A twentieth-century master of the fantastic pays homage to his nineteenth-century predecessors with this posthumously published anthology of enchanting, uncanny, terrifying, and deliciously entertaining short stories by the likes of E.T.A. Hoffmann, Gogol, and Poe. Calvino compiled and edited this collection and provides an individual introduction to each story, making Fantastic Tales not only an invaluable classroom resource, but also an accessible guide to the subject for general readers.
ITALO CALVINO's superb storytelling gifts earned him international renown and a reputation as "one of the world's best fabulists" ( New York Times Book Review ). At the time of his death in 1985, he was the most translated contemporary Italian writer.
