A Sicilian romance by Ann Ward Radcliffe( Book )

86 editions published between 1790 and 2015 in 3 languages and held by 958 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In A Sicilian Romance (1790) Radcliffe began to forge the unique mixture of the psychology of terror and poetic description that would make her the great exemplar of the Gothic novel, and the idol of the Romantics. This early novel explores the cavernous landscapes and labyrinthine passages of Sicily's castles and convents to reveal the shameful secrets of its all-powerful aristocracy. Julia and Emilia Mazzini live secluded in an ancient mansion near the straits of Messina. After their father's return to the island a neglected part of the house is haunted by a series of mysterious sights and sounds. The origin of these hauntings is only discovered after a series of breathless pursuits through dreamlike pastoral landscapes. When revelation finally comes, it forces the heroines to challenge the united forces of religious and patriarchal authority
The castles of Athlin and Dunbayne : a Highland story by Ann Ward Radcliffe( Book )

115 editions published between 1789 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 914 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The novel is a set in a powerful landscape which became familiar in her later work, with complex clan feuds and mysterious romantic intrigues played out against a backdrop of ruined medieval castles and rugged Scottish coastlines. Each of the characters can be defined by their passions: The present Earl of Athlin, Osbert, is driven by a passionate desire to avenge his father’s murder at the hand of Malcolm, the Baron of Dunbayne. His sister, Mary, is ever swooning and fainting in an attempt to resist her passion for Alleyn, a highlander not of noble birth (and therefore unworthy). Alleyn is likwise driven to heroic deeds of rescue because of his love for Mary. Even the villain, Baron Malcolm, is driven by his desire—first a desire to kill Osbert; it is later supplanted by his desire to possess Mary. Although the passions of its leading characters dominate the plot, the castles of the title are as central to the narrative, establishing an enduring Gothic trope."--Wikipedia

5 editions published in 1826 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this novel, written in the Winter of 1802 but not published during her lifetime, Radcliffe, so famous for her after-the-fact rational explanations of apparently supernatural occurrences, moved past semblance to feature supernatural machinery and a "genuine ghost, who supports a claim that the king's favorite knight has murdered him (for the sake of a magic sword). The novel is also of interest in that it is set in the thirteenth century, and is thus an extremely early example of the historical novel." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 799."--abebooks website

Ann Radcliffe, Romanticism and the Gothic by Dale Townshend( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book offers unique and fresh perspectives upon the literary productions of one of the most highly remunerated and widely admired authors of the Romantic period, Ann Radcliffe (1764-1823). While drawing upon, consolidating and enriching the critical impulses reflected in Radcliffe scholarship to date, this collection of essays, composed by a range of renowned scholars of the Romantic period, also foregrounds the hitherto understudied aspects of the author's work. Radcliffe's relations to Romantic-era travel writing; the complex political ideologies that lie behind her historiographic endeavours; her poetry and its relation to institutionalised forms of Romanticism; and her literary connections to eighteenth-century women's writing are all examined in this collection. Offering fresh considerations of the well-known Gothic fictions and extending the appreciation of Radcliffe in new critical directions, the collection reappraises Radcliffe's full oeuvre within the wider literary and political contexts of her time"
