Tales of Wonder Paperback / softback
Edited by Douglass H. Thomson
Part of the Broadview Editions series
In the late eighteenth century, Matthew Gregory "Monk" Lewis, a notorious author of lurid Gothic novels and plays, began to gather this collection of horror ballads.
Including original and traditional works, translations and adaptations, and even burlesques of the Gothic, this "hobgoblin repast," as Lewis called it, brings together a fascinating assortment of works.
Contributors include Lewis, the young Walter Scott, William Taylor of Norwich, John Leyden, and Robert Southey.Appendices contain selections from Tales of Terror (1801), a text long intertwined with Lewis's collection; information on Scott's An Apology for Tales of Terror (1799); and parodies and reviews of Lewis's particular brand of Gothic poetry.
