Description
Touring the literary landscape of the 18th and 19th centuries through the novella form, Kenneth Brown presents nine significant shorter works from some of the era's great writers, and in his introduction reminds us how different their world was from ours. Samuel Johnson's biography of Richard Savage, written some 250 years ago, raises the life of a scoundrel to the level of great art; George Eliot profoundly influenced Henry James with her horror story The Lifted Veil; Sheridan Le Fanu writes a sinister yet gracious supernatural Gothic; and Nightmare Abbey is Thomas Love Peacock's satire on his friends, the Romantic poets Shelley, Coleridge, and Byron.
