My copy of The Italian had an introduction which I wish I had been able to read before starting on Udolpho, as it explains a lot about the Radcliffe style. Radcliffe's best romance. Leaving Naples secretly in pursuit of her abductors, Vivaldi and Paulo eventually find Ellena held at the remote convent of San Stefano, at the mercy of a cruel Lady Abbess, and Vivaldi infiltrates the convent disguised as a religious pilgrim to rescue her.
