Anne Radcliffe (Holborn9 luglio 1764 – Holborn7 febbraio 1823)  was an English author and a pioneer of the Gothic novel. While there were others that preceded her, Radcliffe was the one that legitimised the genre. Sir Walter Scott called her the "founder of a class or school".

Jane Austen parodied Radcliffe's novel The Mysteries of Udolpho inNorthanger Abbey. Radcliffe did not like where Gothic literature was headed, and her final novel, The Italian, was written in response to Matthew Gregory Lewis's The Monk. It is assumed that this frustration is what caused Radcliffe to cease writing. After Radcliffe's death, her husband released her unfinished essay "On the Supernatural in Poetry," which details the difference between the sensation of terror her works aimed to achieve and the horror Lewis sought to evoke.
