Description:

ISBN: 1-901866-79-3 No wear. Quite clean. 'The eleven stories incarnate shadow worlds where the past and present interpenetrate, where common life is touched by deeper, less pleasant purposes. They are set variously in Ireland, Scotland and England, and are permeated by a powerful sense of place: thy empty moor, the garden at the edge of the wild, the abandoned railway, the enclosed privacy of an ancient college. Absorbing, haunting narratives, they are related with the skill and precision of a master storyteller.' 213 pages. Bookseller Inventory #

Synopsis: These tales of twilight and borderlands depart from an oral tradition developed through the writings of Beckford, Mary Shelley, Le Fanu, and M.R. James. They are concerned with the life of the mind and imagination, fear and the supernatural, and they attest to the demands of the unconscious in the twenty-first century. The eleven stories incarnate shadow worlds where the past and present interpenetrate, where common life is touched by deeper, less pleasant purposes. They are set variously in Ireland, Scotland and England, and are permeated by a powerful sense of place: the empty moor, the garden at the edge of the wild, the abandoned railway, the enclosed privacy of an ancient college. Absorbing, haunting narratives, they are related with the skill and precision of a master storyteller. John Gaskin is a Fellow of Trinity College, Dublin. ""John Gaskin's stories are genuinely unsettling, and the reader leaves the collection with a pervasive sense of something other, of forces existing on the periphery of our reality.""-Times Literary Supplement

About the Author: JOHN GASKIN is an Oxford undergraduate and Fellow of Trinity College, Dublin, where he was sometime Junior Dean and Professor of Philosophy. Antiquary, family man, gardener, hill-walker and versifier, his writings on religion, the Epicureans, and the great sceptic David Hume, are internationally known. He lives in England.

Book Description The Lilliput Press Ltd, Ireland, 2004. Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. These tales of twilight and borderlands depart from an oral tradition (written to be read aloud at small gatherings or on the radio) developed through the eighteenth and nineteenth-century writings of William Beckford, Mary Shelley, Sheridan Le Fanu, M.R James and others, and now skillfully realized by John Gaskin. They describe the life of the mind and imagination, fear and the supernatural, and attest to the perrenial need for and recognition of the unconscious in the twenty-first century. The twelve original stories range from the murderous to the macabre, and the whimsical to the worrying. Written in the classical mould of ghost stories, they occupy shadow worlds where the past and present interpenetrate, describing the common world touched by deeper, less pleasant purposes. They are set variously in Ireland, Scotland and England, and are permeated by a powerful sense of place: the empty moor, the garden at the edge of the wild, the abandoned railway, the enclosed privacy of an ancient college. Absorbing, haunting narratives, they are related with the skill and precision of a master story-teller. Seller Inventory # AAO9781901866797
