The Case of Charles Dexter Ward is an exquisite horror story. An astute reader will figure out the plot long before the characters, and then you follow their actions as they determine the hows and whys of it.

I always regard Lovecraft's use of language as older than he was, but that it drives the story, sinking the reader more deeply into the world in which the Elder Gods may emerge.
