    1. Ann Radcliffe was an English author, a pioneer of the gothic novel.Radcliffe was born Ann Ward in Holborn At the age of 22, she married journalist William Radcliffe, owner and editor of the English Chronicle, in Bath in 1788 The couple was childless and, to amuse herself, she began to write fiction, which her husband encouraged.She published The Castles of Athlin and Dunbayne in 1789 It set the tone for the majority of her work, which tended to involve innocent, but heroic young women who find themselves in gloomy, mysterious castles ruled by even mysterious barons with dark pasts.Her works were extremely popular among the upper class and the growing middle class, especially among young women Her works included A Sicilian Romance 1790 , The Romance of the Forest 1791 , The Mysteries of Udolpho 1794 , and The Italian 1796 She published a travelogue, A Journey Through Holland and the Western Frontier of Germany in 1795.The success of The Romance of the Forest established Radcliffe as the leading exponent of the historical Gothic romance Her later novels met with even greater attention, and produced many imitators, and famously, Jane Austen s burlesque of The Mysteries of Udolpho in Northanger Abbey, as well as influencing the works of Sir Walter Scott.Stylistically, Radcliffe was noted for her vivid descriptions of exotic and sinister locales, though in reality the author had rarely or never visited the actual locations Shy by nature, she did not encourage her fame and abandoned literature as a pursuit.She died on February 7, 1823 from respiratory problems probably caused by pneumonia She was buried in Saint George s Church, Hanover Square in London.

    2. Conventional wisdom declares that Radcliffe was both dismayed and inspired by Lewis s The Monk into making The Italian her finest book I disagree The Italian is certainly her best constructed and most tightly plotted novel and the concentrated Italianate atmosphere is extremely effective, particularly in the descriptions of landscapes I think, though, that Mrs Radcliffe s horror at Lewis s excesses of taste and immorality caused her to be too cautious toward her own genius, and that in The Itali [...]

    3. Repulsed and inspired by Matthew Gregory Lewis s graphic gothic novel, The Monk, Anne Radcliffe s The Italian is a complexly plotted Romance the term was derogatory then, although what they meant by a Romance then is not what we would derogatorily dismiss as a Romance now about two chaste and na ve teens who fall madly in love with each other at first glance but then have their parade rained on by the boy s mean spirited mother and her minion, Schedoni, the conniving and ghoulish monk who chomps [...]

    4. I had read The Mysteries of Udolpho earlier in the year and was interested enough in Radcliffe to want to read of her work My copy of The Italian had an introduction which I wish I had been able to read before starting on Udolpho, as it explains a lot about the Radcliffe style Here is a short excerpt The basic pleasure in Mrs Radcliffe s romances comes from a suspension of disbelief that leads to an enjoyment of the works of her fiction in and for itself Cheerfully anachronistic in the tastes a [...]

    7. This is the first time I ve read a book that had me force myself through the first half, to then discover something of the most wonderful literature I can remember.Therefore, it s very hard to grade The Italian It s a slow, difficult read as much as a wonderful, subtle, psychological piece of work The naive Vivaldi falls in love at first sight with the lovely, but poor Ellena His mother, the Marchesa, does everything in her power to stop them seeing each other She contacts her confessor, the mon [...]

    8. There s a recurring joke in The Italian where one character tries to convey a story to another character, making it much longer than it needs to be The story often contains some very important information, such as someone s death The second character will frequently interrupt them, saying just get on with it but the first one will tell them to calm down and continue to tell their story at a meandering pace Not only is joke very annoying and even so once it happens for the fourth or fifth time b [...]

    9. Oh, man What s happening to me I really enjoyed this book It s essentially the story of two young people who conceive a deep and abiding love for each other on the strength of a very brief acquaintance, largely consisting of longing for each other from afar after a brief initial meeting and subsequently spending a few boating trips together, chaperoned by suitably respectable relatives The boy is from a noble and proud family the girl, apparently, is from far humble stock His parents, hearing s [...]

    10. I was first introduced to Ann Radcliffe by Jane Austen, herself which some of her stories were mentioned in her Jane s novels I have read almost all of her novels and the first time I read The Italian was about 5 years ago and loved it While I was reading Charlotte Bronte s Shirley last year, Caroline made a comment about Radcliffe s The Italian and having a different opinion of the ending, I had to re read to see if I was wrong in my surmise Quote from Shirley But Rose, pursued Caroline , I rea [...]

    11. En lo desconocido siempre estar la sorpresa Famosa por los Los misterios de Udolfo , demuestra que las novelas gruesas son m s f ciles del boca a boca.Tras 420 p ginas, la soledad nos ahogar Chico con bienes, conoce a chica conviviendo con su t a moribunda Ella claro esta no tiene ni un duro y su alcurnia es del subsuelo Ellos se quieren y casarse tambi n Mam con posibilidades tiene un sofoc n, al igual que papa Duque No es posible que su hijo se case con un desecho material.Tras esa base, las s [...]

    12. Siamo alla fine dell Ottocento in Italia meridionale Un gruppo di inglesi impegnati nel Grand Tour si trova a visitare la Chiesa di Santa Maria del Pianto, a Napoli un misterioso e oscuro personaggio intravisto nei pressi di un confessionale il pretesto per avviare il racconto straordinario che ruota attorno a una terribile confessione fatta da un peccatore a un frate in quella chiesa, molti anni prima Napoli, 1758 Il giovane e baldanzoso marchesino Vincenzo di Vivaldi, appartenente a una famigl [...]

