Beschreibung:

Thomas Bailey sighs over a portrait of his adored Ethelinda Tit, but he faces an insurmountable obstacle to his passion: Ethelinda died two hundred years ago! Yet things appear to be looking up for Thomas when he meets young Miss Annabella Tit, Ethelinda's descendant. But a sinister Armenian merchant has other plans, denouncing Thomas to a secret tribunal and kidnapping Annabella to a den of robbers. And that's just the beginning. In a surreal and hilarious series of adventures, Thomas will find himself drowned, hanged, and captured by Napoleon, while Annabella is repeatedly imprisoned, escaping with the aid of a talking frog and perhaps the strangest disguise in all of fiction.
Love and Horror (1812) is a bizarre and comical pastiche of the Gothic novel in vogue at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Long forgotten and out of print since 1815, this new edition restores this delightful book to its rightful place alongside other more famous parodies of the Gothic novel, such as Barrett's The Heroine, Austen's Northanger Abbey, and Peacock's Nightmare Abbey. This edition features a new introduction and notes by Natalie Neill.
