Rookwood by William Harrison Ainsworth
 
A rich and complex Gothic-Romance centring on the murky deeds of an ancient family.

House of Dust: A Symphony, The by AIKEN, Conrad
 
The House of Dust is a poem written in the four-movement format of a classical symphony. Hauntingly beautiful despite its bleak post-World War I depictions of human mortality and loss, the poem develops its movements around central images such as Japanese ukiyo-e ("floating world") woodblock prints, touching the reader's senses with endlessly evocative allusions to wind, sea, and weather. In this underlying Japanese sensibility and dependence on central perceptual images, Aiken's poem is sim ...
