Activity: Participating in or organising an eventSeminar/workshop/course


Once called ‘The Great Enchantress’, Ann Radcliffe is one of the most significant figures in the early Gothic canon. A hugely popular and commercially successful writer, it is often her fourth novel – The Mysteries of Udolpho (1794) – that Radcliffe is most well remembered by. Yet Radcliffe’s body of work goes far beyond Udolpho, across novels, travel writing, and essays. This seminar examined Radcliffe’s identity as an author beyond her most famous text, exploring her legacy in the Gothic at large.
