Halloween Bingo - Gothic

The Castle of Otranto - Horace Walpole

I started The Castle of Otranto this morning as my current audiobook for the commute to work. 


I'm only a few minutes in, and I get the impression that I could not have picked a book that is more Gothic than this one. There have already been ample "in vains", trembling ladies, manly pursuits, " 'tis", "thou", a castle, fearful ladies, terrible aristocrats, poor peasants, necromancy, a tomb, and what appears to be a version of the Black Knight.


...oh, and there has also been a mysterious death by helmet.
