Radcliffe's works exhibit a sort of realism , a psychological rather than fantastical horror that have made them one of the enduring classics of the early Romantic era, both for lovers of horror fiction and for general readers alike. As a genre writer, Radcliffe's reputation has never been as strong as some of her contemporaries, such as The Bronte sisters or Jane Austen. Austen herself wrote a novel-length parody of Radcliffe, and she has often been relegated to the sidelines of interest by critics studying the early Romantic period.

Nonetheless, in recent years a resurgence in interest in Radcliffe's works as literary artifacts has begun to develop. In her time, Radcliffe was admired by some of the brightest minds of her generation for her ability to tap into the powerfully sensational themes of Romanticism through her scenes of horror, including Coleridge and Byron. Today, Radcliffe is beginning to be recognized as an important influence on Walter Scott and a number of other major fiction writers of her period, and her contribution to the evolution of nineteenth-century fiction is well-recognized.

Ann Radcliffe was born Ann Ward in London. The couple were childless. To amuse herself, she began to write fiction, which her husband encouraged. She published The Castles of Athlin and Dunbayne in 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 more mysterious barons with dark pasts. Although most of her novels were set in continental Europe amid majestic landscapes, Radcliffe ironically never traveled to the continent until after she had already written most of her novels.

Her works were extremely popular among the upper class and the growing middle class, especially among young women.

Their ability to infuse sensations of fear and terror with a quiet, conscientious rationalism appealed tremendously to the literary tastes of her times. 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 and Mary Wollstonecraft.

The Mysteries of Udolpho , is widely considered to be Radcliffe's most influential work. It was published in the summer of by G. Robinson of London in four volumes.

Aubert who suffers, among other misadventures, the death of her father, supernatural terrors in a gloomy castle, and the machinations of an Italian brigand. Often cited as the archetypal Gothic novel , in which an impressionable young woman is left to fend for herself against the wiles of a sinister and possibly supernatural men.

The Mysteries of Udolpho is the quintessential work of Gothic fiction, replete with incidents of physical and psychological terror; remote, crumbling castles; seemingly supernatural events; a brooding, scheming villain; and a persecuted heroine. To this mix Radcliffe adds extensive descriptions of exotic landscapes in the Pyrenees and Apennines.

Set in in southern France and northern Italy , the novel focuses on the plight of Emily St.
