Product Information

  • First published pseudonymously in 1764, The Castle of Otranto purported to be a translation of an Italian story of the time of the crusades.
  • In it Walpole attempted, 'to blend the two kinds of romance: the ancient and the modern'.
  • He gives us a series of catastrophes, ghostly interventions, revelations of identity, and exciting contests.
  • Crammed with invention, entertainment, terror and pathos, the novel was an immediate success and Walpole's own favourite among his numerous works.
