The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole

The Castle of Otranto

RRP £13.56

The Good Book Guide logo The Good Book Guide Review. Walpole’s novel was first published in 1764, disguised as a translation from an imaginary Italian novel. When the 13th-century Prince Manfred unjustly claims the Otranto throne, a ghostly gigantic figure opposes him. After many vicissitudes and much sudden death, the throne and the disputed maiden Isabella, go to her lover, the rightful heir.


The Castle of Otranto by Horace Walpole

A story of love and betrayal, the count Manfred seeks to marry his brother's widow Isabella who shows little interest in the new king. Manfred tries to persuade her to come out of the church she has taken refuge in when a mysterious army with strange interest in the marriage issue invades Manfred's realm. Who are these strange knights, and who is this Theodore that seeks to protect Isabella within the place she has taken sanctuary?
