Who was better: Edgar Allen Poe or H.P. Lovecraft? and why?
This answer can not be anwsered. Lovercraft looked up to Edgar Allen Poe and yet he did a very unique, dark and sleazy horror genre that was unique at the time, the same as was Poe's before that. they are absolutely two different types of writers and their works are related as solar panels are related to weight loss.
This is really the question who do you like better, but who was better is out of the question. Especially when we know that H.P. looked up to Poe!
I am a great fan of both, I know most of Poe's songs by heart, including Raven, on the other hand I have a customized collection of Lovecraft's short stories hand picked by me, in order they should have been placed in the so called Necronomicon edition of his short stories, but didn't. So again, there is no way t6hat the answer you presented here can be answered as it doesn't make much sense, not for anyone familiar with their history and their work.
Good Day ZarkoZivkovic
My, but that is a passionate, well thought out response. I did not realize that I would touch a nerve. I almost feel as though I have offended you somehow. Sorry about that.
Alright then, whose writing do you prefer: Poe's or Lovecrafts's? Hey, do you think you'd like to write a hub about it?
Thank you for responding, and so quickly too!
I agree with Zarko and to answer your second question, I prefer Lovecraft.
You're not comparing like with like so I agree with Zarko. I think the only similarity they had was that they were both Anglophiles, if my memory serves me well.

Why do people that don't believe in God, respond to questions about God?Don't get me wrong. I respect and appreciate every response, even if they disagree. That is everyone's right. But I usually don't waste time and energy in things that I don't believe in. Sure, I don't believe in Santa and still...

Why do so many people look to people for answers that people don't have?"What does God look like?" type of questions really concern me. Which do you find more concerning...the one who asks the question or the one who answers like they know?
