Vernon Lee

A Wicked Voice

Listen in app
A short story from the British Library Tales of the Weird collection A Phantom Lover and Other Dark Tales by Vernon Lee. ‘A Wicked Voice’ reuses the theme of music from beyond the grave from Vernon Lee’s first ghost story ‘Winthrop’s Adventure’. Here, young composer Magnus is writing an opera, determined to go against the conventions of his predecessors, but he soon finds himself haunted by a voice beyond the grave which overpowers him and stops him writing.
