Description
Information
From tales of fabulous enchantments and supernatural horror to subtler, more psychological terrors, the best of nineteenth-century fantastic literature is collected here by Italo Calvino. These mysterious and macabre tales include Hoffmann's nightmarish 'The Sandman', Poe's terrifying 'The Tell-Tale Heart' and Dickens's chilling ghost story 'The Signal-Man', with relatively unknown works from celebrated writers including Honore de Balzac, Henry James, Sir Walter Scott, Guy de Mauspassant and Robert Louis Stevenson, alongside lesser-known contributors. Each tale comes with a fascinating introduction by Italo Calvino.
