The Monk (Modern Library Classics) by Matthew Lewis

By Matthew Lewis

Whilst Matthew Lewis’s The Monk was once released in 1796, readers have been surprised by way of this gripping and bad novel. Lewis’s tale, which drove the home of Commons—of which he was once a member—to deem him licentious and perverse, follows the abbot Ambrosio as he's tempted right into a global of incest, homicide, and torture by means of a tender woman who has hid herself in his monastery disguised as a boy. As Ambrosio spirals into hell, the reader encounters an array of haunting characters: the blameless virgin, the Bleeding Nun, the Wandering Jew, an evil prioress, and Lucifer himself.

This glossy Library Paperback vintage, set from the unexpurgated first variation of 1796, brings to a brand new iteration of readers a undying vintage of gothic fiction that has stimulated writers from Byron and Emily Brontë to Poe and Hawthorne.
