The mysteries of Udolpho by Ann Radcliffe


Despite other reviews I did enjoy this book.

First, it’s a classical gothic romance and certainly has influenced the books of this genre published after that.

Second, each chapter begins with excellent and memorable quotations from Shakespeare, Milton and so on.

The main character is more an Austen’s type but it didn’t bother into the plot, on the contrary.
