Vessela Lutskanova

In a Glass Darkly

Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu

This remarkable collection of stories, first published in 1872, includes 'Green Tea', 'The Familiar', 'Mr. Justice Harbottle', 'The Room in the Dragon Volant', and 'Carmilla'. The five stories are purported to be cases by Dr. Hesselius, a 'metaphysical' doctor, who is willing to consider ghosts both as real and as hallucinatory obsessions. The reader's doubtful anxiety mimics that of the protagonist, and each story thus creates that atmosphere of mystery which is the supernatural experience.
