Description
Preface: The epithets ?Grotesque? and ?Arabesque? will be found to indicate with sufficient precision the prevalent tenor of the tales here published. But from the fact that, during a period of some two or three years, I have written five?and?twenty short stories whose general character may be so briefly defined, it can? not be fairly inferred ? at all events it is not truly inferred ? that I have, for this species of writing, any inordinate, or indeed any peculiar taste or pre? possession. I may have written with an eye to this republication in volume form, and may, therefore, have desired to preserve, as far as a certain point, a certain unity of design. This is, indeed, the fact; and it may even happen that, in this manner, I shall never compose anything again. I speak of these things here, because I am led to think it is this pre? valence of the ?Arabesque? in my serious tales.
