A Sicilian romance by Ann Ward Radcliffe( Book )

In A Sicilian Romance (1790) Radcliffe began to forge the unique mixture of the psychology of terror and poetic description that would make her the great exemplar of the Gothic novel, and the idol of the Romantics. This early novel explores the cavernous landscapes and labyrinthine passages of Sicily's castles and convents to reveal the shameful secrets of its all-powerful aristocracy. Julia and Emilia Mazzini live secluded in an ancient mansion near the straits of Messina. After their father's return to the island a neglected part of the house is haunted by a series of mysterious sights and sounds. The origin of these hauntings is only discovered after a series of breathless pursuits through dreamlike pastoral landscapes. When revelation finally comes, it forces the heroines to challenge the united forces of religious and patriarchal authority

5 editions published in 1826 in English and held by 63 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this novel, written in the Winter of 1802 but not published during her lifetime, Radcliffe, so famous for her after-the-fact rational explanations of apparently supernatural occurrences, moved past semblance to feature supernatural machinery and a "genuine ghost, who supports a claim that the king's favorite knight has murdered him (for the sake of a magic sword). The novel is also of interest in that it is set in the thirteenth century, and is thus an extremely early example of the historical novel." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 799."--abebooks website
