Clarimonde - Théophile Gautier. In 1877, Hearn left Cincinnati for New Orleans, where he remained for almost a decade. His writings about the city’s unique cultural life, especially its Creole population and distinctive cuisine, were published in magazines such as Harper’s Weekly and Scribner’s Magazine. His best-known New Orleans works are Gombo Zhèbes, Little Dictionary of Creole Proverbs in Six Dialects (1885), La Cuisine Créole (1885), and Chita: A Memory of Last Island, a novella first published in Harper’s Monthly in 1888

Translated By Lafcadio Hearn. very dress might serve as a pall for your coffin. And I felt life rising within me like a subterranean lake, expanding and overflowing; my blood leaped fiercely through my arteries; my long-restrained youth suddenly burst into active being, like the aloe which blooms but once in a hundred years, and then bursts into blossom with a clap of thunder.

The French writer Theophile Gautier (1811-1872) was a leading writer of the Romantic movement and forms a bridge between the supernatural fiction of Goethe and . Hoffmann and the pivotal pulp magazine Weird Tales. The book (translated by the 19th-century fantasist Lafcadio Hearn) opens with "One of Cleopatra's Nights," in which a common hunter recklessly declares his love for the queen; instead of having him executed, she proposes to take him for her lover, if he will agree to one horrific condition. The second of the six tales is Gautier's most famous, "Clarimonde" (which also appears, in a different translation, in Italo Calvino's anthology of 19th-century fantasy classics, Fantastic Tales, under the title "The Beautiful Vampire").

Love this story! Came as described and in a timely manner.
Fantastic, dark, rich, gothic and much too brief, this is a gem that every gothic horror fan needs to experience.
I am a huge fan of Theophile Gautier, and enjoyed reading this short story very much. A friend of mine read the story in French and liked it so much that I decided to search for an English translation. The French version is called "La Morte Amoreuse." I was happy to fine the book with the title changed to "Clarimonde," one of the main characters in the story. You rarely see books today written as well as the 18th and 19th century authors composed. They are truly a delight to read, as the language is so lovely.

This story ends with an abrupt moral that was a delightful surprise for me!
This is a novella about a priest who gets kidnapped in his dreams into a life of debauchery after falling in love with the corpse of a prostitute. And it's awesome enough to warrant that description.
