Herbert West-Reanimator is a horror short story written by H.P. Lovecraft, first published in 1922 and was originally serialized.

It tells the story of a scientist named Herbert West who is obsessed with the idea of bringing the dead back to life. As narrator we have his fellow medical student, who tells us about the macabre experiments that West and he perform to reanimate fresh corpses.

These tests were usually conducted under questionable ethical conditions and their results usually ended catastrophically, thus exploring the fine line between life and death.

In this work of horror, the protagonist is portrayed as a character whose drive is based on a mixture of scientific curiosity and disregard for morality and ethics. This leads the reader into increasingly cruel and disturbing descriptions of processes. As such, this story is known for its macabre atmosphere and its exploration of the themes of death, morality, and the limits of science, as we are accustomed to seeing in the works of H.P. Lovecraft.

"Of Herbert West, who was my friend in college and in after life, I can speak only with extreme terror. This terror is not due altogether to the sinister manner of his recent disappearance, but was engendered by the whole nature of his life-work, and first gained its acute form more than seventeen years ago, when we were in the third year of our course at the Miskatonic University Medical School in Arkham."
