Late Victorian Gothic Tales

Edited by Roger Luckhurst

Oxford World's Classics

  • The only mainstream anthology to bring together the defining Gothic tales of the 1890s
  • Complements and deepens the context for the most enduring Gothic fiction of the period: Stevenson's Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde and Stoker's Dracula
  • Mixes well-known authors with the more obscure and brings together stories usually only available in obscure editions or in single-author collections
  • All texts derive from initial publication in the 1890s, rather than their subsequent, often revised, versions
  • Notes provide short biographies of the authors and the introduction explains the diverse reasons for the Gothic revival
