    What distinguishes Freeman's ghost stories for me is that they're so psychologically acute The byplay between characters and what they are unwilling to come out and say is really sharp and beautifully observed She also knows how to make a story damn creepy


  2. says:

    These stories have held up well unlike many stories from this era the prose isn't unnecessarily filled with flowery metaphor The author can write a pretty sentence but she uses this ability sparingly in a straight forward manner which allows the stories to flow easily I wasn't burdened by the language her style is reminescent of Mark Twain though she lacks his humorous wit

    I really liked this collection of stories they're told with a folksy charm and humor at times yet almost seem to disarm with a naivete and innocence before delivering a few genuine chills The stories almost always focus on old spinsters sewing away by the firesideThe title story is one of the best funny at times and fast paced It's about an aunt travels to a small town to fetch her niece from her stepmother but when she arrives the girl is no where to be found The stepmother assures her not to worry that the niece will show up soon but weird little events and the girls continued absence convince her there’s something wrongThe Shadows on the Wall is a mild little ghost story but has a neat ending I didn’t see coming Three sisters discuss their brother’s death and dare not say aloud their suspicions of their other brother having murdered him But when the dead brother’s shadow comes to haunt a room in their house it starts to bring everything out into the openLuella Miller is a story I liked because it's not a typical ghost story and has a fairly original theme to it which falls into the weird category The horror here mixes a naivete with a menace that's uite well done A woman recounts the history of Luella Miller a long dead woman who used up everyone that came into contact with her all of them wasted away while working to make her life one of easeThe Southwest Chamber is a great example of the early American charm in this collection This is another good story somewhat standard ghost story fare but with enough creepy little original ideas to make it worth a read Two old women attempt to rent out a room where their aunt died and discover that her spirit doesn't wish to be disturbed and is willing to terrorize anyone who tries to stay thereThe Vacant Lot is one of the less coherent stories but not necessarily less interesting even if the various elements don't exactly come together as well as in the others I found the obstinate skeptical husband in it to be a pretty humorous touch myself A family moves to the city after getting a great deal on a house there but soon discovers why the vacant lot next door is haunted by all sorts of inexplicable phenomenaThe Lost Ghost is enjoyable if nothing special A sort of cozy ghost tale The final ghostly image of the story is pretty memorable A woman living in a house with two old sisters and the sad ghost of a little girl there who is looking for motherly love

    I'd got it into my head that this was a real humdinger of a collection of ghost stories someone must have recommended it to me at some stage and so I was looking forward to it very much Alas I was disappointed I see uite a few GoodReaders disagree with me so There are six stories here five of them ghost stories and the other a tale of a psychic vampire; at least a couple of the stories the title story than once have been adapted for TV I found them all a bit limp and inconseuential except the last in the book The Lost Ghost which while rather cumbersomely told has a definite atmosphere of pathos that appealed to me It has too a satisfying resolution whereas all of the others just well stopWhat do I mean by that? Well take The Southwest Chamber Two spinster sisters have inherited the family home and decided to turn it into a boarding house They leave it 'til last to rent the southwest facing room because that's where old Aunt Harriet died In due course each of the boarding house's incumbents gives the room a try but can't stand it for than one night because of drum roll please Spectral Manifestations So the sisters decide they'll sell the house instead And er that's itLuella Miller the tale of the psychic vampire someone who sucks not the blood but perhaps unconsciously the élan vital out of those around them is of passing interest purely because it is about a psychic vampire; I'm not very knowledgeable about supernatural tales but I think this is one of the earliest examples to tackle this theme But Freeman doesn't really do anything with it just recounts the fates of the people who tried to live with the eponymous LuellaAs I say other readers have clearly enjoyed this collection a lot than I did and the New England settings and narrative style are I'm sure an added bonus for some For me though I found the whole affair a tad dull while my spine remained resolutely unchilled

    I don't know why I haven't heard of Mary Eleanor Wilkins Freemen before as I am a fan of Victorian supernatural short stories These rival the best of that genre but approach the characters from a freshly female point of view The characters are handled sensitively and are well drawn and realistic Most of the drama is centred around the home The voices are in keeping with East Coast American in the Victorian period Those familiar with Little Women will notice the use of ain't being used by the middle class characters as was perfectly proper at that time The period details such as items of clothing or domestic tasks in no way detract from the stories themselves I can see a TV mini series being made from these tales as they are amazingly visual and special effects would be able to produce the ghostly elements really well


