Ann Radcliffe

Although Ann Radcliffe (1764 - 1823) did not invent the Gothic novel, she was a major factor in its development and popularity, and her work was very influential on many later writers, including Jane Austen. Her two best-remembered books are 'The Mysteries of Udolpho' (1794) and 'The Italian' (1797).
