Quarta di copertina


A Thin Ghost and Others A Thin Ghost and Others is M. R. James' third collection of ghost stories, published in 1919. Contents The Residence at Whitminster The Diary of Mr. Poynter An Episode of Cathedral History The Story of a Disappearance and an Appearance Two Doctors M. R.James Montague Rhodes James (1 August 1862 – 12 June 1936), who used the publication name M. R. James, was an English author, medievalist scholar and provost of King's College, Cambridge (1905–18), and of Eton College (1918–36). Though James's work as a medievalist is still highly regarded, he is best remembered for his ghost stories, which are regarded as among the best in the genre. James redefined the ghost story for the new century by abandoning many of the formal Gothic clichés of his predecessors and using more realistic contemporary settings. However, James's protagonists and plots tend to reflect his own antiquarian interests. Accordingly, he is known as the originator of the "antiquarian ghost story".
