Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu, “Green Tea”


From the pioneer of horror fiction, this tale of a clergyman tormented by a demonic creature is one of the greatest Victorian ghost stories


Green Tea was published in the collection In a Glass Darkly (1872), a group of tales connected as narratives reported by a German physician, Dr. Hesselius, who is interested in exploring the relationship between the unconscious and the supernatural. As in much gothic fiction, the narrative is even more indirect, for it is introduced by Dr. Hesselius’s secretary, who is ostensibly reproducing the doctor’s letters after she had translated them.


Joseph Sheridan Le Fanu (1814–1873) is one of the indispensable figures in the history of Gothic and horror fiction-the most important such writer in English, certainly, between Poe and M. R. James. While a number of his sensation and mystery novels were popular with mid-Victorian readers, it was in shorter forms that he truly excelled, and most showed himself an innovator in the field of uncanny fiction.
