CASTLE OF OTRANTO, VATHEK AND NIGHTMARE ABBEY

HORACE WALPOLE, W. BECKFORD &    Book Number: 59996    Product format: Paperback

A superb collection which runs the gamut of Gothic fiction. In Horace Walpole's 'The Castle of Otranto', often regarded as the first true Gothic romance, we have a template for such works, which other writers adopted and adapted. 'Vathek' developed the form further, introducing Orientalism to the Gothic mix of horror and mystery, creating the finest European imitation of the Arabian Nights. The final novel 'Nightmare Abbey' satirises the format to great comic effect while still retaining the essential chilling elements. 260pp in paperback.
