A Sicilian Romance.
First published in 1790, this novel takes place on the northern coast of Sicily. A young tourist visiting the ruins of an ancient castle listens to a monk tell the story of the once-noble Mazzini family. The Marquis Mazzini is guilty of numerous crimes against his daughters and wives. The psychology of terror and poetic descriptions of nature and ruins combine to create the true Gothic mood. Radcliffe [1764-1823] wrote many shocking novels, including one famously read by Isabella Thorpe and Catherine Morland in Northanger Abbey.
