Description
Richly atmospheric, this posthumous 1906 collection by the expatriate Greek-Irish writer features supernatural tales rooted in ancient Chinese legends. Unlike the ghosts of Western lore, most Chinese spirits are heroic figures who return to the living to be remembered for their sacrifices. Lafcadio Hearn, who acquired Japanese citizenship and became an expert in Oriental lore, was praised by the New York Times for his "rare skill" and "gorgeousness of description"; the originality, power, and literary charm of these stories still captivate.