  7. says:

    The main story The Wind in the Rose Bush and Luella Miller downright disturb me to my core I've re read them countless times and still can't get enough of them

    Not a fan I tried to get through these stories but didn't have much luck I got about halfway through I did not like the way the author wrote these stories I'm not really sure how to say it but the style was hard to understand and I felt really stupid reading these It's like the author had to throw in some pretty big words in my opinion which threw me out of the story Or she just rearrange the words in a sentence so it didn't really make sense to me Ex Finally Rebecca herself waxed unexpectedly louacious Thankfully my kindle can tell me what the big words mean hahaThere's a few things up garret Really she couldn't have just said the things were in the attic? Or upstairs?This woman had none of the garrulousness of ageuestionsCommentsShe was tall and spare and pale What does a person being described as 'spare' look like?Rebecca is on the ferry talking to the couple sitting near her She tells the lady that his first wife was my sisterI'm going to see her and take my niece Agnes home with me How was she going to see her sister? She's dead Of course at that point I didn't know thatThere were many sentences that didn't really make sense to me either Ex I wasn't so situated that I could take her when her mother died John Dent's widow had sent a horse and wagon to meet her sister in law Huh?I guess Agnes will have considerable ?I don't see as it is blowingIsn't it most time for her to be coming home?Given one common intensity of emotion and similar lines showed forth and the three sisters of one race were evidentIt's hard for a reader at least me to get engaged in a story then randomly have these words or phrases thrown at me I get what the author is trying to say but the fact that I have to stop and pause to decipher the hidden messagenot a fan ofWhere was the first story taking place at? And what century? A piazza is mentioned in the first one but by the way they talkI don't know When I hear words like 'ain't' well it makes me think of rednecks or something What is wa'n't?

    This is an excellent collection of traditional ghost stories Mary E Wilkins Freeman is a talented writer who has become somewhat forgotten today which is a shame Whereas some of her contemporaries have a real knack for tone Wilkins excels in prose that is precise and clear especially considering her writings are not long out of the Victorian era She has a gift for very accessible and pleasingly written work She's no slouch on atmosphere and dread either Fans of Gothic horror ghost stories and weird fiction should give The Wind in the Rosebush a goThe stories are pretty straightforward ghost yarns but Wilkins tends to focus on women protagonists which is uncommon in the genre for the time even when a woman was penning the tale Her women are intelligent and clever the men are mostly peripheral but range from skeptic to outright foolish She also has fairly developed characters for the era And Ms Freeman can get particularly eerie especially in the title story The Southwest Chamber and The Vacant Lot Some of the other readers here didn't seem too enad with The Vacant Lot but for my money it is the scariest of the bunch if not the most clever The ghosts in that story are menacing and dreadful The title story is the closest in tone to being an outright weird tale with its specter alternately taking human form and that of a rose Luella Miller is also a stand out as it isn't a ghost story per se' but focuses on a woman who seems to siphon all the energy out of those who care for her which makes it one of the most original stories in the lotA story I wish was included here is The Hall Bedroom which is one of Mary E Wilkins Freeman's strangest and most interesting stories definitely closer to the weird than the horror I encountered it in a little known collection of early women horror writers entitled The Cold Embrace

    The stories in this collection areThe Wind in the Rose BushThe Shadows on the WallLuella MillerThe Southwest ChamberThe Vacant LotThe Lost GhostEach one is as much psychological horror as it is the conventional ghost story most Victorians would have written The titular tale in particular is a chilling portrayal of gaslighting before the term was even adopted Luella Miller is technically some kind of psychic vampire yet also works as a metaphor for narcissism and toxic relationships The interplay between characters is overall so realistically done that the terror and confusion of the paranormal is only heightened The Southwest Chamber especially was downright reeling imagine looking at wallpaper you've seen almost everyday and suddenly it's wrong The stories are also very female centered which I thought was pretty cool for this era The personalities present were extremely diverse and included some independent women living and working on their ownJust one thing that kind of bugged me Freeman had the occasional habit tacking adverbs onto the word said ie she said chokingly she said agitatedly shudderingly wonderingly easily It wasn't something she did constantly but it was so awkward that it really stood out
