An Apt Title.
on 15 June 2007
Whatever the merits of Le Fanu's collection of short stories, the Wordsworth edition is dismal.
The typesetting errors are so frequent that it was only after some investigation that I began to believe that mine is not a bootlegged copy. The most common faults are wandering sem;i-colons, and all exclamation marks replaced with a space followed by a personal pronoun I this can cause confusion when placed in the middle of a sentence, as Le Fanu's old prose does not include capital letters following an exclamation mark.
Undoubtedly cheap, but only really worth it as an excercise in deciphering.
