I wasn t sure whether to give this book three or four stars The writing is deserving of three stars however this novel marks a very different direction in gothic literature Often considered simply a retelling of Lewis The Monk with a female Ambrosio Zofloya is much First of all unlike Radcliffe s The Italian also a retelling of The Monk Dacre constructs a very different plot She also avoids religion so unlike Lewis book this one cannot be seen as being anti Catholic Victoria also marks a new kind of character a female demon who does not look in the least demonic She is also fully realized sexually She is the precursor of characters like Lady Audley Zofloya is far away from the terror novels of Anne Radcliffe and may be the first example of a horror novel written by a woman

READ & DOWNLOAD Zofloya; or, The Moor: A Romance of the Fifteenth Century SUMMARY Ü Zofloya; or, The Moor: A Romance of the Fifteenth Century CHARACTERS Û PRIMACLEANSEPLUSUK.CO.UK ↠ Charlotte Dacre O a career of deepening criminality conducted under Satan's watchful eye Charlotte Dacre's narrative deftly displays her heroine's movement from the vitalized position of Ann Radcliffe's heroines to a fully conscious commitment to vice that goes beyond that of 'Monk' Lewis's deluded Ambrosio The novel's most daring aspect is its anatomy of Victoria's intense sexual attraction to. I m debating between four and five stars on this one It s not perfect but it is entertaining When it was first published it was compared to Matthew Lewis s The Monk and people were absolutely appalled that a woman wrote this Victoria makes for an interesting and unlikable character and I was fascinated by the story I m going to stick with four stars though but I guess I might change that in a day or two Definitely worth checking out if you like early Gothic novels
