|Title:||Ann Radcliffe: The Development of a Narrative Technique|

|Abstract:||<p>This thesis is concerned with some aspects of Ann Radcliffe's development as a writer. Most of it deals with her as a writer of Gothic novels: her groups of Gothic and Romantic characters, her treatment of suspense, and her use of the Gothic castle. The chapter on landscape and background treats an aspect of her work which is not exclusively Gothic, but which contributes to the Gothic atmosphere, and which is sufficiently characteristic of her to warrant separate consideration. Some attention is given to sources and influences, and an attempt is made to evaluate her various techniques.</p>|
