    Abstract

    An in-depth, genre-oriented study of the literary works of H.P Lovecraft and their influence and effect on the writers of contemporary horror fiction. Close-textual analysis of the work of Stephen King, Clive Barker, Ramsey Campbell and Lovecraft himself provide the primary research used to create this study. In addition, this essay critically reflects upon my own creative artifacts, which are literary experiments used to examine the conventions and philosophies conveyed through the work of the aforementioned authors.
