Horror comes in many flavors, and we remain partial to the Gothic variety. This anthology collects such creepy classics as Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" and "The Fall of the House of Usher; Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wallpaper"; Robert Louis Stevenson's "The Body-Snatcher"; and extracts from Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey, and Horace Walpole's The Castle of Otranto. Here too are tales by Elizabeth Gaskell, Nathaniel Hawthorne, and Wilkie Collins, while poets are well-represented with selections by Thomas Hardy, W.B. Yeats, Christina Rossetti, and Robert Browning.
