NUMBER:4831
AUTHOR:Ann (Ward) Radcliffe (1764–1823)
QUOTATION:Fate sits on these dark battlements and frowns,
And as the portal opens to receive me,
A voice in hollow murmurs through the courts
Tells of a nameless deed. 1
 
Note 1.
These lines form the motto to Mrs. Radcliffe’s novel, “The Mysteries of Udolpho,” and are presumably of her own composition. [back]
