british english

I have to find out what this part of a story is about. 1) don't know where professor got it 2)I think it might pertain to Victorian era:

They measured each other with the eye. to her he was a spidery thing against the velvet blackness and hard silver sufaces of the pond. ....A squaw, she dared not strike her lord.

please help

Could we please have the title and author? That would help us help you.

that's it. professor did not give that info out. I am trying to figure that myself.

Check out this site. Walpole was the first British writer of gothic novels. Castle at Otranto was the hallmark for later writers... See if this strikes a note. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Castle_of_Otranto

Here is the site for the book online:
