Ann Radcliffe's orphaned heroine Emily St. Aubert finds herself imprisoned in her evil guardina Count Ontoni's gloomy medieval fortress in the remote Apennines of Italy. Terror is inside the walls of Udolpho, as she strugges aganist Montoni's schemes and the threat of her own psychological distintegration. Radicliffe's work influenced the development of eighteenth and nineteenth-century Gothic horror fiction.
