    One thought on “Dissecting Cthulhu: Essays on the Cthulhu Mythos

    1. Henrik on said:

      A fine collection of scholarship. Some of it somewhat outdated, though, since most of the material is lifted from 1980s & 1990s' LOVECRAFT STUDIES and CRYPT OF CTHULHU. So if you already have those journals this isn't a must.Still highly recommended.

    2. Kierah on said:

      If you're familiar with any of S.T. Joshi's other scholarship on Lovecraft, then you'll know what to expect: lots of praise of Lovecraft's genius and a huge blind spot—universally, across ALL the selected essays!—where his racism, xenophobia, and misogyny are concerned. A good first step into Lovecraft scholarship, since it includes seminal essays on the debunking of the Derleth mythos, but it's just that—a first step.

      I’m friends with the owners of Miskatonic Press (MRP), who thoughtfully provided me copies of all their books. Dissecting Cthulhu, edited by S.T. Joshi, is a departure for MRP, collecting a series of critical essays about H.P. Lovecraft, August Derleth, and the nature of the Cthulhu Mythos.The first chapter, Some Overviews, might sounds like a broad topic but it’s actually a series of excoriating attacks on Derleth. It starts with Richard L. Tierney who argues that the phrase “Cthulhu Myth [...]

    4. Patrick.G.P on said:

      A great collection of essays and criticism about Lovecraft and the Cthulhu mythos from the late 1980s to the early 90s. From longer essays about the locations of Arkham, Innsmouth and Kingsport to the criticism of Derleth's interpretation of the Lovecraftian Mythos this volume was a great read. Highly recommended for those interested in the more scholarly approach to H.P.Lovecraft.

    5. Nicolas on said:

      Really good collection of essays mainly debunking Derleth misinterpretation of Lovecraft's work, and a good way to understand deeply most of Lovecraft creations and writings. Highly recommended, though there are a few dozen printing mistakes scattered in some articles, probably because unproofread OCR ("m" turned into "ni" "l" to "i" etc).

    6. Steve Wiggins on said:

      A must read for die-hard Lovecraft fans. These essays have all been previously published, but for those who don't haunt Lovecraft journals, this is a great primer. Further considerations at: Sects and Violence in the Ancient World.

    7. Jessie B. on said:

      An interesting collection of essays on the works of Lovecraft and the Cthulhu mythos.

    8. Reynardine on said:

      Interest collection of essays regarding Lovecraft's works, many of them drawn from journals of the 70's and 80's.
