Product Overview

Ghosts, precognition, suicide, and the afterlife are all themes in these thrilling stories by Britain and America''s greatest Victorian women, proving their talent for creating dark, sensational, and horrifying tales of the supernatural. This anthology showcases some of the best and most representative work by female writers during this period, including Emily Bronte, Mary Braddon, George Eliot, and Edith Nesbit, as well as Elizabeth Gaskell, Charlotte Riddell, Louisa Baldwin, Mary Penn, Violet Quirk, and Elizabeth Stuart Phelps. Editor Mike Ashley provides valuable insight into the authors'' lives. Each story still has the ability to shock, frighten, and show how Victorian women perfected and developed the Gothic genre.
