Tales of Mystery and the Macabre by Elizabeth Gaskell

Book Description

With an Introduction by David Stuart Davies. 'In the great mirror opposite I saw myself, and right behind, another wicked fearful self, so like me my soul seemed to quiver within me, as though not knowing to which similitude of body it belonged'. Elizabeth Gaskell is better known today for her pioneering social novels such as Mary Barton (1848) but she also wrote some fascinating tales of the supernatural and the macabre, which are collected here in this volume. The real charm of this dark anthology is its variety. Unlike so many writers of this kind of material, Gaskell allows the story to fit the style rather than the other way around and as result there is a charming freshness to each tale. This remarkable author uses different voices, tones and topics to engage her readers and as you turn from one story to the next you cannot be quite sure what to expect.

Books By Author Elizabeth Gaskell

Cranford by Elizabeth Gaskell Cranford, Paperback (October 2013)

The story follows the lives of Mary Smith and her friends, Miss Matty and Miss Deborah, two spinster sisters in the fictional town of Cranford closely modelled on Knutsford in Cheshire, which Mrs Gaskell knew well.

Mary Barton by Elizabeth Gaskell Mary Barton, Paperback (August 2012)

Elizabeth Gaskell's first novel depicts the great clashes between capital and labour, which arose from rapid industrialisation and problems of trade in the mid-19th century. Mary Barton was published in 1848, at a time of great social ferment in Europe, and it reflects its revolutionary moment through an English lens.

Cousin Phillis and Other Stories by Elizabeth Gaskell Cousin Phillis and Other Stories, Paperback (March 2010)

This representative selection includes five tales of very different kinds written in the 1850s and the longer Cousin Phillis. Immensely readable and sophisticated works of art, they show Gaskell's mastery of the genre, in an edition that celebrates her achievements in shorter fiction and the context in which they first appeared.
