About this product Product Information Supernatural events, women in distress, and a corrupt clergy were popular themes in the Gothic novels of the 19th century.

Set in a sinister Capuchin monastery in Madrid, the ever-more horrifying narrative recounts the experiences of a lustful and devious abbot, who forgoes his monastic vows in the face of temptation and sexual obsession.

Dover Thrift Editions: The Monk by Matthew Lewis (2003, Paperback)

Seduced by an evil woman and intoxicated by desire, he assaults an innocent young girl and to conceal his guilt murders her mother. For these and other unholy offenses, he is apprehended and imprisoned, where he is subject to unpleasant treatment at the hands of the ecclesiastical authorities. In order to escape, he sells his soul to the devil, discovering in the aftermath the grim consequence of his horrifying acts. The most famous work in the otherwise unremarkable literary production of "Monk" Lewis, the novel's anticlericalism and heavy-breathing eroticism earned it a scandalous reputation in its time that was still intact years after its publication.

Today, more than two centuries later, the unvarnished crime and passion of "The Monk" still retain the ability to jar readers even those inured to the violence and degradation of modern life.

Read an Excerpt Upon the pleasant veranda of Pere Antoine's cottage, that adjoined the church, a young girl had long been seated, awaiting his return. It was the eve of Easter Sunday, and since early afternoon the priest had been engaged in hearing the confessions of those who wished to make their Easters the following day.

The girl did not seem impatient at his delay; on the contrary, it was very restful to her to lie back in the big chair she had found there, and peep through the thick curtain of vines at the people who occasionally passed along the village street.
