Howard Lovecraft is an American writer, who became famous for his works of horror fiction. Nowadays he is considered as one of the best 20th-century authors in his genre. "Nyarlathotep" is a story published in November 1920 in "The United Amateur". It is written by first person. The story opens with the describing of a strange feeling of anticipation of a big evil. The narrator experienced the end of the world and now describes how it was. Nyarlathotep came from Egypt, he looked like a Pharaoh. Wherever he came, the people there started to have nightmares. He organized a demonstration, when he came to the narrator’s city. The observers split into 3 columns: the first group disappeared around the corner, from which was heard a moaning then; the second went into the subway station with the sound of laugh; the third group with the narrator travelled from the city to the country. The narrator lagged behind the group a bit and then saw “graveyard of the Universe”... Lovecraft’s childhood nightmares underlay the story.
