The paper presents an analysis of three texts pertaining to the H.P. Lovecraft mythos: two stories from the end of the nineteenth century which inspired Lovecraft (Ambrose Bierce’s “An Inhabitant of Carcosa” and Robert W. Chambers’ “The Repairer of Reputations”) and a graphic novel inspired by the author from Providence, Rhode Island, his works and his inspirations (Alan Moore’s and Jacen Burrows’ Providence). Through analysis of the texts (and images) and setting them both against each other and against critical approaches, the paper demonstrates the differences in the portrayal of alternative worlds as elements of (possibly skewed) perception rather than an objective external reality. The case study serves as the basis for demonstrating what the analyzed texts imply to be the social and practical implications of changes, partly resulting from the reception of literature, in subjective perception.
