In this week’s episode I’ll be discussing an early H. P. Lovecraft tale, “The Tree.” While it doesn’t fit as snugly into Lovecraft’s Cthulhu Mythos as some of his other tales, it does have some interesting elements going for it. The setting of Ancient Greece, circa 4th Century B.C. being the most prominent in my opinion.
Correction, according to a listener, Ningauble, Lovecraft didn’t discover Arthur Machen until after “The Tree” was written.
