Description
Information
An encounter with the supernatural in an everyday setting accentuates its strangeness; a truth used to eerie effect in Gaskell's Gothic tales. A portrait turned to the wall, a hidden manuscript, a mysterious child that lives on the freezing moors, a doppelganger formed by a woman's bitter curse: all of these things hint at male tyranny and woman as avenging angel - or devil. Gaskell was fascinating by the dualities in women's lives and the way in which fact and fiction merge, and explored this interest in her compelling, mysterious and haunting stories and novella. This edition includes an introduction, chronology and explanatory notes.
