Seven Gothic Tales - Karen Blixen, Isak Dinesen

Seven Gothic Tales - Karen Blixen, Isak Dinesen

Gothic as all get out, sure, but almost unbearably Victorian. I'm okay with the narrative voice, it's old fashioned, but interesting with nice human observation. But the speeches are each eternal, and rather preachy, and then there's the references to the peasantry as if they weren't human.
