About this ebook

Francia, anno 1584. La giovane Emily St. Aubert, orfana di entrambi i genitori, viene rinchiusa dalla zia Madame Cheron e dal perverso zio Montoni nell'oscuro castello di Udolfo, sugli Appennini francesi. Da subito nel castello inizieranno a verificarsi tutta una serie di avvenimenti strani e agghiaccianti, che porteranno Emily a una convulsa corsa contro il tempo per riconquistare la propria libertà.Considerato tra i precursori del romanzo gotico, questo racconto rovescia per la prima volta la canonica struttura del romanzo di formazione femminile, trasformandolo in un percorso dalle tinte horror e noir in cui l'eroina dovrà superare ogni limite per riuscire a salvarsi. -

Ann Radcliffe

Ann Radcliffe (1764-1823) was an English novelist. Born in London, she moved with her family to Bath in 1772 and was known as a shy girl in her youth. In 1787, she married Oxford graduate William Radcliffe, who owned and edited the English Chronicle. While he worked late to supervise the publication of the evening paper, Ann remained at home working on stories for her own entertainment. Eventually, with William’s encouragement, she began publishing her novels and soon became one of the bestselling writers of her time. Recognized as a pioneering author of Gothic fiction, Radcliffe first found acclaim with The Romance of the Forest (1791) and published her magnum opus, The Mysteries of Udolpho, just three years later. By the end of the eighteenth century, Radcliffe found herself at odds with the growing popularity of Gothic fiction and withdrew from public life almost entirely. While several biographers, including Christina Rossetti and Walter Scott, have attempted to piece together the story of her life, a lack of written correspondence and her overall pension for privacy have made her a figure whose mystery mirrors that of her novels.
