Does /lit/ like Lord Dunsany?
Personally. he's my favorite poet. I like his prose, and the imagery he conveys. It's funny, that I don't particularly like Lovecraft, but the few things by him I do like are his stories and poems that he admitted himself (and are obvious to everyone else, regardless of his admittance) are Dunsany-inspired.

Works from him I particularly enjoy are:
The Kith of the Elf-Folk
The Doom of La Traviata
The Beggars
The Unhappy Body
>>
Where would you recommend I start? Has to be fairly short.

>>7568337
Start with Your Prodigious Engine

Well, all of his works are short stories and poems, so ideally, you could start with anything from Dunsany.

>Well, all of his works are short stories and poems

he wrote at least one novel, king of elfland's daughter

I'd like to read him, but he is a little obscure, is hard to find his books (not even translations). I suppose he has some recognition thanks to lovecraft.

All his works are online, fortunately.
Also, when I was in university, the school library had all - if not most - of his works. Very old, some of them first editions. It was very pleasing to me, that I should have found them. I own a copy of 'The Gods of Pegana' - however, it is not an old copy, but a new reprint circa 2009
