Pequena biografia
Edward Bulwer changed his surname to Bulwer-Lytton in 1844 at the request of his mother, and was created first Baron Lytton in 1866. He was a popular writer who coined several phrases that would go on to become clichés, including the opening line to his 1830 novel Paul Clifford, "It was a dark and stormy night." His name lives on in the annual Bulwer-Lytton Fiction Contest, in which the contestants craft bad openings for imaginary novels.

This is a very effective short ghost story about a haunted house in the middle of London, the typical place where no tenant has served out their term and all quitted after a day or two. The author builds up an atmosphere of thick horror and oppression very well within a few pages - "I felt as if some strange and ghastly exhalation were rising up from the chinks of that rugged floor, and filling the atmosphere with a venomous influence hostile to human life". The narrator is determined to find the true rational explanation for the hauntings as he refuses to believe in the supernatural and, in the end, he does identify the source, but it is based on a Medieval monkish curse. A gripping piece of writing.… (mais)
