First published pseudonymously in 1764, 'The Castle of Otranto' purported to be a translation of an Italian story of the time of the crusades. Walpole gives us a series of catastrophes, ghostly interventions, revelations of identity, and exciting contexts. Emma Clery's new introduction and notes make this the definitive edition.
