Such a pity that the selection of 40 poems includes inconsistent works such as the all-too-controversial (and minor) On The Creation of Niggers but not The Ancient Track (1930) which may well be HP Lovecraft's best achieved poem. I have contributed three translations of The Ancient Track: French, German and Italian, each time citing the original text by Lovecraft. But you still have not added this poem to the list. Heigh-ho!
