The Romance of the Forest (1791) heralded an enormous surge in the popularity of Gothic novels, in a decade that included Ann Radcliffe's later works, The Mysteries of Udolpho and The Italian.Set in Roman Catholic Europe of violent passions and extreme oppression, the novel follows the fate of its heroine Adeline, who is mysteriously placed under the protection of a family fleeing Paris for debt. They take refuge in a ruined abbey in south-eastern France, where sinister relics of thepast - a skeleton, a manuscript, and a rusty dagger - are discovered in concealed rooms. Adeline finds herself at the mercy of the abbey's proprietor, a libidinous Marquis whose attentions finally force her to contemplate escape to distant regions.Rich in allusions to aesthetic theory and to travel literature, The Romance of the Forest is also concerned with current philosophical debate and examines systems of thought central to the intellectual life of late eighteenth-century Europe.… (més)

Long and so very old and dated. . . . ( )

Look, nothing is ever going to live up to the rollicking and titillating Gothic romp The Monk. But there is something to be enjoyed in Ann Radcliffe's wholesome and blandly poetic style, even if there is a lot of sighing and tears and fainting. So much fainting. And the obligatory skeleton. And riches beyond compare at the very end. I do think that Adeline as a protagonist demonstrates much more agency and interiority than the other fairly insipid heroines that populate Gothic tales. For this move towards feminism alone, I give this 4, when it really is closer to a 3.5. Definitely less dramatic and lurid than The Mysteries of Udolpho. ( )

This may possibly be my last Ann Radcliffe novel. The enjoyment of The Romance of the Forest was much greater than Mysteries of Udolpho, but her novels are SO incredibly exhausting to read. The pace of The Romance of the Forest was quicker and more action packed than MOU, and the characters seemed much better written. Not too bad, just took forever. ( )

'It is the first proof of a superior mind to liberate itself from prejudices of country, or of education.' (222)

I read this because it was suggested to me that in the works of Ann Radcliffe and Maria Edgeworth I might find those female scientists I often claim did not exist in fiction until the 1880s. Well, I don't think they're to be found in this Gothic novel, either. Adeline may be educated in what we now call sciences, and even in clear thinking, but she is by no means a scientist, or even a (wo)man of science, and her clear thinking isn't linked to any kind of scientific training.

Outside of the science stuff, I didn't find much to enjoy here. Some mildly atmospheric bits, but man much of the rest of it is tedious. Hurry up Victorian realism, make novels palatable.

"El romance del bosque" fue la novela que más entusiasmo despertó entre sus contemporáneos (Coleridge o Walter Scott no escatimaron elogios en su momento), y hoy en día está considerada como la mejor novela de la autora. La importancia y la influencia del paisaje en los personajes y acontecimientos de la novela, las ruinas como símbolos de la fugacidad y del deterioro y desplome de las creaciones humanas y el culto de lo sombrío sustentan las contradictorias emociones de placer y miedo que tratan de provocar simultáneamente las novelas góticas.
