    The Broadview edition brings together both of Walpole's formative works of gothic literature from the late 18th century. Both are fairly quick reads. For the modern reader, Walpole's stories may seem a bit trite as his imagery, plots and characters have frequently appeared throughout gothic genre in the years since Walpole's works were originally published. However, as the origins of gothic literature, both are interesting for anyone interested in the gothic movement.

    It was lovely to revisit Otranto after I had so much more familiarity with the Gothic! The Mysterious Mother was a fascinating play -- much more traditional than I had expected, really. Glad I read this, though I wasn't entirely impressed by Frank's scholarly apparatus.

    Not having read the reviews for this one, I'm willing to bet that most people (like me) have only read it as part of a class on Gothic literature. Walpole's book is considered the first Gothic novel (and is the first to describe itself as such), and is responsible for introducing many of the themes of sublime horror and melodrama that have come to signify the genre.As a student of the Gothic, my reading of the novel served its purpose. But I can't say I enjoyed it much.

    What fun! This is an excellent edition, would that all editions for scholars were so well put together. Franks edifys without stultifying. Oh crap now I have to read something more mundane so my language returns to normal. Enjoy!!

    Review is only for "The Mysterious Mother" - 4 stars for a brief, but chilling play that is never slow-paced and has a fantastic ending.

    Hope
    A fast read, my copy was only 92 pages. Great Gothic devices. Enjoyed the imagery.
