Russel Kirk, one of the founding fathers of the post-war conservative movement in the United States, is widely known for his works of history, politics, and literary and social criticism. He also wrote ghostly tales and novels, and this party of his work has been neglected. With his supernatural tales, Kirk sought reawaken a sense of mystery, to remind his fellow wayfarers in this world of timeless truths, and to have some eerie fun. This thesis provides an introduction to Kirk's supernatural fiction.
