“The Ensouled Violin” by Helena Blavatsky


Story 271/366

Helena Blavatsky, better known as “Madame Blavatsky” was co-founder of the Theosophical Society. (Its motto is, “There is no religion higher than the truth.”) This horror story, “The Ensouled Violin,” (found here) is a story that could use a few footnotes (What IS a “fauberg?”) to help explicate some of the more 19th century stuff in the story.  The story is a bit … predictable … but it’s spooky and the supernatural denouement is fun.

See you tomorrow!
