HP Lovecraft and James Joyce

I sense that HPL’s greatest fear is himself and his ability to write of distasteful things, not fear of the things themselves. Hence the ‘forgotten’ dreams, the-things-that-must-not-be-described or even mentioned, while he is captive to the dream, not Carter’s dream but the dream of writing about it.

This is an Extract from my real-time review of 'The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath' HERE
