Edith Birkhead was an Assistant Lecturer in English Literature at the University of Bristol; she'd also been a Noble Fellow at the University of Liverpool. She wrote this book to describe "the growth of supernatural fiction in English literature, beginning with the vogue of the Gothic Romance and Tale of Terror towards the close of the eighteenth century. The origin and development of the Gothic Romance are set forth in detail from the appearance of Walpole's Castle of Otranto in 1764 to the publication of Maturin's Melmoth the Wanderer in 1820; and the survey of this phase of the novel is continued, in the later chapters, to modern times. One of these is devoted to the Tale of Terror in America, where in the hands of Hawthorne and Poe its treatment became a fine art." She makes fascinating insights into horror literature and its roots and origins; if you have an interest in horror, this book is an important one.
