About the Author
Vernon Lee was the pseudonym of the British writer Violet Paget (1856 - 1935). She is remembered today primarily for her supernatural fiction and her work on aesthetics. An early follower of Walter Pater, she wrote over a dozen volumes of essays on art, music and travel. The English writer and translator Montague Summers described Vernon Lee as the greatest [...] of modern exponents of the supernatural in fiction. E. F. Bleiler has claimed that Lee's stories are really in a category by themselves. Intelligent, amusingly ironic, imaginative, original, they deserve more than the passing attention that they have attracted. Neil Barron described the contents of Lee's collection Hauntings thus The stories are powerful and very striking, among the finest of their kind.
