This book was released on 2017-04-11 with total page 204 pages. Book excerpt: Ghost stories have played a prominent role in childhood. Circulated around playgrounds and whispered in slumber parties, their history in American literature is little known and seldom discussed by scholars. This book explores the fascinating origins and development of these tales, focusing on the social and historical factors that shaped them and gave birth to the genre. Ghost stories have existed for centuries but have been published specifically for children for only about 200 years. Early on, supernatural ghost stories were rare--authors and publishers, fearing they might adversely affect young minds, presented stories in which the ghost was always revealed as a fraud. These tales dominated children's publishing in the 19th century but the 20th century saw a change in perspective and the supernatural ghost story flourished.

Book excerpt: The ghost story 1840-1920: A cultural history examines the British ghost story within the political contexts of the long nineteenth century. By relating the ghost story to economic, national, colonial and gendered contexts' it provides a critical re-evaluation of the period. The conjuring of a political discourse of spectrality during the nineteenth century enables a culturally sensitive reconsideration of the work of writers including Dickens, Collins, Charlotte Riddell, Vernon Lee, May Sinclair, Kipling, Le Fanu, Henry James and M.R. James. Additionally, a chapter on the interpretation of spirit messages reveals how issues relating to textual analysis were implicated within a language of the spectral. This book is the first full-length study of the British ghost story in over 30 years and it will be of interest to academics, graduate students and advanced undergraduates working on the Gothic, literary studies, historical studies, critical theory and cultural studies.

Book excerpt: Welcome to the 3 Books To Know series, our idea is to help readers learn about fascinating topics through three essential and relevant books. These carefully selected works can be fiction, non-fiction, historical documents or even biographies. We will always select for you three great works to instigate your mind, this time the topic is: Ghost Stories. - 7 Best Short Stories Of Ghost, edited by August Nemo - A Phantom Lover by Vernon Lee - The Uninhabited House by Charlotte Riddell A ghost story may be any piece of fiction, or drama, that includes a ghost, or simply takes as a premise the possibility of ghosts or characters' belief in them.The "ghost" may appear of its own accord or be summoned by magic. Linked to the ghost is the idea of "hauntings", where a supernatural entity is tied to a place, object or person. In 7 Best Short Stories of Ghost the critic August Nemo selected seven tales that perfectly illustrate this concept. A Phantom Lover has been compared to The Turn of the Screw by Henry James, in that there is a question about whether the ghost of the story was merely a figment of the imagination of two of the characters. In An Uninhabited House, the hauntings are seen through the perspective of the solicitors who hold the deed of the property. Slowly the safer world of commerce and law gives way as the encounter with the supernatural entity becomes more and more unavoidable. This is one of many books in the series 3 Books To Know. If you liked this book, look for the other titles in the series, we are sure you will like some of the topic.

This book was released on 2022-11-22 with total page 271 pages. Book excerpt: Carolyn Wells's The Technique of the Mystery Story gets to the heart of a craft she defined despite coming to it late in her career. Wells offers a valuable framework for writers looking to follow in her footsteps or readers looking for access to the mind and process of a woman revered in her field, exploring the history of the genre, defining its many different forms, and illuminating the stylistic choices that keep a mystery tale running smoothly. This work begins with an argument for mystery as a legitimate literary art form, supported by numerous quotations from authorities. Then, moving through her topics in a systematic manner, she explains and illustrates the mystery-writing craft with excerpts from mystery works and quotations from literary critics and notable authors. This is essentially a mini-course in mystery story creative writing.
