Seven Masters of Supernatural Fiction PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Seven Masters of Supernatural Fiction free pdf An unusual grouping of mainly British writers, this study includes some, like Henry James, who are indisputably leaders of the "canon" regardless of genre, and others, like Algernon Blackwood, who wrote almost exclusively in the supernatural- all, however, were clearly masters of this genre. The seven chapters on the individual writers each examine plot, character, mood and setting in a traditional sense, sparked by personal observations and comparisons. Each study is preceded by a biographical sketch and documented by comprehensive bibliographies and notes. In the case of the less studied writers, like M.R. James and Arthur Machen, these chapters may be the fullest accounts ever published.
