J Sheridan Le Fanu


Ireland (1814 - 1873)
Uncle of Rhoda Broughton

Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu has been the inspiration and motive force behind a great deal of modern horror literature; his tales of horror inspired Bram Stoker to write Dracula; it was the custom, according to Henry James, for Victorian hosts to place a volume of his stories on a guest's bedside table for 'the hours after midnight'; and M R James, the famous ghost story teller, considered him 'absolutely in the front rank' as a supernatural writer. Yet in modern times Le Fanu has been unaccountably ignored.
