Description

The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner by James Hogg
Set in Scotland at the beginning of the 18th century, the anti-hero, Robert Wringhim, commits a series of murders under the influence of a mysterious stranger. The novel is divided into three parts: a factual summary by the editor; Wringhim's confession; and finally the subsequent discovery of Wringhim's body and the shocking confessions buried with him. Hogg presents a powerful picture of evil in this controversial masterpiece of Scottish fiction.

The City of Dreadful Night by James Thomson
Written as a long poem, Thomson's dark and sombre work captures the pessimism and ultimately the horror of the city as a place of alienation, loneliness and despair. Its surrealism was well ahead of its time. Parallels can be drawn with T. S Eliot's The Wasteland and Lanark by Alasdair Gray.

A Beleaguered City by Margaret Oliphant
Set in the Bourgogne region of France, this darkly powerful Gothic fantasy recounts the events that unfold when a city is besieged by the returning dead. The citizens are driven outside their walls when the dead invade their city, reminding the people of the importance of spirituality and faith over material things.
