Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814-1873) is regarded by many critics as the greatest master of the English ghost story. A product of the decaying Anglo-Irish culture of the early and mid-19th Century, he sums up in his work better than any of his contemporaries the fears and dreads that may haunt the sensitive individual.

Producer: Lawrence Jackson
