Cover of Italo Calvino: Fantastic Tales (ePUB)



(4.6 / 5.0 – 3 customer ratings)

From fabulous enchantments and supernatural horrors to subtler, more psychological terrors, the best of nineteenth-century fantastic literature is collected here by Italo Calvino. These mysterious and macabre tales include Hoffmann’s nightmarish ‘The Sandman’, Poe’s terrifying ‘The Tell-Tale Heart’ and Dickens’s chilling ghost story ‘The Signal-Man’, and relatively unknown works from celebrated writers including Honoré de Balzac, Henry James, Sir Walter Scott, Guy de Maupassant and Robert Louis Stevenson, alongside lesser-known contributors. Each story comes with a fascinating introduction by Calvino.
