This tale, published in 1828, is based on The Story of an Apparition, a ghost story published in Blackwood's 10 years earlier by an author identified only as A. B. Sir Walter Scott took that rather flimsy story and turned into a masterful tale of the supernatural.More
Scottish writer Sir Walter Scott published the short piece "The Tapestried Chamber" in 1828 as part of The Keepsake Stories. In this ghost story, General Browne stops at the castle of a former classmate while he is traveling and there encounters a very strange woman in his bedchamber… who seems to be quite dead. Donna Barkman's performance lends the story a mysterious air. Her proper voice and clear diction embody General Browne's world while her somber yet warm tone make listening to Barkman an easy feat. Moreover, she seamlessly constructs voices for both male and female characters.
