Book Description
Brimming with tales of terror, suspense, and the uncanny, this work offers the first collection devoted to the Gothic genre. Each story contains the common elements of the gothic tale--a warped sense of time, a claustrophobic setting, a link to archaic modes of thought, and the impression of a
descent into disintegration. Yet taken together, they reveal the progression of the genre from stories of feudal villains amid crumbling ruins to a greater level of sophistication in which writers brought the gothic tale out of its medieval setting, and placed it in the contemporary world. Bringing
together the work of such writers as Eudora Welty, Thomas Hardy, Edgar Allan Poe, William Faulkner, Arthur Conan Doyle, Joyce Carol Oates, and Jorge Luis Borges, The Oxford Book of Gothic Tales presents a wide array of the sinister and unsettling for all lovers of ghost stories, fantasy, and
horror.

    antes que nada les recomiendo que tengan u buen diccionario cuando menos en los primeros cuentos ya que es lenguaje un tatno viejo y hay partes que son confusas por sus abreviciones.Además, de tener tambien alguno de fránces ya que hay frases que contiene este libro.Dejando a un lado esto hhubo varios cuento que me parecieron buenos y voy amencionr alguos por su contenido andreas vesalius de anatomist,rappacini´s daughter by nathaniel hawthorne,bloody blench by marcel schwob,the adventure of the speckled band by conan doyle, the outsider by H.P. Lovecraft,sardonicus byray rusell, secret observations of the goat girl muy bueno by joyce carol oates y if you touched my heart by isabel allende por que hubo otros que a mi ver la narrativa era buea pero no tenian caso el que odie fue el the monkey de isak denisen, que aunque tiene muchas referencias buenas creo que escogieron mal su titulo.

    An extensive, well thought collection of Gothic novels.
    It would be a must-read if you like the Gothic genre, but if that is the case, chances are you have already red most of the novels in this book
