Abstract:

The Best of Gothic Horror is a compilation that includes some of the most famous gothic-horror writing in history.

The Edgar Allen Poe collection : This collection of Poe stories includes the Descent into the malestrom, Ligeia, Selected poems, The masque of the red death, The tell tale heart, The black cat, The cask of amantillado, The facts in the case of M. Valdemar, The fall of the House of Usher, The oval portrait.

Frankenstein : A monster is born by the hands of Dr. Frankenstein in Mary Shelly's gothic masterpiece. The tale of the monster's distress, and the mayhem that results from it, is the crux of this dark and engrossing story. Written when she was barely twenty years old, Shelly's shocking novel inspires both fear and sorrow which continues to engage and move over a century later.

Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde : Robert Louis Stevenson wrote The strange case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in three days of mad writing. His wife found it so horrific that he burned the manuscript. In another three days, he wrote it all again. The story is about a wealthy doctor and scientist named Dr. Jekyll who unleashes the dark monster within himself by drinking a potion that he developed. More than just a great horror novel, this classic delves into the very nature of human morality.
