HP Lovecraft was born in 1890 in Providence, Rhode Island. He was a prodigious but sickly youth. At 14 he contemplated suicide when his grandfather died leaving him and his mother almost penniless.He began to write poetry and a series of literary spats in a newspaper brought him attention and the beginnings of a career.But until the last decade of his life the works for which we is so well know did not arrive. That last decade was prolific but with little income his life downgraded from one rented house to another.In 1936, often malnourished he was diagnosed with cancer and succumbed to it the following year.
