Overview


This edition includes a modern introduction and a list of suggested further reading.
 

The Mysteries of Udolpho has been thrilling readers for over two hundred years and holds a critically important place in the history of gothic literature, the rise of romanticism, and the development of the modern detective novel. The novel has something for everyone: Although Radcliffe subtitled The Mysteries of Udolpho "a romance," this gothic thriller is also in part a travelogue, a sentimental novel, a novel of manners, a female Bildungsroman, and a mystery--it even contains a selection of poems. While readers will enjoy wondering whether heroine Emily St. Aubert will ever escape the clutches of her step-uncle Montoni to reunite with her stalwart lover Valancourt, they will also ponder the eerie music, odd family resemblances, unexpected corpses, and sinister disappearances that haunt Emily--and whose mysteries Emily seeks to solve.

Meet the Author



When she published The Mysteries of Udolpho, Ann Ward Radcliffe (1764-1823) was just shy of her thirtieth birthday. She had begun writing shortly after her marriage to journalist William Radcliffe in order to pass the time when her husband worked late, and her hobby quickly became a profitable venture. After she wrote The Italian (1797), Radcliffe mysteriously stopped publishing her works, leading to erroneous reports that she had died or become insane. She died peacefully in her bed of complications from spasmodic asthma at the age of 58.

    Incredibly Captivating

    I decided to read The Mysteries of Udolpho after reading Jane Austin's Northanger Abbey, which is also an excellent book. This (Udolpho) is by far the best book I have ever read. There are so many twists and turns in the story. Emily is such a dear sweet girl who finds herself in horrible circumstances. Your heart aches for her. Will she ever fulfill her father's desires for her future?
