    It is a nautical horror story this time, and H.P. Lovecraft does it with his usual build up of dread until the final climax. There's a major blunder in the narration though, but I'll let you discover it for yourself. Past that, it's a good story.

    I do not understand The Temple. Is it about insanity? Is it about depression or suicide? I have no idea as my thoughts were everywhere on this book. No idea what to think. It was ok but not great. It was meh but not oh so enjoyable like many other H.P. Lovecraft. Definitely not a favorite.

    Written in 1920, published in 1925, nearly 11 pages. This is a nice, creepy, chilling story about madness. Whatever the background, this story is about people being divided and going mad. The first division is German vs. British. The second division is Officers vs. Crew. The third division is soft Rhinelander (Klenze) vs. strong Prussian (Heinrich). Every time there was a division, someone goes mad and someone gets killed. Aside from that, it is sort of a bloodletting for Lovecraft himself.

He would have been in his mid-twenties when The Great War broke out, just old enough to really understand politics. Germans were not popular in the United States for fairly obvious reasons. He is venting against the German people for World War I. The story is filled with expressions of antipathy toward the German protagonist - he is arrogant, elitist and aloof, and he goes just as mad as everyone else in the story.

    A fine tale of deep sea exploitation and cosmic horrors which lurk beneath the waves.
