Riassunto: Arthur Machen was a Welsh writer and mystic who was best known for supernatural, fantasy, and horror fiction.

About the Author:
Arthur Machen (3 March 1863 – 15 December 1947) was a Welsh author and mystic of the 1890s and early 20th century. He is best known for his influential supernatural, fantasy, and horror fiction. His novella The Great God Pan (1890; 1894) has garnered a reputation as a classic of horror). He is also well known for his leading role in creating the legend of the Angels of Mons. At the age of eleven, Machen boarded at Hereford Cathedral School, where he received an excellent classical education. Family poverty ruled out attendance at university, and Machen was sent to London, where he sat exams to attend medical school but failed to get in. Machen, however, showed literary promise, publishing in 1881 a long poem "Eleusinia" on the subject of the Eleusinian Mysteries. Around 1890 Machen began to publish in literary magazines, writing stories influenced by the works of Robert Louis Stevenson, some of which used gothic or fantastic themes. This led to his first major success, "The Great God Pan". It was published in 1894 by John Lane in the noted Keynotes Series, which was part of the growing aesthetic movement of the time. HP Lovecraft's Cthulhu mythos was heavily influenced by Machen, and through it Machen's ideas are at the heart of the modern horror genre and the work of writers like Clive Barker and Stephen King.
