نبذة عن المؤلف (2015)

The first lady of Gothic fiction, Ann Radcliffe (1764–1823) had
among her devotees Jane Austen, Mary and Percy Shelley, Lord Byron and
Matthew Lewis to name but a few. Her darkly mysterious romances explore
far-off locations, where the supernatural lurks behind every pine tree,
where she takes her characters and readers on a journey through tangled
forests and ruined castles, deep into the very heart of desire. The Mysteries of Udolpho
is perhaps her best known work, a work of such influential nature in
shaping the early Gothic genre that it is even parodied in Jane Austen’s
Northanger Abbey.
