I read a couple of Gothic novels — The Castle Otranto and Vathek. They must've been really cool when they came out around 1800, but now they're the novel equivalent of Barbarella or Zardoz.

Isabella and her women tore Hippolita from the corse; but Theodore
threatened destruction to all who attempted to remove him from it.
He printed a thousand kisses on her clay-cold hands, and uttered
every expression that despairing love could dictate.
