Guest Long Read: Victorian Spooks - Charles Dickens and the Art of a Good Ghost Story

Guest Long Read: Victorian Spooks - Charles Dickens and the Art of a Good Ghost Story | The Gothic - English Literature@Blackburn College | Scoop.it

It’s that time of year again – time to round up your fainthearted friends, flick off the lights and frazzle their nerves with the best ghost story you can muster. But before you shine a flashlight up your face and start bleating out another generic “It was a dark and stormy night…” you might want to take a few pointers from a master of the macabre – Charles Dickens.Related

"There is no escape." Horace Walpole and the terrifying rise of the Gothic | OUPblog | The Gothic - English Literature@Blackburn College | Scoop.it
This year is the 250th anniversary of Horace Walpole’s The Castle of Otranto, first published on Christmas Eve 1764 as a seasonal ghost story. The Castle of Otranto is often dubbed the "first Gothic novel" due to Walpole describing it as a "Gothic story," but for him the Gothic meant very different things from what it might do today.
