9781871438307: The Midnight Bell

Francis Lathom (1777-1832) was a dramatist and novelist who is best known today for his Gothic novels. These are works that have no literary pretences at all and were intended purely as entertainment. Still, they are valuable for the light they shed on the Zeitgeist, for the reading tastes of the time in which they appeared. The Midnight Bell has all the well-known features of the Gothic - its gloom, portents, tendency toward morbidity, and the theme of power of one person over another.
