About the Author:

Ann Radcliffe (1764-1823), called “the first poetess of romantic fiction” by Sir Walter Scott, was the most popular and well-paid novelist of her time. Her work influenced an entire generation of writers as well as refining the Gothic genre itself. Her works originated the Byronesque hero.
