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 uite sure what to expec. I went into this book hoping for a really good gothic read and I won't necessarily say that I was disappointed It had all the elements of a gothic fiction The stories however were a little less 'thriling' than they could have been My top 3 from this anthology are Lois the Witch; the Grey Woman and the Doom of the Griffiths The setting for most of these stories is dark mysterious and maybe sometimes gloomy which I really enjoyed I also liked that Gaskell wrote about times that were way before her and managed to capture the tones of those times Some of the characters from the stories were dramatic and I really liked that kind of one of the main reasons I like reading 19th century gothic novelsOverall it's a good read if you're looking for a gothic anthology to pass your time and not really get too invested in

Elizabeth Gaskell ↠ 3 summary

Tales of Mystery the MacabreCh 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. Although in general the stories are interesting and retain a little of suspence especially Poor Clare and Lois the Witch the building up of the stories takes too long and it loses some of its way Too many times the climax of the story is just plain boring or uneventful particularly in The Grey Lady Overall an agreeable book but do not foresee rereading it ever
