“The Tree” By H.P. Lovecraft Review

On a mountain which was a chosen haunt for the Greek God Pan is an olive grove, and a fearful, human-like olive tree within it.

The plot itself had actually surprised me on how goof it actually have been. Because I’ve read some shirt stories by H.P Lovecraft before reading this one and I gotta say that they did disappoint me very much when it came to the plot but this one didn’t because it was so good. 

The plot takes the turn to the classical Greek setting. I’m a huge fan of mythologies and as we all know the greek mythology is probably one of the biggest and richest mythologies which exists. 

The writing style here was bad, I felt like the short story was written by someone who have never written a short story before.  But this can be explained by the fact that short story is sort of a step outside of comfort zone for H.P Lovecraft. Because this one is a little but different than most of his other works. 

The action itself in this short story doesn’t exist because there aren’t much happening in this short story. Which really disappointed me here.

When it comes to the characters in this short story I gotta say that here again they were very poor and I couldn’t connect with them. Which really ruined the short story for me.

I give this short story 2 / 5
