“Unknown, The“


“Unknown, The“
   Poem (12 lines in quatrains); probably written in the fall of 1916. First published in the Conservative (October 1916) (as by “Elizabeth Berkeley”).
   A weird vignette in which the narrator finds something horrifying in the face of the moon. HPL notes in a letter to the Gallomo (September 12, 1923; AHT) that the poem was published under Winifred Virginia Jackson’s pseudonym “in an effort to mystify the [amateur] public by having widely dissimilar work from the same nominal hand.” HPL also published “The Peace Advocate” ( Tryout,May 1917) under this pseudonym.
