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.
Here are seven exquisite tales combining the keen psychological insight characteristic of the modern short story with the haunting mystery of the nineteenth-century Gothic tale, in the tradition of writers such as Goethe, Hoffmann, and Poe.

This is quite different, except that in both that book and this book Karen Blixen proves herself a master mistress?
I’ve decided the “Gothic” in the title means, not to put too fine a point on it, that these are essentially horror stories–but they’re muted horror stories that unfold at a very leisurely pace and discursively. They’re also oozing erudition and steeped in the sensibility of the early nineteenth century.
Most of them involve a weave of subsumed and parallel tales, a thing which tends to try my patience as a reader–and mostly why I’ve docked the book a star. The only work I know which comes close to it in sevem respect is Stanislaw Lem’s “The Cyberiad”, and I actually recommend tackling that first to test your tolerance for nested stories. Audio Cassette Verified Purchase. Beautifully read version of this strange and fascinating collection of stories, but as far as I know the only copy obtainable I have asked Audible to produce a recorded version, hope they will do so!
Good read – excellent author! One person found this helpful. The words crafted by the author linger in my mind and thoughts. I often have to stop and re-read a passage because it talex truly scrumptious with detail; I feel as though I am there in the setting. The stories are not scary but peculiar in sfven own right. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. It is fantastical and engaging, gothiic for bed time reading. It appeals to contemporary readers although written many decades ago.
