“Bureau of Critics“


“Bureau of Critics“
   Series of articles in the National Amateur (1923–36), reviewing contributions by amateur journalists of the NAPA. The articles appeared as follows: “Bureau of Critics” (March 1923); “Bureau of Critics” (December 1931); “Critics Submit First Report” (December 1932); “Report of Bureau of Critics” (March 1933); “Report of Bureau of Critics” (June 1933); “Bureau of Critics Comment on Verse, Typography, Prose” (December 1933); “Chairman of the Bureau of Critics Reports on Poetry” (September 5, 1934); “Report of the Bureau of Critics” (December 1934); “Report of the Bureau of Critics” (March 1935); “Lovecraft Offers Verse Criticism” (June 1935); “Some Current Amateur Verse” (December 1935).
   The articles are similar to the “Department of Public Criticism” pieces HPL wrote for the UAPA. Here, however, he generally focused on amateur verse; he usually managed to persuade other critics (e.g., Helm C.Spink, Edward H.Cole, Rheinhart Kleiner) to write sections on prose, typography, and other subjects.
