Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The White People and Other Weird Stories (Penguin Modern Classics) (Paperback)
I found the writing dense and very obscure. Normally I enjoy Victorian Gothic writing but this author is probably one of the worst examples of the genre that I have read. Having said that, the ideas behind the stories were innovative and peculiar to the time and mood of the Victorians, so - for Victorian scholars - it is a 'must have' acquisition.

I suppose each to their own, Arthur Machen is one of my all time favourite authors whose work I love.
