in consequence of the missive, Beechan Cliff walk - Catherine's journey., penned by MandyN
'Udolpho' is full of details of views from top of hills or cliffs as seen by not only Emily but also Blanche.
Catherine's ideas about what a painting of a landscape would look like is obviously developed from reading 'udolpho'.
But now the Tilneys talk about landscape from an entirely different perspective.
With this enlightenment;
Because it was from the top of a cliff, and because it included a *city*, whereas the Tilneys had spoken only of nature.
I agree, the walk is definitely a change from the Thorpes for Catherine.
And all that mention of 'murder' in your post was really horrid ;-)
