With these early amateur journals we are reminded once again that H.P. Lovecraft began as a poet and published countless poems in countless journals of the time; indeed it was always something of a feather in one's cap as an editor, to have a poetic contribution from Lovecraft as it practically guaranteed you at least a paragraph or two in the BUREAU OF CRITICS review of journals. For example, PINE CONES reviewed here gets a full-page and half-a-column from the previous page, as Lovecraft is the key reviewee - "Mr. Lovecraft's, Earth & Sky is in his familiar sonorous style. The conception is poetic and the execution is almost flawless. Yet a carping critic might find one or two things to pounce upon . . . is it exactly in keeping with modern conceptions of man as 'the noblest work' of creation to describe his years as "inglorious?" Paltry waifs we may be . . . but surely it is more inspirational to think of man as the most wonderful thing yet brought about by evolution . . . Mr. Lovecraft's poem is good as far as it goes, but it somehow fails fully to satisfy the reader who is looking for some strong conclusion to be drawn from the processes described." And in commenting upon Lovecraft's tribute to Jonathan Hoag - "Mr. Lovecraft pays an enthusiastic tribute to Mr. Hoag, still in the archaic poetic medium which obviously to him spells the last word in poetry." Well there is much much more! FROM THE HYMAN BRADOFSKY COLLECTION. Bookseller Inventory #
