No description available, The Victorian era saw the first great flowering of the detective story Edgar Allen Poe Charles Dickens Wilkie Collins Arthur Conan Doyle J S LeFanu and a host of others pioneered a genre of fiction that remains among the most popular today Now in Victorian Tales of Mystery and Detection Michael Cox provides a sampling of the finest detective stories written from the s to the early twentieth century br Here readers will find a vast array of detectives and villains and a multitude of murder methods and motives In Edgar Allen Poe s The Purloined Letter the identity of the robber is known from the start it is the surreptitious retrieval of the letter that is the mystery In M McDonnell Bodkin s Murder By Proxy a gentleman is shot in the head at close range by a murderer who was not even in the same room Charles Dickens s Hunted Down portrays a murderer who was slowly poisoning his very own nieces for their insurance money And in Sir Arthur Conan Doyle s The Lost Special a train and its passengers vanish in thin air In addition Cox who is rapidly becoming one of the foremost experts on Victorian popular fiction arranges the stories in chronological order so that readers can follow the genre as it develops over time For instance in Conan Doyle s The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle we see an example of the many Sherlock Holmes escapades that popularized and came to typify the detective story for the Victorian public And in the progression of the stories we witness the evolution of the investigator from Poe s brilliant and eccentric Chevalier C August Dupin to Doyle s scientific Sherlock Holmes into Robert Barr s cavalier Valmont a possible model for Agatha Christie s Hercule Poirot br Including well known stories by famous authors as well as little known gems reprinted for the first time Victorian Tales of Mystery and Detection not only offers hours of enjoyment and escape for all lovers of crime fiction but also brings alive the society language the sights and sounds of the Victorian age br br br Contents br br The purloined letter by Edgar Allan Poe br The murdered cousin by J S Le Fanu br Hunted down by Charles Dickens br Levison s

Baroness Orczy br The green spider by Sax Rohmer br The clue of the silver spoons by Robert Barr, The ghosts of fiction were not killed off by the advent of the electric light the invention of the telephone the coming of the motor car or even by the once unthinkable horrors of technological warfare Instead they took over the trappings landscapes and cultural assumptions of the twentieth century for their ancient purposes Thus Michael Cox introduces The Oxford Book of Twentieth Century Ghost Stories a unique collection of of the best and most chilling ghost stories of our era br The first anthology to trace the evolution of the ghost story over the last one hundred years this book demonstrates the variety and versatility of the genre and the different ways in which stories of the supernatural have adapted to twentieth century venues and concerns In these tales we encounter not only the returning dead but also distinctly modern phantoms a haunted typewriter a ghost that travels by train and an urban specter made of smoke and soot There are child ghosts and haunted houses playful spooks and deadly apparitions The authors of these uncanny tales are as diverse as the kinds of stories they tell there are ghost stories by such specialists as M R James and Algernon Blackwood and many by authors not commonly associated with the genre F Scott Fitzgerald Edith Wharton Graham Greene A S Byatt and Angela Carter are only a few of the literary celebrities included in this collection At a time when our era seems to grow increasingly rational and predictable The Oxford Book of Twentieth Century Ghost Stories reminds us of the joys of uncertainty and wonder Distinctive and gripping these stories will linger long in the memory, The Victorians excelled at telling ghost stories In an age of rapid scientific progress the idea of a vindictive past able to reach out and violate the present held a special potential for terror Throughout the nineteenth century fictional ghost stories developed in parallel with the more general Victorian fascination with death and what lay beyond it Though they were as much a part of the cultural and literary fabric of the age as imperial confidence the best of the stories still retain their original power to surprise and unsettle br In Victorian Ghost Stories the editors map out the development of the ghost story from to the early years of the twentieth century and demonstrate the importance of this form of short fiction in Victorian popular culture As well as reprinting stories by supernatural specialists such as J S Le Fanu and M R James this selection emphasizes the key role played by women writers including Elizabeth Gaskell Rhoda Broughton and Charlotte Riddell and offers one or two genuine rarities Other writers represented include Charles Dickens Henry James Wilkie Collins Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and R L Stevenson There is also a fascinating Introduction and a chronological list of ghost story collections
