Ann Radcliffe

“Very little is known of Ann Radcliffe’s life. In 1823, the year of her death, the Edinburgh Review said: “She never appeared in public, nor mingled in private society, but kept herself apart, like the sweet bird that sings its solitary notes, shrouded and unseen.” Christina Rossetti attempted to write a biography about her life, but abandoned the project for lack of information.”

“According to Ruth Facer: ‘Physically, she was said to be ‘exquisitely proportioned’ – quite short, complexion beautiful ‘as was her whole countenance, especially her eyes, eyebrows and mouth.'”
