classic reverie
I read "The Italian", see the novel for that 5 star review. I read the story on iBook about 5 years ago and remember there being typos but can't recall how many. I read only on my Kindle now so I generally buy Delphi classics because I like a collection and generally Delphi has errors but this works had a good amount which I submitted all the ones I noticed and hopefully they will correct them. Even though this was a downside, I was still able to enjoy the story. Navigation is also better in oth ...more

Rating is for the quality of the publication and not so much the novel itself. It's a gothic of the old school and has interest value for that: overblown in all aspects. Fine. The transcription to kindle had errors on almost every page. S and f commonly mistransposed, for example. The thing only cost 49p so I shouldn't complain. But I am.

The kindle edition had quite a few typos, but the stories and poems are really wonderful.

Anne Radcliffe is one of my favorite authors of all time! I only read her 6 fiction/prose works as that's what I am interested in. The Mysteries of Udolpho is one of my all time fave books. The Italian, The Romance of The Forest, & A Sicilian Romance are great too. She is a perfect balance of genius, romance, suspense, & a bit of horror.

Ann Radcliffe was an English author, a pioneer of the gothic novel.

Radcliffe was born Ann Ward. Her father, William, was a haberdasher, who moved the family to Bath to manage a china shop in 1772. Radcliffe occasionally lived with her uncle, Thomas Bentley, in Chelsea, who was in partnership with a fellow Unitarian, Josiah Wedgwood. Although mixing in some distinguished circles, Radcliffe seems to
“The sweetness and fine expression of her voice attracted his attention to her figure, which had a distinguished air of delicacy and grace; but her face was concealed in her veil. So much indeed was he fascinated by the voice, that a most painful curiosity was excited as to her countenance, which he fancied must express all the sensibility of character that the modulation of her tones indicated.” 5 likes
“Ramsgate, Kent, in the early nineteenth century.  During the last twelve years of her life, Radcliffe suffered from a spasmodic asthma, calling for the unwearied attentions of her affectionate husband. In the hope of obtaining relief, they visited Ramsgate in the autumn of 1822. Radcliffe wrote her last piece of writing here.” 2 likes
