* Stefano Lazzarin (2014), “Il volto velato: Iperbole e reticenza in Howard Phillips Lovecraft, e nel racconto fantastico e d’orrore otto-novecentesco”, Between journal, Vol 4, No.7, 2014. (In Italian. “Lovecraft … as part of a certain line of nineteenth- and twentieth-century fantastic genre and horror literature [which] plays with — and reflects on — the rhetorical devices of hyperbole and reticence. In the texts examined by the author, what cannot be represented is chased throughout the story and is finally revealed, but only to leave room for an irresolvable ambiguity … The last horror, unnameable and unthinkable, is nothing more than an empty signifier.” In Italian.)
