Lewis, Matthew Gregory (Monk)


Introduction by Stephen King. The Monk was originally published in 1796. A great commercial success, probably the most scandalous of the gothic genre. Murder, incest, the Spanish Inquisition, sexual obsession, erotic passages stoked with violence and religious struggles - and John Thorpe talked about reading it in front of the ladies! Paper.
