This book explores Victorian and modernist haunted houses in female-authored ghost stories as representations of the architectural uncanny. It reconsiders the gendering of the supernatural in terms of unease, denial, disorientation, confinement and claustrophobia within domestic space. Drawing on spatial theory by Gaston Bachelard, Henri Lefebvre and Elizabeth Grosz, it analyses the reoccupation and appropriation of space by ghosts, women and servants as a means of addressing the opposition between the past and modernity. The chapters consider a range of haunted spaces, including ancestral mansions, ghostly gardens, suburban villas, Italian churches and houses subject to demolition and ruin. The ghost stories are read in the light of women’s non-fictional writing on architecture, travel, interior design, sacred space, technology, the ideal home and the servant problem. Women writers discussed include Elizabeth Gaskell, Margaret Oliphant, Vernon Lee, Edith Wharton, May Sinclair and Elizabeth Bowen. This book will appeal to students and researchers in the ghost story, Female Gothic and Victorian and modernist women’s writing, as well as general readers with an interest in the supernatural.

Fiction. Translated from the French by John Ashbery. Pierre Reverdy's short story HAUNTED HOUSE, originally published in 1930 in a collection of prose tales called Risques et Perils, is very different than his typically oblique, allusive and dreamlike poetry. Rife with mock rhetorical grandeur and ironic asides, HAUNTED HOUSE was lauded and included in Andre Breton's list of ten books he would take to a desert island. John Ashbery is the author of numerous volumes of poetry and has translated the works of Stephane Mallarme, Giorgio de Chirico, Raymond Roussel, Max Jacob and Alfred Jarry. Since 1990 he has been the Charles P. Stevenson, Jr. Professor of Languages and Literature at Bard College.

Clandestine Erotic Fiction in English 1800 1930

This work offers bibliographical descriptions of all printings of erotic fiction in English issued clandestinely during the period 1800-1930. By 'clandestine' is meant books whose publishers and printers attempt to hide their identities, usually by offering title pages whose misleading places and dates of publication may shock and amuse, but which always aim to mystify. Using internal and external evidence, an attempt is made to establish who were the printers, booksellers and publishers, English and Continental, involved in this trade. The printing families or 'groups' into which a large percentage of the material falls are classified, accompanied by illustrations which identify the main printing characteristics ('house styles') of the groups. Bibliographical descriptions follow a checklist of clandestine catalogues; these provide valuable evidence for dating, pricing and 'sales pitch' and information on items of which no copies can now be traced. The work concludes with a series of appendices which provide significant external evidence, and three indexes: of themes, titles and names. Peter Mendes' original research builds on and significantly extends the essential pioneer work of the Victorian collector and bibliographer H. S. Ashbee ('Pisanus Fraxi').

The Haunted House is a rare and obscure work of Victorian flagellant fiction. It was first published in December 1880 as the Christmas edition of the notorious Victorian clandestine periodical The Pearl: A Journal of Facetiae and Voluptuous Reading (1879-1880) and, until the release of this Birchgrove Press edition, it had not been reprinted. The Haunted House tells the tale of Dick Fenn, who inherits a fortune and a mysterious estate, which is known as "The Haunted House," in Sandyshire. With two male companions, he sets out for his newly acquired property, and the friends enjoy a number of intense erotic encounters with female inn workers on their way. From one of the girls Dick hears the story of Sir Anthony Harvey, a passionate flagellator, and later discovers that the latter's curious history is inextricably interwoven with "The Haunted House." This edition of The Haunted House, which will appeal primarily to fans of Victorian erotica (especially readers who enjoy The Pearl), includes six black and white illustrations. It also includes the tale of Vanessa, or the Story of a Milliner's Apprentice, which was first published in The Pearl, Christmas Annual 1881
