poe was a very sick, disturbed man. although his stories didn't scare me...and i don't know who lovecraft is.

Lovecraft is amazing-when you turn 18, I will send you some of my books-

Neither really "scares" me, but I prefer Poe, his style is more intense and he had a wider range.

Neither are scary at all.

I agree with neither scaring me, I also agree with prefering Poe.

I prefer to read Lovecraft though and think he had a much larger influence on the horror genre.

I'd preffer Lovercraft :-]

I don't think I've read anything by Lovecraft, so I'll go with Poe.

Poe did write the better poetry though-

why?

I have loved Poe since I was very young. I re-read him every now and then.

Lovecraft has always bored me. I have tried to read him several times, but his descriptions are too drawn-out and long for me. I'm sure he's very good, but he's just not for me.

Pegasus-Do you like Stephen King?

Many of his novels give reference to (lovecraft)or include his writings...

Lovecraft for me, even though his racism kind of bothered me.

I've always been interested in reading Lovecraft. I have the opportunity now, since I have to read some sort of American writing for my class.

Are his stories horribly long? What's recommended?
