For many high school readers, Gothic fiction, fantasy, and horror are genres that maximize engagement with literature. “The Lurking Fear” by H.P. Lovecraft is a compelling short story that features elements consistent with those genres: ghosts; unsolved murders; secret investigations; and cannibalistic, apelike creatures. With this bundle of high school resources covering “The Lurking Fear” English teachers will save valuable time at home without sacrificing rigor in the classroom. Included are the following: a multiple choice, plot-based quiz; a worksheet composed of rigorous close reading questions; the public domain narrative; and answer keys.
