This book contains a collection of spooky tales from Ukrainian author and co-founder of the Theosophical Society, Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. She is chiefly known by her encyclopedic knowledge, her occult powers and her unique courage. "Nightmare Tales" shows her as a vivid, graphic writer, gifted with brilliant imagination. She leads the reader into a bizarre labyrinth of beguiling and sometimes cruel stories, from "The Cave of the Echoes" to "The Luminous Shield" to "The Ensouled Violin", based on the rumour that the renowned composer Paganini sold his soul to the devil in exchange for his amazing musical talent. But as fascinating as these stories are, they contain a deeper meaning than simple entertainment. Each story contains hidden truths and representations of esoteric principles derived from ancient wisdom.
Contents: The Bewitched Life; The Cave of the Echoes; The Luminous Shield; From the Polar Lands; The Ensouled Violin.
Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (31 July 1831 - 8 May 1891) was a Russian-German occultist and the co-founder of the Theosophical Society. "Nightmare Tales" was first published in 1907.
