In the book rendition of The Phantom of the Opera, later to be converted into the famous play, there is nothing supernatural about the Phantom. He’s really just sort of a weirdo, named Erik, who devised a bunch of special effects and secret passages in the opera house. An odd yet original and imaginative novel for the era – or at least, it would’ve been, but the English translation I read was difficult to follow at times.
