This is the second of a pair of short novels that the poet wrote whilst at Oxford and whilst he was 17. They are both classed as classic Gothic horror novels and oh, are they Gothic! They must have been horrific back when he wrote them but not now.

 

For a short story there are a lot of characters. Wolfstein is the leading man and Megalena is the leading lady. There is also much in the way of castle turrets, deep forests, caves, thunder and lightning, heaving bosoms and fainting. And, like the first one, they all die in the end.

 

I loved this, it was suitably Gothic and was written just like you'd expect P B Shelley to write a novel.

 

 Highly recommended.
