Lee, Vernon: Hauntings -- Fantastic Stories (collected ghosts). v1. 12 Nov 2020

Hauntings was originally published in 1890. The text is in the public domain in countries where copyright is “Life+80” or less, and in the USA.

Four stories by Vernon Lee (Violet Paget),full of atmosphere and menace.

Each tale (making allowances for a little inversion) is about a “belle dame sans merci.” The fateful woman takes various forms: a prideful, bloody Renaissance princess; a six-year-old proto-Venus literally thrust forth by the sea; the fey mistress of a Jacobean country house who looks like her mysterious ancestor; and the voice of a famous castrato calling to a young Wagnerian composer across the centuries.
(—Goodreads

===================
Vernon Lee was the pseudonym of British writer Violet Paget (14 October 1856 – 13 February 1935). She is remembered today primarily for her supernatural fiction and her work on aesthetics. An early follower of Walter Pater, she wrote over a dozen volumes of essays on art, music, and travel.

===================
Not suited for casual reading — these challenging stories demand time, thought, and attention.
