Reading Experience:

?Walpole?s Catle of Otranto, though dramatized by Jephson, has few imitations. Clara Reeve?s English Baron was the best, but even she in vain beckoned authors to cross the magic threshold of Gothic romance. They paused on the verge, gazed with wistful romance, and forbore to enter its mysterious precincts.?
