GARCIA, Yuri. Sacred and Cybercultural Monsters: H. P. Lovecraft and his mythology in contemporary culture. Galáxia (São Paulo) [online]. 2018, n.39, pp.203-214. ISSN 1519-311X.

This article aims to analyze the relation between horror and religion in the work of H. P. Lovecraft and its articulations through other media and in the field of cyberculture. The author, who has not enjoyed much prestige in the past, has increasingly penetrated the current scene in the fields considered erudite as much as the massive or popular scopes. Thus, in investigating the reasons for this surprising rebirth of Lovecraft in the sphere of so-called high culture (literature, arts, philosophy), we are at the same time seeking the motivations of his interest in popular and media culture and studying the forms and appropriations which his themes, ideas or even works were absorbed by the contemporary media.

Palabras clave : Lovecraft; cyberculture; horror; religion.
