Uncle Silas by Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
Book DescriptionThis is one of the most significant and intriguing Gothic novels of the Victorian period and is enjoyed today as a modern psychological thriller. In "Uncle Silas" (1864) Le Fanu brought up to date Mrs Radcliffe's earlier tales of virtue imprisoned and menaced by unscrupulous schemers. The narrator, Maud Ruthyn, is a 17 year old orphan left in the care of her fearful uncle, Silas. Together with his boorish son and a sinister French governess, Silas plots to kill Maud and claim her fortune. The novel established Le Fanu as a master of horror fiction.
