Do you ever feel that parts of your life resemble Lovecraft's? For me it's being an amateur scholar with minimal academic qualifications. Also earning very little and getting financial assistance from friends and relatives. I also like exploring places on my own, usually by bus or train. I've wandered towns and cities from Scotland to Bavaria. Has anyone else noticed the parallels, or is it just me?

Not just you. I've always identified with Lovecraft's self-contained nature, his dislike of certain interpersonal politics and unfortunately his having to 'enjoy' life as best he can given frugal means.

Yeah, I think he's actually a pretty good role model vis a vis autodidaticism & living on a budget. :)
