The Mysteries of Udolpho was published in four volumes on 8 May 1794 by G. G. and J. Robinson of London. Her fourth and most popular novel, The Mysteries of Udolpho follows the fortunes of Emily St. Aubert, who suffers, among other misadventures, the death of her father, supernatural terrors in a gloomy castle and the machinations of an Italian brigand. Often cited as the archetypal Gothic novel, The Mysteries of Udolpho, along with Radcliffes novel The Romance of the Forest, plays a prominent role in Jane Austens novel Northanger Abbey, in which an impressionable young woman, after reading Radcliffes novel, comes to see her friends and acquaintances as Gothic villains and victims with amusing results.
