A scholarly edition with a selection of contemporary reviews and extracts from various key reformist players, Gaston de Blondeville supports the recent opinion that Radcliffe's narrative politics are more radical than has previously been considered. -- Times Literary Supplement, June 1, 2007
About the Author
Ann Radcliffe was born Ann Ward. She married William Radcliffe. They had no children, and with her husband's encouragement, she wrote fiction to amuse herself. Her ""Gothic"" novels, which were extremely popular, tend to involve innocent but heroic young women who find themselves in gloomy, mysterious castles at the mercy of complicated men. They influenced Sir Walter Scott and were parodied by Jane Austen. Radcliffe died in 1823 pneumonia.
