Having frittered away his family's fortune in Paris, the profligate Guido il Cortese incurs the wrath of his future father-in-law and finds himself in exile from his native Genoa and harbouring plans for revenge.

After a mighty storm, he sees a mysterious, misshapen creature emerging from the sea, with whom he makes an infernal bargain to exchange bodies, with momentous consequences.

First published in 1831 and here presented with the supernatural stories 'The Evil Eye' and 'The Immortal Mortal', the chilling Gothic tale 'Transformation' is a paragon of the genre by the author of Frankenstein.
