Journeys in Darkness

The Ghost Stories of
Edith Wharton (1862–1937)

“… a ghost story … must depend for its effect solely on what one might call its thermometrical quality; if it sends a cold shiver down one's spine, it has done its job and done it well.” (—Edith Wharton)

Elegantly written “literary” ghost tales, laden with psychological suspense, in a mysterious and sometimes chilling mood.


================
Edith Wharton (née Jones; January 24, 1862 – August 11, 1937) was an American novelist, short story writer, and designer. Wharton combined an insider’s view of American aristocracy with a powerful prose style; her novels and short stories realistically portrayed the lives and morals of the late nineteenth century, an era of decline and faded wealth. She won the Pulitzer Prize for Literature in 1921, the first woman to receive this honor.
