Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A painter who became a novelist, Théophile Gautier formulated the notion of “art for arts sake.” In this literary gem, the gaze is the central character as the eye of the beholder turns deadly. Paul d Aspremont, on holiday in Italy, meets his fiancée in all but name, a young English girl named Alicia Ward. What begins as an urbane and courtly affair descends into a Gothic nightmare as Paul is revealed to possess the “evil eye,” a jinx that kills all those he befriends. Novelist, poet, and critic, Théophile Gautier was a key figure in the Romantic movement in France.

Synopsis:

New translation and first single-volume edition of a neglected literary gem. Foreword by Gilbert Adair. Translated by Andrew Brown.
