“My Favourite Character“

   Poem (36 lines in 6 stanzas); written on January 31, 1925. First published in the Brooklynite(January 1926).
   This comic poem—in which HPL examines numerous characters in classic and contemporary works of literature, but then decides that, in regard to determining his favorite, “I’ll frankly give myself the nomination”—was written for a Blue Pencil Club meeting, in which amateurs were asked to prepare literary contributions on a stated topic.
