Elizabeth Gaskell's House
Once the highest paid author of the 1790s, Radcliffe’s most famous works include The Romance of the Forest and The Mysteries of Udolpho. Her writing was lauded by Walter Scott and influenced generations of women writers including Mary Wollstonecraft, Jane Austen, the Brontës, Charlotte Perkin Gilmore and Daphne Du Maurier. But beyond the crumbling castles and scary supernatural scenes, what does Radcliffe have to say about women, marriage and maternity? Join Dr Diane Duffy for all the answers and more in this terrifying talk.
