"From 1765 to 1840, Gothic tales held Britain and much of Europe in thrall. Readers found retreat from drab reality in ruined abbeys, Moonlit castles, pathless woods and blasted heaths – people by knightly heroes, oppressed maidens and wicked tyrants; haunted by ghosts, spectres, vampires animated corpses and grinning skulls." -- from the rear panel blurb.
