Three Gothic Tales
Publisher: Voices of Today
The Evil Eye
These three tales were written for the popular literary gift annual The Keepsake in 1828, 1829 and 1831. Their ‘sensational’ themes include exotic locations, dire misfortune, long-lost kin, stolen identity, evil redeemed, plots resolved by strange coincidences, and in one case at least, an encounter with a supernatural being. Gothic fare.
The cover image is taken from an illustration to The Evil Eye in The Keepsake for 1830.
