During the whole of a dull, dark, and soundless day in the autumn of the year, when the clouds

hung oppressively

low in the heavens, I had been passing alone, on horseback, through a singularly dreary tract

of country

, and at length found myself, as the shades of the evening drew on, within view of the

melancholy castle on the hill.

I

reined my horse to the precipitous brink of a black and lurid

lake

that lay in unruffled luster by the dwelling…[with] vacant and eye-like windows.
