An Unmissable Literary Classic by Ann Radcliffe

The Mysteries of Udolpho by English author Ann Radcliffe is a book of literary fiction first published in 1794 in the UK.

A celebrated gothic romance classic filled with thrilling adventure and dark mystery.

Excerpt

'Emily gazed with melancholy awe upon the castle, which she understood to be Montoni's; for, though it was now lighted up by the setting sun, the gothic greatness of its features, and its mouldering walls of dark grey stone, rendered it a gloomy and sublime object. As she gazed, the light died away on its walls, leaving a melancholy purple tint, which spread deeper and deeper, as the thin vapour crept up the mountain, while the battlements above were still tipped with splendour. From those, too, the rays soon faded, and the whole edifice was invested with the solemn duskiness of evening. Silent, lonely, and sublime, it seemed to stand the sovereign of the scene, and to frown defiance on all, who dared to invade its solitary reign.'

Synopsis

Ann Radcliffe's fourth and most popular novel, it tells of Emily St. Aubert, who suffers misadventures that include the death of her mother and father, supernatural terrors in a gloomy castle, and the machinations of an Italian brigand.
