En relación a las dos entradas anteriores, leo en el texto de Joyce Carol Oates sobre Lovecraft:

Lovecraft took ascetic pride in eating frugally, estimating that he could subsist on thirty cents a day, $2.10 a week; often he ate unheated food out of cans and aged, even spoiled food. A lifelong phobia against doctors and hospitals prevented his intestinal cancer from being diagnosed until it was too late; but, in true Lovecraftian fashion, despite being in terrible agony he kept a "death diary" until he could no longer hold a pen.
