The Mysteries of Udolpho Tough-o-Meter

By Ann Radcliffe

Tough-o-Meter

(8) Snow Line

It's not all secrets and suspense, that's for sure. Get ready for some very detailed descriptions of trees, mountains, and just about every kind of landscape imaginable, not to mention some pretty complex poetry written by Ms. Emily St. Aubert herself. It might sometimes seem like you're wading through lots of flowery language, but that's because Radcliffe means some serious business about setting the scene. Plus, there's some kind of unwritten rule that every couple of pages about the sublime nature of the forest equals a juicy ghost scene later on in the book.
