Both authors deal with strange and fantastical worlds, and both authors like to make up lots of silly words to accentuate the strangeness and fantasticalness.
Both revel in the bizarre and the unnatural. And both were a little racist.
Granted Lovecraft usually goes for more of a horror angle, but Dr. Seuss can get somewhat creepy too.
"What would I do?" Probably soil myself.
In honor of these literary giants, I've compiled a list of words they made up and turned it into a quiz. Can you tell the difference between Lovecraft and Dr. Seuss?
And apparently I'm not the only one who thinks these two greats should go together. (You won't regret clicking that link. Unless of course you value your sanity.)
