Amelia B Edwards Bibliography Chicago


    This site is being written and developed for my own Boeotian diversion and enjoyment. In my pursuit of happiness I may have infringed copyrights, but I did so without malice or intention to defraud or cause damage.
    Apart from a few exceptions, none of the photographs on this site are my own. There ought to be a credit accompanying every picture, if there isn't it is the result of an oversight or of my having lost the source. Maps and line drawings are mostly of my own making.
    Quotes should all be displayed in italics and, unless they are just a few words long, a reference given.
    As far as I can tell the US Fair Use Law protects my endeavours, but then I'm not a lawyer and laws change from country to country. Therefore:
Should you object to my using your creation, please send me an email and I'll remove it.


    Anything on this site written by me may be freely used, quoted or edited provided no commercial gain is being made. It would be nice if a reference were made to me as the author, but I'll not insist on it. Just don't claim to have written it yourself [5].


(I rather like this part, every website should have one)
    I do not have any academic degrees in Egyptology nor any affiliations with institutes of higher learning.
    No claim of scientific exactness and observance of scholarly protocols is being made. (Which doesn't mean I have not tried to get things right. But erring being human, mistakes must have crept in, and I'd be very grateful to anybody who could point them out to me.)

    I do not take upon myself any responsibility for the off-site links, over which I have no control as to their availability or their content. They are just suggestions for further reading.

Giving thanks

    I'd like to express my gratitude to all those who encouraged me with kind words, let me know when I goofed, and, above all, to those generous souls who gave me permission to use their pictures and other material on my site.

General Studies

BAINES, Paul, ed. Introduction. Five Romantic Plays, 1768-1821. Oxford and New York: Oxford University Press, 2000. vii-xlvi. Among the five plays are two Gothic dramas, Horace Walpole’s The Mysterious Mother and Joanna Baillie’s De Monfort. The other plays are Robert Southey’s Wat Tyler, Elizabeth Inchbald’s Lovers’ Vows, and Lord Byron’s TheTwo Foscari. The five plays are discussed in separate sections of the introduction which also offers “The Playhouses of London, 1768-1821,” notes on the texts, a select bibliography of secondary sources, and a chronology. Noteworthy for its inclusion of Walpole’s Mysterious Mother, the first Gothic drama. Although some of the plays are Romantic but not Gothic, this collection is a valuable anthology.

BALDICK, Chris and Robert MORRISON, eds. Tales of Terror from Blackwood’s Magazine. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 1995. The introduction emphasizes the role played by Blackwood’s in developing the Gothic short story. “The Blackwood’s authors differ markedly from the Gothicists not just in their concise scope but also in their sharper and more explicit rendering of terror . . . [T]he vague suggestions of Radcliffean Gothic give way in Blackwood’s to a greater precision of description in scenes of terror and horror, reaching an almost scientific degree of accuracy.” Contents: Patrick Fraser-Tytler, “Sketch of a Tradition Related by a Monk in Switzerland”; Walter Scott, “Narrative of a Fatal Event”; John Wilson, “Extracts from Gosschen’s Diary”; Daniel Keate Sandford, “A Night in the Catacombs”; John Galt, “The Buried Alive”; John Howison, “The Floating Beacon”; William Maginn, “The Man in the Bell:” Anonymous, “The Last Man”; Henry Thomson, “Le Revenant”; Catherine Sinclair, “The Murder Hole”; Michael Scott, “Heat and Thirst,––A Scene in Jamaica”; William Mudford, “The Iron Shroud”; James Hogg, “The Mysterious Bride”; William Godwin the Younger, “The Executioner”; Samuel Warren, “A ‘Man About Town’”; Samuel Warren, “The Spectre-Smitten”; Samuel Warren, “The Thunder-Struck and the Boxer.” Biographical notes, explanatory notes, select bibliography, chronology of Blackwood’s Magazine.

Contents: Alan Bissett, “‘The Dead Can Sing’: An Introduction”; Brian McCabe, “The Host”; Helen Lamb, “Letters from a Well-Wisher”; Toni Davidson, “Like a Pendulum in Glue”; Laura Hird, “Meat”; Ali Smith, “Gothic”; Michel Faber, “A Hole with Two Ends”; Maggie O’Farrell, “You are here”; Jackie Kay, “The Woman with Fork and Knife Disorder”; Andrew Murray Scott, “Serving the Regent”; Alison Armstrong, “Lana”; James Robertson, “Mouse”; Dilys Rose, “Mazzard’s Coop”; Magi Gibson, “Dream Lover”; Linda Cracknell, “Kiss of Life”; Sophie Cooke, “At the Time”; Chris Dolan, “The Land of Urd”; Christopher Whyte, “Stifelio”; Raymond Soltysek, “The House Outside the Kitchen”; John Burnside, “The Final Weight of all that Disappears”; Janice Galloway, “Mons Meg: A Fluid Fairy-tale.”

