Edition Details:

Language: English

Blurbs:
  • "These tales are a modern refinement of German romanticism. ...They are peopled, or haunted, by ghosts of a past age, voluptuaries dreaming of the singers and ballerinas of the operas of Mozart and Gluck, young men who are too melancholy to enjoy love or too perverse to profit by it, maidens dedicated to chastity and others hopeful of a gentlemanly seduction; their generally fantastic adventures are exquisitely played." The New York Times
  • "[Seven Gothic Tales is] in that special realm in which artistry is more real than reality" Time
