Lawrence Venuti received a Renato Poggioli Translation Award for his translation of Barbara Alberti's novel Delirium . The characterization in English as "Gothic tales" is a little misleading. Tarchetti's "Fantastic tales" are exemplary of the Italian branch of Fantastic literature.

Lawrence Venuti received a Renato Poggioli Translation Award for his translation of Barbara Alberti's novel Delirium and was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship in Humanities for his translation of Giovanni Pascoli's poetry and prose. He is a professor at Columbia University and also lectures at Princeton. For that, they are both wildly imaginative and laced with humor.

FANTASTIC TALES By I. U. Tarchetti. Illustrated by Jim Pearson. Judging from Lawrence Venuti's elegantly translated collection, "Fantastic Tales," the answer is yes. Take, for example, "A Spirit in a Raspberry," a tale set in rural Calabria. 191 pp. San Francisco: Mercury House. The story's protagonist, a young baron, typifies the complacent high spirits of the local aristocracy, who are unable to "imagine that beyond the jagged peaks of the Apennines might lie other lands, with different men, and different passions.

Iginio Ugo Tarchetti was an Italian author, poet, and journalist. lt;i Fantastic Tales

"Giulia's corpse...rests in her shroud as if wrapped in the veils of her virginal bed. Her beauty has lost none of its seductiveness. A white dress, light, almost diaphanous, covers her modest figure.... Her pure white hands lie at her sides with the gentle surrender of sleep, and only her feet, pointing upward and joined together, bear witness to the horrible rigidity of death."This passage from "Bouvard," a macabre evocation of obsessive love beyond the grave, typifies the eerie narratives in Fantastic Tales. The first Gothic tales published in the Italian language, Tarchetti's strange stories recall and sometimes imitate those of Edgar Allan Poe, E. T. A. Hoffmann, and Mary Shelley. In "A Spirit in a Raspberry," a nobleman is possessed by the soul of a servant girl; "The Letter U" recounts a man's mysterious phobia about that letter; the unexpected gift of everlasting life becomes a dreaded, endless curse in "The Elixir of Immortality."William Weaver, translator of Italo Calvino and Umberto Eco, writes: "While current Italian literature in English translation is closely followed by publishers, critics, and readers, the Italian writers of the past...are largely ignored. Lawrence Venuti now presents the nineteenth-century writer Iginio Ugo Tarchetti--a strange, romantic figure now almost forgotten even by Italian readers. But, as Venuti's probing introduction to this collection of tales indicates, Tarchetti is emblematic, the child of his times and their taste. These stories are enjoyable to read simply for themselves, but they also illustrate a literary culture of notable fascination. The translations flow, yet retain the flavor of their period and are true to the style and personality of their curious, gifted author."Mercury House is pleased to present the first English translation of Fantastic Tales, in a fine edition illustrated by San Francisco artist Jim Pearson.
