    Un buen escrito que machaca los manidos temas de su siglo Bien narrado, pero da muchas vueltas a los di logos dejando de lado la atmosfera tan necesaria en este g nero.EL relato de la mano fantasmal brilla por su originalidad, m s propio de la cultura as atica.

    Sheridan le Fanu is just about my favourite 19th century writer of supernatural and gothic tales The Room in the Dragon Volant is somewhat unusual for le Fanu, since it s not really a supernatural tale It does however have plenty of gothic elements and some genuine horror, and it s an ingenious and entertaining tale It s set in France just after the end of the Napoleonic Wars, and involves a young rich Englishman who falls in love with a beautiful but mysterious, and unhappily married, counte Sheridan le Fanu is just about my favourite 19th century writer of supernatural and gothic tales The Room in the Dragon Volant is somewhat unusual for le Fanu, since it s not really a supernatural tale It does however have plenty of gothic elements and some genuine horror, and it s an ingenious and entertaining tale It s set in France just after the end of the Napoleonic Wars, and involves a young rich Englishman who falls in love with a beautiful but mysterious, and u...

    Le Fanu should be celebrated .This might be not be Exhibit A for that argument that would be Carmilla but it s pretty close Here, Le Fanu shows yet again that he can take old elements of stories notably from Poe and conjure something that would have an influence on genre literature centuries later Here, he mixes in a Gothic atmosphere and dread, romance, and a puzzle box mystery Not all of it works but that doesn t detract from LeFanu...
