    I live in the same neighborhood as HP Lovecraft. He was a very frightened man. I think his racism hurt his wife and destroyed their marriage. And you can't excuse him because he lived in racist times. There were many accomplished people of color living in Providence, he could only have avoided them by willful blindness.
    He must have had good qualities, a lot of people loved him. But his sense of superiority isolated him, limited his options, likely shortened his life.
