“The Tree”

Well I work on getting some new stuff out, I’ll continue with the Lovecraft series.

Raw Feed (2005): “The Tree”, H. P. Lovecraft, 1920.

Not a particularly compelling story, but there are two points of interest here (assuming I was paying attention and my memory is correct).

First, this is Lovecraft’s only story set in Ancient Greece.

Second, it is the first example in his work of the malignant, oddly shaped vegetation motif which shows up in other stories including, perhaps most notably, “The Colour Out of Space“.
