    This was the most popular novel of Radcliffe's time; Radcliffe's portrayal of her heroine's inner life raised the Gothic romance to a new level.

    A Sicilian Romance by Ann Radcliffe is considered the pioneer of the gothic novel.

    On the northern shore of Sicily, the magnificent remains of a castle, which formerly belonged to the noble house of Mazzini, can still be seen.

    I misteri del castello di Udolfo fu pubblicato nel 1749 ed ha in se tutti gli elementi del romanzo gotico: paure , minacce fisiche e psicologiche, eventi apparentemente soprannaturali, ambientazione in castelli in rovina e ricchi di passaggi segreti, un’eroina virtuosa perseguitata. Il tutto incorniciato da descrizioni meticolose e pittoriche dei Pirenei e degli Appennini. La scrittura di Ann Radcliffe ha ispirato Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte, ma anche Dickens e altri grandi romanzieri. Cornice musicale di Ludwig van Beethoven.
