Witch Burn

“Let’s celebrate that we don’t burn women anymore.”

The Mysteries of Udolpho

A/N: Just a couple of thoughts I had after reading the book.

The Mysteries of Udolpho is perhaps the most perfect example of a Gothic tale.

Whatever you assimilate with the genre of Gothic, you will most likely find in The Mysteries of Udolpho.

It is certainly not a problem to see why people in the 18th century considered this thrilling tale a page-turner, but for the modern reader the story is most likely also going to appear unnecessary long and with an entirely unneeded quantity of poetry.

A couple of hundred of pages could easily be cut away, and Radcliffe would have been better off using half a dozen fewer sub-plots.

Nevertheless, The Mysteries of Udolpho can still be an entertaining story for the modern reader – assuming that he or she has the time to spare.

He looked out the window at the oncoming…
