Nodier's contes are dense, rich, varied in their settings and imbued with supernaturalism. Trilby is set in the Western highlands of Scotland. It is a touching story, as well as being extremely imaginative, and the Scottish background is finely evoked. Smarra is an altogether more brutal story, extravagantly supernatural, with a stong sexual undercurrent.
