Re: The Dunwich Horror
I read The Dunwich Horror only very recently, when it was linked to one of these threads, and I know nothing at all about Lovecraft, so apologies if this is something which is very jejune or, contrariwise, something which has been discussed to death elsewhere. But since in creating a mythical town he has used the name of a real one, is there meant to be a link in some way with the real Dunwich in Suffolk? I was thinking in particular of the idea of a thriving town/city being overcome by powerful natural forces. Or is it simply coincidence?
