Some brief overview of this book

The curse—the curse! I looked up in terror. In the great mirror opposite I saw myself, and right behind, another wicked, fearful self

An encounter with the supernatural in an everyday setting accentuates its strangeness; a truth used to eerie effect in Gaskells Gothic tales. A portrait turned to the wall, a hidden manuscript, a mysterious child that lives on the freezing moors, a doppelganger formed by a womans bitter curse: all of these things hint at male tyranny and woman as avenging angel—or devil.

Gaskell was fascinated by the dualities in womens lives and the way in which fact and fiction merge. Disappearances, a mix of gossip, legend and fact, relates stories of mysterious vanishings, Lois the Witch, based on an account of the Salem witch hunts, shows how sexual desire and jealousy lead to communal hysteria and persecution, while The Grey Woman explores a common Gothic theme, the way in which the ghosts of the past always return to haunt us.

This edition includes an introduction, chronology, explanatory notes and an appendix giving a readers response to Disappearances.

A few words about book author

Elizabeth Cleghorn Gaskell was born in London in 1810, but she spent her formative years in Cheshire, Stratford-upon-Avon and the north of England. In 1832 she married the Reverend William Gaskell, who became well known as the minister of the Unitarian Chapel in Manchester’s Cross Street. As well as leading a busy domestic life as minister’s wife and mother of four daughters, she worked among the poor, traveled frequently and wrote. Mary Barton (1848) was her first success.

Two years la angel—or devil.
