READ & DOWNLOAD ´ Ghost Stories of an Antiuary A curious series of events which happened in such a house as I have tried to describe It is Castringham Hall in Suffolk I think a good deal has been done to the building since the period of my story but the essential features I have sketched are still there Italian portico suare block of white house older inside than out park with fringe of woods and mere The one feature that marked out the house from a score of others is gone As you looked at it from the park you. My first encounter with the ghost stories of genre master Montague Rhodes James 1862 1936 was as a kid of about 11 reading Alfred Hitchcock Presents Stories for Late at Night my review of that one is here which contained The Ash Tree That tale stayed with me remarkably well over the decades and it and William Hope Hodgson s The Whistling Room which appears in the same anthology were probably the two stories that than any others gave me my enduring taste for the supernatural in literature Over the years I d read several of James works but none of his book length collections though I d long wanted to A common read this month in one of my groups of this the first collection he published in 1904 gave me that opportunityOf the eight stories in this book I d previously read three others besides The Ash Tree Lost Hearts which appears in Great Ghost Stories 101 Terrifying Tales my review of that book is here The Mezzotint and Oh Whistle and I ll Come to You My Lad which is included in Charles Keeping s Classic Tales of the Macabre I ve commented on the M R James stories in both of the reviews I ve linked to Contrary to my usual practice however after reading the new to me stories here I reread three of the previously read ones skipping Lost Hearts because I d read it just earlier this yearJames day job was as a Univ of Cambridge scholar of medieval and ancient literature and he s still respected in that field As the title of the collection puts it he was an antiuary by profession and that background characteristically flavors his stories Old documents which are connected to and sometimes even a channel for sinister occult mysteries better left unplumbed are very often worked into the warp and woof of his plots and spooky goings on in the time frame of the story are often rooted in a musty past history that s shown to be very far from dead and irrelevant His protagonists are freuently university professors and often antiuaries themselves He also has a tendency to describe events that even after the denouement are not wholly explained how or why something worked the way it did is still mysterious and impenetrable A recurrent theme is the inadeuacy of rationalist materialism to explain all of reality characters comfortably cocooned in such a worldview invariably have it rudely shaken The author himself was a theologically conservative Anglican who was open to the possibility of the paranormal in real life Asked in later life whether he believed in ghosts he replied They exist but we don t know the rulesMalevolence on the part of his supernatural entities was something he considered essential to the ghost story though their malevolence may not be universal they may be out for vengeance on a particular person or persons and in at least one case here we might agree that it s justified So the stories are horrific in nature but the horror element doesn t depend on gore and gross out All of the tales are in the classic tradition with restraint in the descriptions and a greater emphasis on psychological rather than physical horror Plots are structured in a way that builds ominous unease in the reader though the protagonists are often oblivious leading with mounting suspense to a denouementThe four stories that were new to me here are Canon Alberic s Scrap Book Number 13 Count Magnus and The Treasure of Abbot Thomas There weren t any of the stories that I didn t like and it s difficult to pick a favorite Lost Hearts perhaps diverges the most from James usual style in that the antiuarian element while present isn t as strong as it usually is and the story has a child protagonist The physical manifestation of the supernatural near the end is also gorier than in some James stories but still understated described in one sentence and mild by modern standards The Ash Tree is set against the background of the witch hysteria of the 16th and 17th centuries and suggests as do some other supernatural fiction story authors like Manly Wade Wellman that not ALL of those executed as witches were necessarily slandered innocents Both Number 13 and Count Magnus have well evoked Scandinavian settings I couldn t find a specific confirmation of travels by the author in Scandinavia but he definitely traveled in Europe a lot and the descriptions here suggest direct personal experience As we might infer from the title The Treasure of Abbot Thomas deals with a uest for hidden treasure but it might be better if it isn t foundE F Bleiler who was in his day one of very few literary scholars to actually appreciate and specialize in supernatural fiction contributed an excellent though short four pages Introduction to the 1965 Dover edition which is the one I read He acuainted me with a good deal of information about