BROWNWORTH, Victoria A. and Judith M. REDDING, eds. Night Shade: Gothic Tales by Women. Seattle, WA: Seal Press; Distributed to the trade by Publishers Group West, 1999. The 17 short stories take place in everyday settings––contemporary houses, a bar, a veterinary hospital. Yet in this collection, the familiar is subverted. This follow-up to the anthology features stories of the supernatural, all but one of which (Wilkins-Freeman’s “Luella Miller”) are by contemporary authors. As the subtitle suggests, many of these stories have a feminist slant. One, Jean Stewart’s “Feeding the Dark,” has a strong anti-male, prolesbian theme, but this extremist view is not prevalent in most of the collection. Several selections, such as Diane DeKelb-Rittenhouse’s “Femme Coverte” and Lisa D. Williamson’s “Existential Housewife,” show the difficulties faced by women as the result of society’s restrictions and expectations. Others, like Joanne Dahme’s “Creepers” and Victoria A. Brownworth’s “Day of the Dead,” are wonderfully scary stories. Toni Brown’s “The Acolyte” gives a neat twist to the tale of Little Red Riding Hood. For the most part, this is an excellent anthology of well-written stories, many of which would appeal to readers of either sex.

CAIN, Stephen. “Introduction” (pp. 6-7). To Antipodean Tales: Stories from the Dark Side. Wellington, NZ: IPL Books. 1996. From the Introduction: “New Zealand literature has long suffered from a mysterious malady, a condition perhaps most visible in the distinct scarcity of Gothic writing published locally.

COX, Michael, ed. Introduction. Twelve Tales of the Supernatural. Oxford University Press, 1997. 3-11. The introduction (pp. vii-ix) observes of these stories: “The supernatural appears, at the moment of crisis, to be entangled with the natural; the tangible is intermixed with the intangible in a way that is utterly inexplicable.” Contents: 1. J.S. Le Fanu, “Wicked Captain Walshawe, of Wauling”; 2. Mrs. J.H. Riddell, “A Terrible Vengeance”; 3. M.R. James, “Number 13”; 4. Perceval Landon, “Railhead”; 5. W.W. Jacobs, “The Toll House”; 6.

CROW, Charles, ed. Introduction. American Gothic: An Anthology, 1787-1916. Malden, MA: Blackwell Publishers, 1999. 1-2. This anthology is timely and well-selected. As the short introduction states: in America, the Gothic “has been used by talented artists to explore serious issues. . . . American writers understood, quite early, that the Gothic offered a way to explore areas otherwise denied them. The Gothic is a literature of opposition.” Contents: “Abraham Panther”; “An Account of a Beautiful Young Lady”; Charles Brockden Brown, “Somnambulism”; Washington Irving, “Rip Van Winkle”; John Neal, “Idiosyncrasies”; George Lippard, from The Quaker City; or, The Monks of Monk Hall; Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, “The Skeleton in Armor”; James Fenimore Cooper, from The Prairie; Henry Clay Lewis, “A Struggle for Life”; Edgar Allan Poe, “Hop-Frog”; “The Cask of Amontillado”; “The Facts in the Case of M.

TROTT, Nicola, ed. Gothic Novels: An Anthology. Oxford: Blackwell Publishers, 1997. Nine hundred pages of Gothic fiction supplemented by reviews, headnotes and introductions.

Since the anthology is designed for undergraduate courses, the omission of Lewis’s Monk (or at least excerpts from it) is a marked flaw.

Door, “Victorians.” From Kirkus Reviews, August 15, 1997: “Anthology of nineteen new ghostly tales, although few whomp up any sort of Gothic atmosphere or induce shivers. The more effective tales: Brian Stableford’s ‘Seers,’ about an old woman imprisoned by the ghosts she sees even though they can’t physically affect her; ‘Unexpected Attraction,’ a rather waggish tale of a duped lover gaining his revenge upon a conniving ghost; and the one genuinely haunting piece here, Russell J. Handelman’s ‘And the City Unfamiliar,’ about the motives and perceptions of a ghost who, pathetically, doesn’t realize that he is a ghost. Elsewhere the offerings are more or less standard.
