QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY! FAB LIT THINGS TO KNOW!

QUICK LIT BITE OF THE DAY

Regina Maria Roche-is considered today to be a minor Gothic novelist who wrote very much in the shadow of Ann Radcliffe. She was, however, a best seller in her own time. The popularity of her third novel, The Children of the Abbey, rivaled that of Ann Radcliffe’s The Mysteries of Udolpho.

The Children of the Abbey was one of the period’s most popular novels, a sentimental Gothic Romance. Her book, Clermont¸ was Roche’s only real attempt at writing a truly Gothic novel, and is decidedly darker in tone than anything else she wrote. Both novels went through several editions and were translated into both French and Spanish. Clermont was one of the Northanger Horrid Novels satirized by Jane Austen in her novel Northanger Abbey.
