Overview

Escuchar historias de miedo a la luz de una hoguera es algo que nos fascina desde los albores de la humanidad. Como reacción al espíritu racional de la Ilustración, algunos autores del siglo XVIII apelaron a aquello que más nos asusta y se escapa a la razón: así nació el cuento de terror gótico. Con él nos adentramos en un mundo siniestro de castillos, tormentas nocturnas, fantasmas vengativos, monstruos innombrables, música de órgano y puertas chirriantes. En esta selección encontrarás algunas de las mejores narraciones del terror gótico clásico, escritas por los nombres fundamentales del género.Gothic horror arose as a counterpoint to the Enlightenment, as a way of escaping rationality in favor of a sinister world of castles, vengeful spirits, organ music, and creaking doors. This selection includes some of the best classic Gothic horror stories written by fundamental authors in the genre.
