Igino Ugo Tarchetti (1839-69) abandoned his military career to seek his fortune in literature. He wrote articles for diverse newspapers, some poems, several novels and became famous with his masterpiece Fosca.Review:
"Tarchetti (1839-1869) has been called an Italian Edgar Allan Poe, and in these nine exceptionally well-translated tales he does indeed share Poe's fascination with the gothic ... While the stories are marvelous in and of themselves, in Venuti's thoughtful presentation they serve as entree into an equally strange and marvelous literary phenomenon." --"Publishers Weekly" on "Fantastic Tales"
