Summaries and Reviews
Leaving seventeenth-century Paris, Adeline seeks refuge in a ruined abbey, where the unwanted attentions of a villainous marquis force her to flee (view table of contents) description: Product Description: This novel, although not as well-known as Radcliffe's later works, is thought to represent her work at its best. More than just a work of suspense and mystery, it is a work of ideas--a discussion of the contrasts between hedonistic doctrines and a system of education and values.

About: Ann Radcliffe’s Romance of the Forest, first published in 1791, is the epitome of the Gothic novel: a beautiful, orphaned heiress, a dashing hero, a dissolute, aristocratic villain, and a ruined abbey deep in a great forest are combined by the author in a tale of suspense where danger lurks behind every secret trap-door.
