This is Ann Radcliffe's most complete success in fiction, and a fine example of Gothic romance. In it, primarily through the character of its extraordinary hero, Schedoni, the book becomes more than just a thriller. The elements of tragedy are there and sustained so as to take it beyond the artifices of the Gothic.
