Media : Paperback
SKU MIX6-U6-OXF8-139E-14998

 

 
Brand New Book, Good Condition, Dispatch from our warehouse in the UK.

Book Description&newline;&newline;With their evocative settings amid mists and shadows, in ruinous houses, on lonely roads and wild moorlands, in abandoned churches and over-grown gardens, ghost stories have long exercised a universal fascination. Responding to people's overwhelming attraction to anything frightening, this&newline;marvelous anthology of some of the very best English ghost stories combines a serious literary purpose with the simple intention of arousing a pleasurable fear of the doings of the dead.&newline;&newline;As the first volume to present the full range and vitality of the ghost fiction tradition, this selection of forty-two stories, written between 1829 and 1968, demonstrates the tradition's historical development, as well as its major themes and characteristics. Though the genre reached its peak&newline;in the nineteenth century, it enjoyed a second flowering between the two World Wars and even now still attracts dedicated practitioners and readers. The anthology includes stories by Walter Scott, M. R. James, Bram Stoker, Rudyard Kipling, Edith Wharton, Somerset Maugham, T. H. White, and many&newline;others.&newline;Stressing the important contribution women writers have made to the genre, the collection also offers eight stories by women, ranging from Amelia Edward's &doublequote;The Phantom Ghost&doublequote; (1864) to Elizabeth Bowen's &doublequote;Hand in Glove&doublequote; (1952).
