One thought on “In a Glass Darkly (Oxford World’s Classics)

  1. Son cinco historias escritas por Le Fanu, de las que destaca CARMILLA, en mi opini n IN A GLASS DARKLY es un libro entretenido y merece la pena leerlo SIN EMBARGO, hay que tener una cosa en cuenta la satisfacci n que vamos a tener de este libro depende de qu otras obras de este mismo g nero hemos le do antes Y si entre ellos est n obras como THE MONK, FRANKENSTEIN, MELMOTH THE WANDERER, y del g nero g tico femenino , como se denominan las novelas de Radcliffe, como THE MYSTERIES OF UDOLPHO y THE [...]
