Romance of the Forest - Ann Radcliffe

Yet another wonder Gothic novel by Ann Radcliffe. Sometimes I wish I could thank Jane Austen for mentioning this other author's works in her own novel. If she hadn't, then I might have not ever heard of Ann Radcliffe.

The book is basically about tension between morality and pleasure. Also a mystery, as well as running away from creditors. Fairly interesting. I could understand why it was a major success at the time. :)
