an outstanding analysis of Dream Quest of Unknown Kadath, and I'd never thought of it that way. I guess I should have, since Lovecraft was vehemently opposed to liberalism in all of its forms!!! Wikipedia will probably call him a fascist or something bc tehy are so biased! =)

Although Lovecraft was admirably suspicious of minorities, his stories did deal with the occult. I think this should be mentioned in this article. ATB 16:02, 11 March 2007 (EDT)

I agree with the point about occultism ("admirable suspicion of minorities," not so much). Granted I am new to the site, but there is a lot of criticism and editorial control by (presumably conservative) fans of fantasy that limits the ability of Christian posters to note incidences of paganism and occultism in the genre. I fully appreciate that such references to the occult elements might need to be segregated into their own sections of each article (as "Controversies" or somesuch), but the fact that you like H.P. Lovecraft, or The Lord of the Rings, or Dungeons and Dragons and think that their occult influences and content is swell, doesn't mean that those of us who disagree aren't raising valid points that Conservapedia should note. In addition to H.P. Lovecraft's support for an "old earth" in his stories he has multiple real "Old Gods" and occultist themes. --JesusSaves 23:17, 11 March 2007 (EDT)