    13. 2.5 5He thought that to be a guard over prisoners was nearly as miserable as being a prisoner himself I see no difference between them, said he, except that the prisoner watches on one side of the door, and the centinel on the other I have every reason in the world to hate this book The writing is convoluted in aping Shakespeare while playing at novelhood, the plot is dramatic to a fault, and the edition itself contributed a fair deal to the decay of my eyesight with its compacted mess the stand [...]

    14. Ann Radcliffe s novel is one of the landmarks of the early gothic novel, and a basic sketch of the plot shows us why aristocrat Vivaldi falls in love with the lovely Ellena, a girl without title or money, and his family conspires to go to any lengths to keep them apart, eventually involving the sinister and amoral monk Schedoni in their plans Vivaldi and Ellena are sympathetic enough, but Schedoni steals the show, as all great villains do murder, blackmail, false accusations, family abandonment, [...]

    15. The Italian is the first of Ann Radcliffe s novels that I ve read I can certainly see why Jane Austen just couldn t help herself and had to parody this style of book in Northanger Abbey The absurdly complicated and melodramatic plot that relies on so many ridiculous coincidences was too easy a target to be ignored The other great fault of the book is that the characterisations are just too black and white The book does have considerable strengths though Radcliffe is exceptionally good at creatin [...]

    16. Loved it Beautifully written Beautifully scary situations with just enough tension release to let you breathe now and again , ugly villians, good plot surprises, and A Happy Day, A Happy Day at the endbut I won t tell you who ends up happy Grab a dictionary lots of vocabulary words from the SATs some hot chocolate and enjoy I want to read Radcliffe novels.

    17. Sags a little here and there and steals the Marquis de Montalt s oh so convenient exit from The Romance of the Forest for an ending but is still miles enjoyable than Udolpho, and with infinitely less padding not a poem in sight.The dreamy, dreary little sequence with Ellena by the sea displays some of the most effectively eerie writing of Radcliffe s whole career it really does feel like a long, slow percolating nightmare.

    18. This book was a slog and a half By no means was it bad, but it was a little predictable and not all that entertaining in my mind And it just took so long to make any headway I wanted to like it Ann Radcliffe, favourite author of Katherine Moreland but I just struggled so much Ah well

    19. I ll admit that my main motivation for reading this piece was to see how it compared to Lewis controversial Monk, which was my previous read As my first foray into Radcliffe, I soon noted the gentler approach to the topic via its descriptive prose Unfortunately, it also became increasingly frustrating, due to its slow, drawn out pace and at times repetitive details that essentially made me want to HURRY AND FINISH the thing already Come to think of it there are several instances in the book wher [...]

    20. I felt like I was reading My Immortal, where all of the characters speak in adverbs flirtily, flintily, shockingly, provokingly I read this book the way English scholars a hundred years from now will read Twilight wild mild appreciation and boredom Stay tuned for the Italian Inquisition, which nobody was expecting At all Least of all me.

    21. I ve been reading a lot of Ann Radcliffe lately for a course on Gothic Literature I have been doing and this is the best one of hers I ve read to date I should just say, I ve read A Sicilian Romance, The Mysteries of Udolpho, The Castles of Athlin and Dunblane, but not read the posthumous one or The Romance of the Forest as yet So perhaps I should have called this review Best to date or something like that However, I can t see how it s going to get any better than this one Whereas A Sicilian Rom [...]

    22. This is a wonderful book to fall asleep to.It s not as long as The Mysteries of Udolpho a book by the same author which I ve read but it drags on, and a lot of the author s attempts at building suspense backfire by being gratuitously drawn out.Vivaldi is a young heir to a politically affluent family who falls in love with a working class girl before he s even seen her face and sets about trying to woo her without comming across like a complete creep and fails His family finds out about his roman [...]

    23. Ann Radcliffe s third best selling Gothic novel is considered perhaps to be one of her finest.Unlike her earlier novels, The Italian 1797 is set much closer to when Radcliffe is writing, in the late eighteenth century, specifically in Naples in southern Italy and Rome What many readers do perhaps not realize is that Radcliffe never actually travelled in Italy herself Her observant and atmospheric descriptions of convents perched on crags in the Alps are all imaginative, and inspired particularly [...]

    24. After having read The Mysteries of Udolfo, I was very excited to read The Italian, which Dr R had mentioned is an even better book I don t know if it s really better but it is very different The gothic elements in The Italian are far less of the ghost and goblin kind think the curtain in Udolfo, or the mystery corpse , and of the evil that human nature is possible of The plot is relatively easy to keep track of, and the characters are deeply developed than in Udolfo, with Ellena being a very v [...]

    25. Ok, let me explain this 5 star rating This is not a good book in the sense that I usually mean when I say good book It is not profound, its characters are static, and its plot is contrived However, it is everything I wanted it to be It s like Ann Radcliffe, while peering deep into my soul from a few centuries ago, was like, you know what would be good, cheesy, and entirely satisfying fun A story of forbidden love that involves mistaken identity, a valiant sword fight or two, an evil monk, secret [...]

    26. I can t say I liked it, but in general it was ok There are some moments when you enjoy the twists of the plot, but there are too many parts I really had to struggle through The protagonists sentimental sufferings sometimes look unnatural, and the characters interrupting each other for stupid reasons and then quarelling about it really blow your mind.

    27. It all seems a bit like a politer version of Matthew Lewis The Monk For the first time in my reading of Radcliffe I did feel the terror , especially in the scene when Schedoni creeps up on her when she s asleep spoilers All in all, it was a good read I liked it a lot.
