    The Gothic novel, with its dark tales of tragedy, romance and ancient villainies, tinged with horror and the supernatural, became the vogue in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Three of the finest examples are collected here, including The Castle of Otranto by Walpole, widely considered the first true Gothic romance.
