Abstract
In contrast to class is Gothic novels where a suffering female protagonist plays an important role, ghost stories continuing the Gothic tradition in late 19 and early 20 c) represent men's world: female characters are either absent or mostly ambivalent. E. F. Benson's stories reviving traditional images of a vampire ("Mrs. Amworth") and a spectral bridegroom ("The Face") are characteristic examples of this trend.
