Book description
Collin de Plancy's predilection for the irrational, the harrowing, and the pathetic gives him a singular place in the genesis of one element of Romanticism. Published in the 19th century, this dictionary became somewhat of a standard reference book for countless Romantic writers (notably, Victor Hugo) who dwelt in their work on the darker sides of human nature. It is a compendium of fact and fancy, with the emphasis on legend. Much of the material contained in the dictionary was the source of the peculiar literary genre known as "Gothic tale," a style of narrative that is by no means lacking in popularity today.
