Acerca de Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu
escritor irlandés de cuentos y novelas de misterio. Sus historias de fantasmas representan uno de los primeros ejemplos del género de horror en su forma moderna, en la cual, como en su relato Schalken el pintor, no siempre triunfa la virtud ni se ofrece una explicación sencilla de los fenómenos sobrenaturales.
