The Case of Charles Dexter Ward is a short horror novel written by H. P. Lovecraft and originally published in 1941.

"FROM a private hospital for the insane near Providence, Rhode Island, there recently disappeared an exceedingly singular person. He bore the name of Charles Dexter Ward, and was placed under restraint most reluc- tantly by the grieving father who had watched his aberration grow from a mere eccentricity to a dark mania..."
