9780976721222: The Haunted Priory; or, The Fortunes of the House of Rayo

Stephen Cullen's The Haunted Priory; or, The Fortunes of the House of Rayo was first published in 1794, the same year Ann Radcliffe's The Mysteries of Udolpho. One of the first Gothic novels set in medieval Spain, it recounts the fall of the House of Rayo during the politically dangerous period of Peter the Cruel. Alphonso, son of Don Isidor, nephew of Baron de Rayo, is led to a ruinous chapel by a cowled spectre where he begins to unearth the mysteries surrounding his family. Skilled at utilizing familiar Gothic conventions, Cullen proves a master of Gothic horror in this early example of the historical Gothic. This new edition of The Haunted Priory includes the nineteenth century chapbook version of the novel, notes on the text and chapbook as well as contextual information on the Gothic novel in the late 18th century.
