Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: Widely regarded as the founder of the modern conservative movement, Russell Kirk was a noted man of letters whose prodigious literary output included a syndicated newspaper column, a regular page in "National Review," and many books. This volume demonstrates another compelling side of Kirk -- the imaginative author who could communicate his powerful vision through the dramatic genre of the ghost story."Ancestral Shadows" collects nineteen of Kirkbs best ghostly tales from periodicals and anthologies published throughout his life. In the tradition of Defoe, Stevenson, Hawthorne, Coleridge, Poe, and other master writers, these frightful stories conjure the creaks and shadows of the very places where they came to life through Kirkbs pen: haunted St. Andrews, the Isle of Eigg, Kellie Castle, Balcarres House, Durie House (bwhich has the most persistent of all country-house spectresb), and Kirkbs own ancestral spooky house in Mecosta, Michigan.Full of fantastic gothic tales masterfully told, the volume ends,with bA Cautionary Note on the Ghostly Tale, b an incisive piece in which Kirk reflects on why he writes such stories: bexperiments in the moral imaginationb are what he is really after. Ghost stories are not merely entertaining but possess a particular ability to capture the essential features of human nature, of good and evil. bAll important literature has some ethical end, b Kirk says, band the tale of the preternatural -- as written by George Macdonald, C. S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and other masters -- can be an instrument for the recovery of moral order.bIncluding an illuminative introduction by Vigen Guroian, "Ancestral Shadows" will enthrall and delight all lovers ofghost stories.

Inhaltsangabe: Widely regarded as the founder of the modern conservative movement, Russell Kirk was a noted man of letters whose prodigious literary career included a syndicated newspaper column and a regular page in "National Review." This volume demonstrates another compelling side of Kirk -- the imaginative author who could communicate his powerful vision through even the most dramatic of genres, the ghost story.

"Ancestral Shadows" gathers together nineteen of Kirkbs best ghostly tales from periodicals and anthologies published throughout his life. Penned in the tradition of writers like Defoe, Stevenson, Hawthorne, Coleridge, James, and Poe, these frightful stories conjurer the creeks and shadows of the very places where they came to life: haunted St. Andrews, the Isle of Eigg, Kellie Castle, Balcarres House, Durie House (which has the most persistent of all country-house specters), and Kirkbs own ancestral spooky house in Mecosta, Michigan.

The volume also includes an important concluding reflection on the writing of these and all tales of the supernatural. Ghost stories at not merely entertaining but possess a particular ability to capture the essential features of human nature, of good and evil, and of the reality of the permanent things. As Kirk notes: bThe tale of the preternatural -- as written by George Macdonald, C. S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and other masters -- can be an instrument for the recovery of moral order.b

Masterfully crafted, "Ancestral Shadows" will delight all lovers of ghost stories.

Inhaltsangabe: Foreword by Vigen Guroian

Widely regarded as the founder of the modern conservative movement, Russell Kirk was a noted man of letters whose prodigious literary career included a syndicated newspaper column and a regular page in National Review. This volume demonstrates another compelling side of Kirk ? the imaginative author who could communicate his powerful vision through the dramatic genre of the ghost story.

Ancestral Shadows collects nineteen of Kirk's best ghostly tales from periodicals and anthologies published throughout his life. In the tradition of Defoe, Stevenson, Hawthorne, Coleridge, Poe, and other master writers, these frightful stories conjure the creaks and shadows of the very places where they came to life through Kirk's pen: haunted St. Andrews, the Isle of Eigg, Kellie Castle, Balcarres House, Durie House ("which has the most persistent of all country-house specters"), and Kirk's own ancestral spooky house in Mecosta, Michigan.

The volume ends with "A Cautionary Note on the Ghostly Tale," an incisive piece in which Kirk reflects on why he writes such stories." All important literature has some ethical end," Kirk says, "and the tale of the preternatural ? as written by George Macdonald, C. S. Lewis, Charles Williams, and other masters ? can be an instrument for the recovery of moral order."

Masterfully crafted, Kirk's Ancestral Shadows will enthrall and delight all lovers of ghost stories.
