The Broadview edition brings together both of Walpole s formative works of gothic literature from the late 18th century Both are fairly quick reads For the modern reader, Walpole s stories may seem a bit trite as his imagery, plots and characters have frequently appeared throughout gothic genre in the years since Walpole s works were originally published However, as the origins of gothic literature, both are interesting for anyone interested in the gothic movement.

It was lovely to revisit Otranto after I had so much familiarity with the Gothic The Mysterious Mother was a fascinating play much traditional than I had expected, really Glad I read this, though I wasn t entirely impressed by Frank s scholarly apparatus.

Not having read the reviews for this one, I m willing to bet that most people like me have only read it as part of a class on Gothic literature Walpole s book is considered the first Gothic novel and is the first to describe itself as such , and is responsible for introducing many of the themes of sublime horror and melodrama that have come to signify the genre.As a student of the Gothic, my reading of the novel served its purpose But I can t say I enjoyed it much.

Review is only for The Mysterious Mother 4 stars for a brief, but chilling play that is never slow paced and has a fantastic ending.
