Ruined castles, secret passages, perpetually fainting heroines, the vile conniving schemes of the local gentry -- and, of course, things that go bump in the night: Radcliffe's "A Sicilian Romance" has all of that, and if Radcliffe didn't invent the form, certainly she brought it into full flower. If you haven't read Radcliffe, this first novel is a fine place to start . . .

About the Author:

Ann Radcliffe was born Ann Ward. She married William Radcliffe. They had no children, and with her husband's encouragement, she wrote fiction to amuse herself. Her Gothic novels, which were extremely popular, tend to involve innocent but heroic young women who find themselves in gloomy, mysterious castles at the mercy of complicated men. They influenced Sir Walter Scott and were parodied by Jane Austen. Radcliffe died in 1823 pneumonia.

Review:

'Her own survey of the criticism is lucid and wide-ranging.' Times Literary Supplement
