Meet the Author



Ann Radcliffe became the best-selling English writer of the 1790s when her husband, publisher of the English Chronicle, encouraged her to write for the commercial market. Praised by Walter Scott and favorably compared to Shakespeare, Radcliffe wrote such successes as The Romance of the Forest and The Mysteries of Udolpho. At the height of her fame she ceased to publish, though she lived until 1823.

    Excellent Gothic Romance

    A Romance of the Forest is riveting through the end. Adeline is so endearing. She suffers through so much torment at the hands of the evil Marquis. At the same time she seems to be exceedingly lucky in that she is taken in by strangers who honestly care for her with the minor exception of M. La Motte. In Adeline's world instead of having six degrees of separation she seems to have only two or three degrees of separation whether they are in France, Switzerland, or Italy. The only remains one question unanswered in this story...In the Abbey, in the underground chambers La Motte discovered, there was a door that he could not open. It appeared to be locked from the other side. What is in that chamber?

    I Also Recommend:

    Ah, Gothic Classics!

    I believe this is the least known of Radcliffe's big three...fair, young, naive heroine? check. strange mysterious past? check. creepy run down abby? check. libidinous, treacherous, evil man of power? check. white knight trying to protect our heroine? check! This novel's got it all! I highly recommend for anyone interested in Gothic treats such as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, The Mysteries of Udolpho...

    Hard to get into

    I did start this book. but found it hard to get into. Had heard so much about the writer from other romantic books I have read that I thought it would be interesting to see what her writtings were about. Sadly disappointed, but then I may have given up too soon.
