SEVEN GOTHIC TALES is a collection of seven short stories. They include "The Deluge at Norderney," "The Old Chevalier," "The Monkey" and "The Roads Round Pisa." Rounding out the collection are "The Supper at Elsinore," "The Dreamers" and "The Poet."
"Isak Dinesen is one of the great storytellers of the 20th century, best known for her classic OUT OF AFRICA. But SEVEN GOTHIC TALES is as good. It is a modern classic...a book of extraordinary fantasy that yet takes us intimately into a vivid variety of human lives." (The Saturday Review of Literature)
"Whatever it is that Isak Dinesen does in her tales, she does it marvelously well. It is a strange art, bold and perilous." (Commonweal)

11 1.5-hour cassettesFrom the Inside Flap:
Originally published in 1934, Seven Gothic Tales, the first book by "one of the finest and most singular artists of our time" (The Atlantic), is a modern classic. Here are seven exquisite tales combining the keen psychological insight characteristic of the modern short story with the haunting mystery of the nineteenth-century Gothic tale, in the tradition of writers such as Goethe, Hoffmann, and Poe.
