"A Chapter in the History of the Tyrone Family" is a Gothic short story by Sheridan Le Fanu focusing on a young woman who marries a Scottish landowner with a dark past. A short story whose haunting and semi-supernatural elements might have influenced Charlotte Brontë’s "Jane Eyre", Le Fanu’s tale combines a lot of elements – horror, romance, thriller, and drama – to create a compelling and sophisticated world from which there is no easy escape. All this, together with the countless secrets, murders, and betrayal turn the short story into a melodramatic Gothic classic, recommended to fans of the genre.
