From the beginning there are beatiful landscape descriptions, and an all pervading feeling of sadness, despair, and melancholy. The characters are uncertain about their safety, and their future, so they are unhappy.
Mrs. La Motte and Adeline, feel the pangs of loneliness. Maybe this is a book about loneliness, and the way people feel about it. Like most horror and fantasy books, it is a book about loneliness.
Mrs. Radcliffe creates an atmosphere of uncertainty, nobody really knows what is going to happen, and they always wait for the worst. The greatest terror is the terror of uncertainty, when everything people consider stable and firm, start to collapse. When things fall apart.
I particullary liked when Adeline, while talking to Mr. La Motte, said that people can extract comfort from most situations. Even in a desperate moment, it is possible to find pleasure and forgetfulness, appreciating a quiet and peaceful place or relaxing in a lovely scenary, instead of always concentrating on your problems, or misfortunes.
People, do not have to suffer the cloud of sorrow to tinge every object they look upon, - said Adeline-. Was not she right? Adeline always found comfort, in the contemplation of nature. Mrs. Radcliffe insists that people may find relief to their sorrows, contemplating a sublime place, or inmersing in nature.
Mr. LaMotte and his family settled in an abandoned abbey, surrrounded by a thick wood, and a deserted countryside. A beautiful, and - at the same time - dreary place.
Typical of this genre, the abbey has many recesses, secret chambers, cells, and apparently, a ghost. It seems that somebody dissapeared in the derelict abbey, a long time ago, in strange circumstances, and his spectre haunts the place. These facts succeed in creating a gloomy, melancholy and dreary atmosphere. A manuscript is found in one of the many recesses, that may explain what really happened in the abbey, and who were responsible for the misdeeds.
There are some good sonnets interspersed in the text, like one dedicated to fancy, that may help people to forget their misfortunes, or some other dedicated to the night, and to a lilly.
More disgraces await poor Adeline, she had to find out that people are not always what they seem to be. That certain persons she considered friends are not real friends. But in spite of her dissapointments, she still keeps faith in the goodness of humanity. She does not want to become a bitter person, who does not trust anybody, just because some people deceived her. With time, Adeline will learn that people may repent, and never are completely bad.
The moods and feelings of Adeline, - fear, dispair, terror, etc.- sometimes correspond to alteration in weather.
When she is afraid, there are violents storms, gusts, etc. It is as if her feelings were related with nature, and her gloomy moods are reflected outside. It is a way to enhance the feeling the writer wanted her readers to experience.
It is a book for people fond of gothic fiction. In spite of the naive plot, and somewhat idealized characters.
