"You speak like a heroine...let us see if you can act like one": Identity and Knowledge in the Works of Ann Radcliffe
Herzog, Catherine B.
The author considers the prototypes of the Gothic Romance genre, The Mysteries of Udolpho and The Italian with a feminist approach and finds that while there is no outward critique of a sexist society, Radcliffe's novels do give voice to an understanding of the condition of women.
